The word verification process on Blogger doesn't invite us in. If I were a spammer, I'd find a way to leave my comment because that's my job, to invade, to create a nuisance. This complicated process of copying down two different words that are barely legible is most annoying. I spend less time writing this post, searching for this picture, and pressing the publish button than adding a comment.
Those who want to, can take a stronger stand by moderating all comments before they go public. With the present word identification process on, a whole lot of people like me will give up after the first try!
We should all write to Bloggers, or drop the device, or device something else.
