PSA 2012


a friendly blogger-hood reminder

...


for the love of everything holy and pinterest,
please turn off the new captcha.

if we don't put our foot down, when will it end?
I envision, years from now, our children trying to leave their "love it!" and "follow me, and I'll follow you!" comments on blogs around the world,
only to be met with the brand new 100 piece puzzle captcha.

that, my fellow bloggericans, is a world I don't want to see.


show word verification for comments?
turn that "yes" into "no"
and
that frown upside down


Vote Baby Bean 2047!


xoxo

Thank you! I've practically given up trying to comment on posts more than once because I can't read the bloody captcha!

Also, Bean, you've got my vote.

Oh my word how annoying! Like what are the chances that it's going to be robot typing in a comment? Or a pet? Or whoever else you're trying to prevent from commenting on your blog.

Get. Rid. Of it. People.

a.men. And if those people just happen to actually get a few spam comments, they can just go delete them. It's a few seconds of work for them compared to MINUTES trying to read those damn things for all of us.

Teri Brown said...

I've been preaching this on Twitter for a week now--the new captcha is SO DIFFICULT!!! I haven't had mine on for a year, and spam comments VERY RARELY get through. Since I approve all comments, I just don't approve those. WAY better.

Papatigga said...

no kidding...i hate those things...though I think it would be really funny if, when I hit "post comment" on this page I were greeted with one! you should do that. just for me. even though you have no idea who i am and by now your probably getting really annoyed with this guy who thinks hes funny and witty but really hes just kind of annoying....but your still a little intrigued. are you still reading this? cause if so you've made it way farther than most people. I cant even get peole to listen to me tak for this long. Im pretty sure your in love with me now, and though I'll bet your a lovely person, I am married and we can never be.....but we will always have today and no one can take that from us......

Totally agree, I hate it. It's super annoying...people, take it off please!

Simply Valorie said...

It is SO ANNOYING. It makes me not want to leave a comment!

Unpublished Life said...

There is nothing more annoying! I turned mine off a few weeks back and have not looked back since:)

Thanks for putting the word out!

Oh my gosh THANK YOU! It's so horrible! You cannot read it and what's with the accents?! So annoying. Why did it need to be changed in the first place?!

Stephanie said...

I just tweeted this post. I HATE the captcha b.s. and whenever it pops up I'm seriously tempted to just give up and delete my would-be comment. It's like my words are being held hostage until I figure out what the eff blogger wants me to type!

Also, can we have a psa about connecting your email to your account so we can respond to comments via email? :)

Lynn {hearted girl} said...

Bonnie, you friggin' RAWK!!!! you got my vote Baby Bean and your momma knows of what she speaks....preach on......... awesome! ♥

Taylor said...

These things are driving me crazy... what human can understand them??

Kristin B said...

Cate said...

Thank you for writing this!!

Amanda said...

Holler! Could I be any more gangster? Seriously though, I am despising this new captcha sh*t! With a passion.

Erin said...

Thanks for the reminder. I didn't even realize I still had my word verification turned on. However, I had to switch back to the "old interface" to turn it off. Is there a way to do it on the new Blogger?

Alexis Kaye said...

hahahahahahha

:)

kristen said...

Phew! Just got rid of mine a few weeks ago! (Excuse: I'm newish at this). Anyway! Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog! (For a second I typed "glob," and I think I actually like that better and will probably use it from now on. Happy globbing!)

elvi said...

Hahah Yessss I thought I was the only person getting annoyed by the new words...I just sit and stare at it trying to make sure I typed it right...some of them are sooo hard to read!

Michaela said...

OMG. thank you. I don't even comment on blog that have the code thingy!!!

Gina Gao said...

Megan said...

Oh my gosh, seriously thank you!! I can't stand the new two words ones!

Tatiana said...

I turned mine off a few days ago. The new words are making me cross eyed. But now I may get spammed like a motha'. At least that's what happened last time I tried to do without....

Shutterbug said...

I agree! And I'm happy to hear that I'm not the only one that feels that way!

Gail @ Sophisticated Steps said...

Loathsome.

If anyone can get the message across, it's Baby Bean!

Nicki said...

Thanks you! I couldn't agree with you more. Soon, enough it's going to be full on sentences. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!!!!!!

Sara B said...

Shawnee said...
