I don't usually post on Thursday and chances are this post will get buried between yesterday's post and tomorrow's Fab Five but I just couldn't take it anymore!
You know, I'm all for letting a blogger, on any platform, do what they need to do to get their blog the way they want it. You want to blare music? Fine. You want to add 1,000,000 blinkies and buttons in your sidebars? Fine. You want to talk about something cool without linking to it and force me to spend three hours on Google looking for what you were talking about? Fine. You want to moderate your comments? Fine. You want to make me enter a captcha when I leave a comment?
Actually, in reference to Blogger specifically, it hasn't been that bad. Enter some word and I can get on with my blog visits, okay sure. BUT something has happened recently to make me lose the few marbles I had left in my quest to visit and comment on as many blogs as I could.
Blogger has made their captcha harder and I don't mean in the fun "That's what she said" sort of way. I mean they saw how painful it was for me to enter in a simple word multiple times before getting it right and decided it was so hilarious to see me cry that they made it TWO words you have to enter and most of the time they're beyond comprehension. Are robots really that much of a threat? Even Cylons turned out okay in the end.
Maybe it's just me? Maybe I just need to put on my big blogger panties and quit my whining. Which I will but before I do that: When I get way too tired (or frustrated in this case) I tend to get a little silly and I decided to have some fun with captcha after attempting to comment on one blog FOUR times and getting it wrong every single time.
The best part was, after I got bored playing I misspelled the captcha on the blog I was visiting and had to write my comment over...
