stamp out spam!

Sad to say, times have changed.
Due to unwarranted and unwanted traffic on my blog,
I've installed every bell, hoop and whistle I can find.
Sorry to ask you to jump and shout.
Don't take it personally.
Unless you should.

I'm sad to hear it. Yours was one of the few blogger blogs where I didn't have to jump through hoops. And my ageing eyes can't make out those squished letters and teeny-tiny numbers. But for you I will continue to comment. (Lucky you???)

Now I will have to suffer through my many attempts while I continue to get the message: The characters you entered didn't match the word verification. Please try again.

Well done, Carol! Thanks for hanging in there.

I might have to do the same. This could be my photo; I have a collection of canes.

It's a tough call. Good that there's traffic. Bad that it's going the wrong direction.

I'm up for the letters and numbers. Just got a new pair of glasses!

Glasses and canes?
Hey, whatever it takes!

I have to agree that spam sucks! Sorry you have to pull up the drawbridge. I get spam sometimes, but so far (knock on wood!) not enough to re-establish word and number verification. FYI any two numbers works for the numerical part of the verification. Word verification remains the same.

happy to jump through hoops for the cause! Nice cane

I like spam. Aside from its breakfast potential, the email kind makes me feel wanted. Now-- you kids get off my lawn!!

I had a feelling the word verif had become slack.

Feel free to use the cane for help through the hoops.

Spam, the national dish of Hawaii. I can do spam sushi, but spam poke pushes the limit.

I get tons of spam... and I hate deleting it, but that word verification system blogger has is awful! Yet... here I go, so I can comment on your blog... :D
