Word Verification...

Just a note to those of you who have word verification on your blogs......

I can't leave comments for you, as much as I would like to. It's not that I am protesting anything, it is that I truly can't. my eyes can not see the letters and numbers that are printed for us to type. I try and try, and I can not get my brain to wrap itself around what is printed. I spent over 5 minutes and a dozen tries on one person's blog one day.

With my seizures and migraines, I guess my brain just doesn't grasp those tightly bound images. add in my chemo brain, and it's now a jumbled up mess. We are finding that I have permanent damage in one of my eyes from the chemo, so you can see why those word verifications are truly impossible for me to see. I have tried listening to the letters, but did you know that they just keep listing things on and on and on? they don't stop! ;)

if you choose comment moderation rather than word verification, you can still stop or keep track of spammers on your blog.

just a little opinion from someone who would love to say hello, but truly can't.

Jennifer, I know what you mean--I have "old" eyes and it is difficult for me to see the darned things, too! I wish there were no such thing as word verification! So glad you posted this! :^)

They are such a pain, I agree with you Jennifer! the newer versions are even worse - it sometimes takes me 2 or 3 times to complete but now if it doesn't work, I just give up!

I find it a pain & I don't have siezures!! If I don't get it first time I don't even try to somewhere more "inviting" I go! Have a great day!
Hugs, Renee

I don't understand why people still use Jennifer said, just choose comment moderation. I have no clue what some of these sites with word verification want...because no matter what you type in, it doesn't like it....and I generally can see the letters.
So I vote...turn it off~! Doesn't serve any purpose. Sure you will get some spam...but that is what the delete button is for.

Count me in as another one who really struggles with Word Verification? I don't know why it's such a challenge for me...maybe Fibro Fog...maybe because I don't have the best eyes...who really knows.

All I can say is that it's a real Pain in the Butt and as much as I try to leave comments, when I can, I now give up on any blog where it is turned on!

Please be kind to ALL and kindly TURN Off - Word Verification!!

Thanks and special thanks to Jenn for sharing another example of how many of us struggle with those silly words and numbers!!
