No Comment

Comments 

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.

thank you!

On a different subject: you've been pre-approved for a new credit card.

Sarah said...

Have nothing to say just wanted to check the system out.

Feel free to buy me something nice with your new credit card.

You may be enjoying new credit cards, but I'm already dealing with suggestions on how to get bigger boobs. As I said, it's an experiment.

I'm afraid the party's over. Or, in other words, I got too many offers for penis enlargements last night.
It's not only me that has to wade through the spam. The problem is that it's unfair on all those that left post comments before and are now getting spam each time a new comment is added.
So I put word verification back on...

Have you checked any of these offers? Do they provide the commitment?

I think I need to type now "highlach uranal", wonder if it will pass.
uranal sound so cool

Moshe Reuveni said...

Nope - it's still tiny.

too bad (the fact that you had to return the word check).
