Blog Comment Problems

Just FYI, Nathan, I haven't commented on your blog in awhile, so when I tried today I discovered the word verification system was a little more stringent. Took me six tries before I finally figured out what the darn thing said. A couple of times, the photo part was literally just a gray blob on a lighter gray blob. I don't have a gray blob key on my keyboard. :D

You have to special order them direct from Microsoft. Look in the same section where they sell ergonomic keyboards.

Hey guys, thanks for the feedback. I'm going to turn off the word verification for a while -- last time I did this the site was deluged in spam, so I can't guarantee I'll be able to keep it that way, sorry!

A comment I made an hour ago using my Blogger ID (John T. Shea) re Nathan's moving to NYC has yet to show up.

Yeah, sometimes comments get randomly held up by Blogger's spam filter. I think it's there now.

Sorry guys, switching back to verification. The spam is just out of control. Don't forget that if you can't read the verification thing you can ask to see another one.

Otherwise, please complain to Google about how these are unreadable.

Yeah, without verification the spam is so bad I can't find anything.
