I hate to do this to you, but it was out of control

I just turned on comment word verification on this blog.  I really hate to do that to those of you who are nice enough to comment but the spammers are getting way out of control.

I had hoped things would improve when google turned on a spam option for comments, I thought maybe..just maybe..it would start catching them.  I've been disappointed.

Thanks for understanding!

That is why I have to approve before any goes through. :) I understand completely! (hugs)

The verification is an extra step, true, but it's better than letting spammers put junk all over your blog!

Krista - I do approve the messages, but the amount of spam that I now get is so ridiculous that it's frustrating me. I'm hoping the word verification helps with that.

Karen - I couldn't agree more! Ugh..stupid spammers. I wish there was a way to get back at them.

It's fun to see what the word verification selection is each time I comment. Sometimes, with certain programs, they can be hard to read, but I haven't had too much trouble with Blogger word verification.

Literary Feline - I do get a kick out of the words sometimes and you're right..blogger is usually pretty easy to read.
