Blogger’s New Word Verification Look

Just like majority of other bloggers out there, one of my routine is to hop into other blogger’s blog, read and leave comments. Yeah, I know many out there who skipped the reading part and goes straight to comment just to leave their footprint. It is obvious in food post where we painstakingly wrote about how bad the food was even though they looked good in pictures and you see comments such as, “DELISH! MUST BRING MY FRIENDS TO CHECK OUT THIS PLACE SOON!” -.- I’m guilty as charged so no complain is being lodged :P

Recently I find that Blogger has a new word verification look. It is a nuisance as I get the words wrong most of the time!

Just take a look at the picture above. To prove I’m not a robot, I have to type the word verification in the given box. OK now, can any human out there tell me what the heck is the first word?! Try as I might I just can’t get it right! I ended up typing nonsense such as ABC or anything just to get to the next word…

There, second time’s a charm. I typed that in and my comment went thru. If I have to do that for like 5 out of the 10 blogs I visit will be such a waste of my time! Stress giler I tell you! >_<

I prefer the old word verification look. Simpler and clearer -.-

    I HATE IT!!!! And with slow connections like mine, it really is HELL!!!

    I thought it was optional and was thinking to myself: these @#$%^&* nobodies so scared of getting spammed might as well close their accounts.

    Want people to comment, must make it as user-friendly as possible. Sendiri, go here go there, do this do that…complain everything not user friendly…and own blog like hell man!!!

    Log in already taking ages! What are all those decorations for? A whole lot of crap – reflects the shallow bunga-bunga mentality. It’s the content (and photos) than matters most. Tsk! Tsk!

    I prefer Ken Wooi’s verification. A simple tick and no nuisance. Word verification makes me reluctant to even visit their blog. =(

    [Reply]

    I find this very annoying too. You can click on the arrow (next to the box) the generate a new set of words but then, the new sets of words are equally hard to see, esp the one on the left. I so don’t like this!

    [Reply]

  • //

    Crazy! Have to type at least 3 times to get it right. Geram nya.
