Blogger has changed the word verification and what was previously a simple spam filter
is often now very difficult to work out and very time consuming.

I've been giving it three attempts and then giving up,
 so if you don't hear from me and you have this new word verification, I'm sorry.
 I'll come back to your blog later when I have more time and give it another go if I can.



  1. Its a pain........... I hate it too!
    Funny you haven't got word verification

  2. It's been driving me crazy since they changed it. So far I've persevered, and it's usually taking me a couple of attempts on each comment to get it right. I'm getting to the stage if someone has word verification on, I'm not going to comment. I'm sorry too.

  3. I feel the same way. There is a way to turn the word verification off. I don't remember how, but I think if you go to "help" and ask it will walk you through

  4. it is a pain in the a*rse!

    I turned mine off and use moderation settings. That way if there's some rubbish been posted by spammers, I just delete it before it gets published.

  5. Some of them are totally impossible. Just going to check my own settings...

  6. I just saw my first one this morning. I swear they are now trying to make it as difficult as possible for us. Yes, what a pain it is.

  7. I thought it was just me being stupid!It is a real pain and i wish they would go back to the old way.

  8. When they get all this negative feedback, I expect it will go back to the old system.
    Kath's comment reminded me of an old saying when I was at work.
    If something new didn't work we would write 'BOTTOMS' on the drawings.
    It stood for -
    "Back Over To The Old Manual System!"

  9. It seems like if I get one word right they both go through ...

  10. everyone hates it...it is such a pain!
    don't worry

  11. Oooh, I couldn't agree more. I just went to Bernard's blog to leave a message and found it had changed. Grrrr!!!!

  12. Totally agree with you - its awful.

    I've sent you a little award, enjoy. http://shevvylondon.blogspot.com/2012/02/award-winning-blogger-me.html

  13. I have taken it off my site, so come baaaack please! It's such a silly change for blogger to have made.
    Where can we complain?
