Over the last few weeks I've been receiving complaints from readers regarding the rigorous process that leaving comments on my blog has become. I totally sympathize: as someone who comments a lot on my own blogs, I appreciate that Google's newly introduced tough measures imposed on those wishing to comment on my blogs are quite painful.
So I figured enough is enough. and decided to cancel the security verification that's currently required if one wishes to enter a comment. I went to my blogs' setup pages, looking for that particular parameter, and... I found out that Google removed it altogether. That is, Google took this parameter out of the blogger's hands. Ooh, there's another reason for me to move to WordPress! In retaliation I reverted back to the old Blogger interface (the one that predated Google desperately trying to make everything look like Google+). There I found the setting still existed!Thus I cancelled the word verification requirements for entering comments on my blog. I hope this won't open the floodgates on spam, but in the mean time - entering your comments here should be much easier.
