I’ve been to two Blogger sites in the last week where the owner had enabled Capchas. If the name isn’t familiar, it’s those weird letter things that pop up to help screen out spammers. The text is often extremely distorted, because computers used for spamming can’t read it.
I’ve found it’s hard for me to read it, too. Especially when letters like m and n run together. I have to go through at least three or four rounds of capchas to post a comment. That’s enough to make me go away and not bother, which means fewer comments for the blogger. Lately, after a capcha rejection, I’ve been adding the following to my comment: “Is the spam that bad that these capchas are required?” It is that annoying!
What annoys you about common things bloggers do?
