A couple of days ago, over at Buck's place, blog-buddy Buck was up in arms about this eye watering torture that some bloggers subject their commenters to. While reading that post I said to myself, "Oh yeah, I HATE that crap!"
Then what do I see today in a comment to a recent post? On my very own blog. This:
"THREE attempts at word verification. Just sayin'."
My first reaction was, of course, "Say what?"
Oh no, have I been inflicting this on my commenters?
So I go to my blog and attempt to comment as "Anonymous", and sure enough the frickin' eye chart pops up.
Damn! How do I turn that sh!t off?
So I log in, find the offending setting and promptly disable it. A retest revealed no eye chart popping up.
My sincerest apologies, regrets, etc., etc. to those of you who in the past may have wanted to comment but couldn't get past that crap above.
Mea maxima culpa.
I am mortified.
Now the gates have been flung wide to all and sundry.
Hopefully no "bots" wander in off the streets.
I'll take that chance.
Stay thirsty my friends...
