1) An Appeal.
Please fellow Bloggers, remove word verification from your blogs.
I love to read what you have to say, and I know you love it when readers leave a word, a thought, a note.
But word verification makes doing that, annoying and repetitive not to mention discouraging.
Is it only me or do the words we need to type in reappear frequently?
2) Saw this on a site and just had to share
"Give a person a fish and you feed them for a day; teach that person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks"
3) If you wonder why The Pragmatician doesn’t link to you yet, then the answer is that I will post links to all my faithful readers' blog soon.
BTW. I love the soup mandels you put on your blog!!!!
Have a good shabbos
Have you had the fish shaped soup mandels yet?
I understand you'll want Word verification back on if spamming gets out of control!
Kasamba-I'm not sure how to undo it, but try this link
And when you get to my age, and the contacts combined with the reading glasses are not the best optical quality, there is a definite issue.
I must say it annoyed me too, I personally never had those spam comments, but I have watched Eshet's blog and they were non-stop.
I will also experiment it, but we should all keep an eye on each others blogs, so if there will be spam, e-mail the blogger, in case they dont get to see it.
BTW what about the croutons?? I saw an advertisement for passover croutons, are we hooked?
Now how about writing up something (rules) for commentors, I once started writing up such a list, but got lost in middle and probably have it saved somewhere on my computer...
Uch..I hate word verification...
Thanks for bringing up the important point..
It seems to have shown some dividents already
Cute quote :)
Kasamba- One of the missing ones
Mia-I can’t eat a soup without.
Swiftthinker-if it’s to fill his belly, no
If it’s to provide him with nourishment, then yes.
Masmida-If you delete a few times, Sheila and Bert get the message.
Must gum-BTW way does must gum come as kasher le-Pessach?
Even you’re being spammed even with WV, then you can still disallow anonymous comments.
Sarah-Thanks for trying
Jameel-Did you test that theory?
G green-I don’t think so.
So did you deactivate WV?
The Red pen-Indeed it does, deleting a few spam message takes about 10 sec.
Emanuel ben zion- Glad you share my opinion.
Emah s-You’re welcome and thanks for setting a good example.
Eshet- Thanks for trying
Barbara-I didn’t even think about that, but it’s just another good reason.
Rebecca- Yeah that’s very annoying, but I think it became less bad, it’s worth a try.
Shop-Easier that way, the job is already done!
Moochy-Yes I can’t believe it, it’s a pleasant surprise.
I always post a pic and didn’t know which one was appropriate for this post, since we call the croutons “tidbits” at home, I chose this pic.
In a couple of days you’ll be among the first: )
Mata-I love it when people agree with me!thanks
Chasidshe- It’s a thought, I wouldn’t really know what rules to set, but it’s something to consider.
David-I’ve been a fan of you’re not resorting to using WVblog, since WV started.
Nemo-Or to spare the ones who leave comments the trouble of entering WV.
Shoshana-I wondered the same thing :)
I also hate word verification. I don't get that much spam, but I'll take it rather than force people to perform the tedious task of deciphering those hard-to-read letters and typing them in.
Thanks for stopping by and kol hakavod foor refraining from using WV.
Ok, ok, I can see that NOBODY likes word verification much; it is somewhat of a pain. I think I might disable it for my blog. Maybe I'd get more comments that way?
BTW, your blog is pleasant on the eyes and easy to read. And interesting! I wish I had started blogging b/4 Purim, b/c I have so much to say on the subject! But it is not timely anymore. Suffice it to say that my husband makes a FANTASTIC fried Purim star for mishloach manot! It's been our 'trademark' for years now...
