Fast forward to three years ago, I had already decided to allow anyone to comment and with the advent of the new spam filters put into place by Google/Blogger, I also decided to no longer moderate comments (with one exception - comments on posts over 14 days old need my approval). I still used word verification.
Two years ago, or thereabouts, Google/Blogger changed the CAPTCHA they were using for word verification and it became almost impossible to discern the characters. I turned it off on all my blogs, knowing how much it frustrated me.
Now we come to the present and once again, Google/Blogger has upgraded the word verification. Now we have to enter TWO words with a mix of case and symbols. Definitely more frustrating than ever.By the way, it's not just me. I've read several blogs recently on the same topic.
