~ Frustrated ~




For those of you that don't know me or haven't seen a photo, this is really not me!  But....it's what I'm turning into with these "word verifications" on blogs.  Help me, Rhonda, help me!  The images are very difficult to decipher and sometimes one has to try 2-3 times to leave a response on a blog.  That is not fun!  My eyes are crossing and I'm beginning to utter profanity ~  


Seriously, word verification is NOT needed.  You can elect to approve all comments if you'd like. I had a bit of spam when I first began blogging but it was minor and none at all now.  I know you realize that "time" is a huge factor for all....and saving time by NOT having word verification would benefit everyone.  Some of us with more "mature" eyes would just love you to death if you would remove it from your blogs.  :-)


Thanks a million times over!!

Amen! I do not have many marbles left, and this is just about to do me in.

I don't have word verification on, do I? If I do, please tell me how to fix it!

Thanks for all your wonderful comments and encouragement, Pat! :0)

Lisa said...

YES, sistah...I hear you! It takes entirely wayyy too much time...especially when you have to keep trying to verify! Love the pic even if it isn't really YOU! XO

Susie said...

When I leave a comment and those crazy words come up,if I can't make them out...I just click send without the verification, then new words pop up. sometimes the next words up are easier to read, then I can send it. Smiles to you,Susie(She Junks)

Hi Pat, I agree,and it is especially hard for me right now. I can't believe how different font sizes and pale colors cause eye strain! xo

Sandy said...

Awwww, mom! I have had the same troubles with that dang feature!
I sometimes just leave a blog
comment section when I see one.. sorry for all who use it but
it's annoying and I don't like
to take the time to use it.
I'm with you!
Get rid of it!

I think the biggest problem is that folks just don't even know it's on their blog! I feel your frustration and wish Blogger would just make it go away:@)

Lisa said...

Amen to that!

Brenda said...

I totally agree! I can't even be bothered anymore leaving comments where I have to try and decipher the word. Good post!

Girl, I thought I was looking in the mirror. Can I just say, I HATE WORD VERIFICATION! 2 tries and I'm out and if I had not just spent the time typing my comment, I would not even bother with the second try!! Amen! SISTA!

poppilinnstudios said...

Agreeeee! Jeez, thought it was just me-can't read those annoying words either.

Korrie@RedHenHome said...

Double ditto! But Pat, dear, I wish you would link up an e-mail to your blogger account! Did you know you're a "no-reply" blogger?

sonya said...

It IS very annoying! I think I turned my off! I hope I did! If not-I hope someone lets me know!

Hey Pat, was going to email you but it's not on your profile, I got the curtains at Ikea they are linen and they were cheap... and they have them in many colors, and sizes mine are 96 inches hope this helped.

Thank you so much Pat! I love to make comments, but it is very difficult when you try 2 or 3 times and still can't get it right. Sometimes our older eyes have a problem with those things. I am sure glad to know that I am not the only one! Hope you are having a great week end!
