Sadly, Word Verification is Back

Google Captcha When I wrote about commenting on Blogger last month (Why does commenting suck?), one outcome of the discussion was that the Blogger Word verification (captcha) system causes people problems, so I turned it off.

Sadly, after a one month trial, there is just too much spam on Blogger, and the spam system doesn't catch enough of it (unlike Akismet on Wordpress), so sadly the captcha is back here.



  1. I have had to completely disable commenting on my UCT blog(s) because of the complete inability of the system to discriminate benign from malign. So it goes..!

  2. 24 hours with the captcha back on - no spam (c.f. 3-4 per hour previously :-(
