To re-activate or not that is the question. In the last few days since removing word verification I've received several spam comments from someone called "Anonymous." One was not really words but the other was something about a blow job? In the 2 years I've had this blog I have never received any spam until now. I have not had word verification until recently when Blogger made changes.
Maybe I'm a little naive but what's to gain from these spam messages? I don't get it. Are they just to annoy us or are they carrying virus'. All my comments have to be checked by me before posting so they don't go straight to my blog.
I don't mind the word verification, it's just that lately it has been made so difficult, it's hard to leave comments, I've given up on some after trying several times. That's not good, we all thrive on the comments, we are a needy bunch. Plus we want to know someone out there is interested in what we have to share and for those that are depending on the traffic for income this is even more important.
So what can we do, complain to Blogger? Or Google? I know many of us have been talking about the issue but who can we contact that will get our message. We could occupy something, or have a protest march, or a sit in............ That actually might be fun we could have wine and chocolates brought in.
So what do you think, what's happen to you since removing word verification, have you removed it?
That's my ranting for today.
