WORD VERIFICATION

Am I dumb as dirt? Please, please someone tell me that you, too, have trouble with those word verification doo-dahs that you have to do when you leave a comment. I know I am a fairly intelligent woman...able to read all my letter and numbers. And even though I have to go slowly on long division sometimes...I am a voracious reader. But, those letters get to me sometimes. I just left a comment on a blog (Tracey) and I had to do it over 4 times. I am not proud of this. I am ashamed to even tell you, my friends...but I am hoping maybe someone else is afflicted as well. Is it the bifocals? Is it age? Is it my lack of attention to the little things? Is it my OCD kicking in because I subconciously want those letters to be nice and straight? Whatever it is, please tell me I'm not the only one....

Believe me, you're not the only one! I can't tell v's from w's and q's from g's half the time.

That's without my glasses. I can only imagine what it would look like with the bifocals on!

Hi Tonja...it is so nice to meet you, and I'm glad that you came to visit me. You are so right that we all have so much in common, and just enough difference and variety to add interest!

I, too, have trouble with those verification things. Even when I *know* I typed it correctly, another pops up.

I look forward to seeing what you are up to, and hope that you'll visit again soon.

Fondly, Andrea

It's definitely a blogger problem. I have to redo mine almost every time, and I know I'm not that careless!

It is such a pain! But, if I don't have the word verification on there, I get "spammed" with all kind of naughty little comments!

I have trouble with it too...the letters are all squished together and I can't tell what they are most of the time!

Me too! And according to my eye doc, I still have 20/20! I haveto keep it on for all the spam too.

I'm so glad to see you blog on this. I really have a hard time getting them right, too! Even when I'm sure I did it right. I agree with everyone else, though -- it's great to have the safety precaution, but it does make me feel dumb.

Hi, Tonja, great to meet you on my blog! I'm finding new folks out there everyday too & glad you found your way to mine. So, you're in Dothan & we're neighbors. I'm really enjoying B'ham so much & YES, I shop at Homegoods! Great store & I always find stuff in there...more than I need to. We have plenty of great shopping around here!

And NO...you're not the only one that has problems with the word verification thing. I do not have it enabled on my blog & so far, so good...I haven't had any problem with spam. I hope to keep it that way cause I don't enjoy having to read those wavy, crazy letters..I've messed them up more than once & I blame it on the eyes going...that thing that happens sometime after 40! Hate it! Please come back & visit me often.

I found you through the CWO ring. I am so glad to see that I am not the only one who has trouble reading some of those verifications.

Hi Tonja

Thanks for visiting my blog. You're most welcome...anytime.

I had to chuckle when I read this post. Yes, yes, yes, I've had my share of problems with the word verification part! I thought it was only me...I feel soooo much better now that I've read this post and the other comments you've received. It always seems to be the v's and w's and q's and g's for me too. And sometimes the numbers.

You're not alone!

I have trouble with it too! And I think it's blogger, not us!
