So over at Betsy's way, she had a post the other day, bringing up word verifying things, about some of the crap the word verification sings. Most of the crap is funny, some right on the money, but it is another annoying step, just to give your comment pep.
Of course the Silver Fox said he liked it to keep the spammers away, although quite frankly I don't see many spammers where I stray. Once and a while some big long rant type thing shows up, but one can easily delete that hiccup. But then that is adding another step too, not for others, but for you.
Brian spouted off how he hates it acting all mean, although coming from a comment machine, I can see how he'd hate that, it slows down him reading/leaving comments on the next person's mat. Wouldn't want to throw off his groove, as onward he has to move..LOL
But it does allow posts like the one Betsy made and that wouldn't be the case if it were to fade. Then again maybe one could make up their own words, by the herds and use that, instead of wearing the word verification hat. That would have a big down side though and would really make Grammar Nazi's eyes go, as making up words could be bad, they'd look like ghusit, juseit, pwout, houyt, so sad.
Also I guess one good thing about it, as sometimes you can see if you spelled something off a bit and change it if you like or shrug, telling it to take a hike. Where as posting right away, if you see it you don't have the time of day, to change a single thing, when you give your comment ring. Although if you aren't lazy it shouldn't matter anyway, for one should see it before they stray and hit submit, giving their two cent fit. Never ever going to be perfect all the time either way though, as some slip by no matter how much you know.
As for the cat I don't care one way or the other, as I just carry on with one another, whether you have to pay the word verification fare or it isn't there. Although when a blog is really really slow, like certain ones I know because there is too much widget crap, word verification really doesn't want to make you stop, comment and flap, as it just takes to long to beat that gong.
So there are ups and downs to it I guess, just like almost every other thing I confess. But I could turn it off if you'd like, until when/if spam comes and I need to tell them to take a hike. So if you want to share your facts and see it turned off at my rhyming tracks, know majority rules, unless I think you're fools. Then I just win and sit here with a big grin. haha That just came out, oh don't pout. I even worked in a shout, to those that come and gloat. Even if a certain one ate crow, it's still fun don't you know. So the word verification for today is frass, aren't I a fun little rhyming ass?
Later all, have a nice fall.
