Verification Difficulty

I don't know about anyone else, But I am having a very difficult time with the word verification for blogger.
I am wearing glasses to compensate for my own visual deficit & apparently the verification system opposes my glasses so if i do not comment it is because I am starting to get headaches when I blog -
I am having a terrible time with this ----
Apparently I am a Robot !!!!!!!!

I am following blogs with Google Reader !!!
Enjoy your week

You are not alone. They have changed it to two words and I can't read them. The other day I tried 3 or 4 times to get it posted. Ridiculous. I have already sent feedback about the new layout. Now I will send another complaint. Grrrr. x

Margaret said...

Yes, I think everyone is having difficulty with the new system. Which is why I got rid of it on my blog. I hope I don't live to regret it. lol!

cucki said...

Yup it is all very annoying,,I really don't know what to do..I hope the blogger stop this new word verification ,,love and care xxx

Jackie said...

The "fuzzy" word is the one that I'm struggling with. For some reason when the background and font color reverses itself, I'm having trouble understanding what those letters are. Glasses haven't helped. I turned off verification on my blog several months ago.

Thank you Hazel - I thought it was just me.
I hope they change it soon !!!

Patty C. said...

I'm going to do the same

Patty C. said...

Thanks Cucki ;)

Patty C. said...

Good advice - Mine will be turned off today !

I am having problems with it, too! I've never used word verification. I DO get spam, but it goes directly into a spam section on my blog in the comments area (in my settings, so visible only to me). I check it every so often to make sure that the spam doesn't get into the visible comments, and that real comments don't go into the spam area. The cross over has only ever happened once. I get my comments emailed to me so I *do* see the (IMHO stupid) spam comments. I have to laugh at most of them--one of them that I keep getting is, "OMG, did you hear about what's happening in Syria?". No link or anything, just that. I have to wonder at the idiots that think up spamming people with that. LOL

Catherine said...

I think most of us are having problems! I am going to change mine today and hope they fix it soon!

I hate it too and will try and change mine once I get home. Thanks for struggling through and leaving me a comment!

Elisabetta said...

I know it's difficult,I removed it yestarday even if I get lots of spam messages without....but I do not want to make my stitcher's friends crazy!!!! ;)

Southpaw Stitcher said...

I, too, turned Word Verification off yesterday. Don't want to discourage folks from commenting...

Joy said...

It's crazy...I even posted on it! Have you tried listening for the word? http://countingbitsofjoy.blogspot.com/2012/02/not-blind-or-deaf.html
Why do they change a good thing?

Becky K in OK said...

So glad to know I am not alone. One thing I do know for sure, it isn't Bush's fault!!!

Sweet Sue said...

Same here Patty, pretty sure I turned mine off a long time ago but that doesn't mean it's still off, better check:)

Patty C. said...

Hugs Sue - My eyes need a break - lol

Thank you so much !!!!

Patty C. said...

Thank you Catherine ;)

Teresa said...

So glad to read I am not the only one. I can usually make out one word and guess on the other.
I might have to turn it off and get the spam mail.

PS - Yours is still asking for the two words

Ziggyeor said...

a few I have trouble with but most of the time I have to try again. I just visited a blog that has 400+followers so they might be getting spammers but if you haven't gotten spam there shouldn't be much need for the word identification.

Anna van Schurman said...

Click the button that looks like a volume control. It will speak words for verification (sounds like they are at a party with lots of background noise, but you get several distinct words).

Natasha said...

I too am having a hard time. I think I will take it off my blog.

sunny said...

I'm beginning to think BLogger doesn't want us blogging....

Bertie said...

You are not alone Patty, I have disabled my verification and if there is spam you can remove it on Dashboard.
Like your new layout!

Autumn said...

First time to visit here. I'm so glad I'm not alone. I can't read those words either!

Christine said...

It is awful isn't it? I'm OK with the slightly blurry word because it seems to usually be a real word so I guess your brain fills in the gaps, but the one with the black splodge behind seems to be just a random string of letters and I'm guessing them as often as not!

Angela said...

LOL! I just posted about this too. I am soooooo frustrated with it that I refuse to leave a comment when it appears. I know we are not alone :)

Theresa said...

I'm getting pretty good at guessing the words... @@
This is making it difficult to leave comments. For all my fellow blogger's eye sight, I think I will turn mine off for now...

Chris said...

Hi Patty, I hate it also, and everyone else I know does too. Why they don't get rid of it I don't know. Anyway, I'm just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

You're not the only one, I've just commented on another blog where she just can't comment on blogs anymore.

Did the powers that be actually test it first I wonder - no because it was a male environment and they think they know what they're doing.

Comment moderation is the only way to go now.

Sallie said...

I agree! It's too difficult to figure out! Sometimes I think it just gives up on me after my third attempt and just posts my comment. :)

Lynn said...

I'm also part of the majority who are having difficulties with the verification. I have never used it on my blog and have been lucky enough that I don't have any problems with spam.

cucki said...

it is truly so annoying..i put mine off as well..now it is word verification free..
so happy that it is fine now..
love for you xx

cucki said...

mine is off now..
yayyyyyyyy

Meari said...

The verification system is a pain in the rear! Sometimes it takes me 2 or 3 times to get it right.

Ginger said...

I hate the new format and it sometimes takes multiple attempts. Sigh....

Pumpkin said...

I'm with you on this one Patty! I HATE it too >:o(

Nicola said...

Every one is having difficulty, I have removed it from my blog.

Melanie said...

This. A thousand times over. Grrr.
