It has come to my attention as I was trapezing across the blogosphere that there is a lot of captcha, or "word verification" out there. And I'm not a fan of it, so I have prepared a gift for you!! I have manufactured a pie chart with my guesstimates of people who support the use of captcha. SEE WHAT I MEAN?
You might not even know your blog has it turned on! But if you wanna turn it off and you use Blogspot, go to your "Dashboard". Click "Settings". Click "Comments". Under "Show word verification for comments?" click NO.
So this is my silly protest against those silly squiggly words that you're secretly praying don't appear after you click "post comment". This is a protest against the countless hours that must add up typing in a word that you simply don't care about, sometimes two or three times if you mistype it! And this is a polite message, no, an imploring message, to all bloggers out there, to TURN THE DANG THING OFF. (Intense Debate / Disqus people, you guys rock)
If you would like to sign this petition, link up your blog URL below*, and YOUR BLOG BETTER NOT HAVE WORD VERIFICATION OF THE CAPTCHA ZOMBIE UNICORN WILL DEVOUR YOUR SOUL**. That is all***.

[edit 2.o] to the people who obviously didn't read anything and just linked up your blog... shame on you. I am just saying.
* I sure hope it works
**okay, I understand there are circumstances, like if you get an insane number of spam comments that you MUST keep it on, but still... Or you can just keep it off an make it 'registered users only' who can comment, that's what I do and I haven't gotten a single spam comment since I changed the setting (from anonymous comments allowed). Or turn on comment moderation.
***this post is NOT trying to insult blogs or hurt bloggers who use Word Verification. I'll bet your blog totally rocks. It just means commenting isn't as fun.
