Guess what? I didn't comment. "Type the two words"? Those aren't words. And you know what else? I have dyslexia. Typing NORMAL WORDS is hard for me. I can't do captchas. I'm not being self-deprecating. I literally can't do them. If you were to READ those letters to me so I could type them, I would screw it up. Just ask anyone who's ever tried to give me a phone number. I download a lot of stuff from blogs - digital scrapbooking freebies, tutorials, I save stuff with Evernote. I adore blogs. I just do. I could spend all day surfing around looking at them. But commenting, EVEN IF I'VE DOWNLOADED SOMETHING, I will only do if there is no captcha requirement. I love to comment, network, build relationships with people. Captchas stand solidly between me and expressing thanks or condolences or sharing ideas. This blog is captcha-free. Does this mean spam-free? Not 100%, but Blogger BLOCKS the spammers. Even the ones who try to post things like "love your idea, here's my website". Also, I feel like if a blogger is SUPER concerned about spam (although I don't see why you would care all that much since it doesn't actually affect you OR your blog), they can simply read their comments and delete the spam ones. And for the record, I find the phrase "Please prove you're not a robot" insulting. I have no idea why, since I'm not a robot, but I do. Rant over.
PS - I really felt like you could all use a light-hearted rant because of all the heavy stuff being ranted about lately.
