Word verification and why it sucks
It's finally come to this. I hate it, but I have no choice.
The STUPID word verification is on. Why? Becuse some yuk -yuk in China or Japan or someplace like that needs to spam and add comments in their foreign language.
Not that I don't love me some foreign language. I do. But how do I know they aren't calling me a stupid B or even *gasp* worse?
They could totally be swearing or putting something completely filthy and inappropriate and I would have no idea. They could then be showing all their friends and they would be talking and mocking and pointing their fingers and laughing. All the while, I have no clue what is happening. Come to think of it, it's kinda like going to the nail place. I swear they are talking about me.
Don't even get me started on the spam comments I CAN understand. Clarification - I can read them, but I can't understand what the crap they are talking about since the comment has nothing to do with the post, but more like thanks for letting me apply to college. HUH?
Sure, I could moderate comments, but that is just a lot of email that I really can't deal with. One email to say you have a comment, another to tell you it posted. Whatev. Who has time for that crap? Not me
Instead, we are all gonna have to suffer through the word verification and hope that the spam stops. And I apologize to those of you whom already have it on and I have loudly complained. Sorry.
