Word Verification

I have decided to enable the word verification for comments.
Here is the explanation for it taken directly from Blogger's help files:

What is the word verification option?
The "word verification" option can be found on the Settings Comments tab for your blog.

If you choose "yes" for this setting, then people leaving comments on your blog will be required to complete a word verification step.

What this does is to prevent automated systems from adding comments to your blog, since it takes a human being to read the word and pass this step. If you've ever received a comment that looked like an advertisement or a random link to an unrelated site, then you've encountered comment spam. A lot of this is done automatically by software which can't pass the word verification, so enabling this option is a good way to prevent many such unwanted comments.


  1. That's wonderful. I think that if you have a lot of spam that that is a great option.


  2. It so nice to have helpful pals. I just applied the word verification myself.


I appreciate you taking the time and effort to leave a comment. I will try to answer any questions you have. Please note due to Blogger changing word verification so almost nobody can read it, I have had to change to no word verification and only allow registered users to comment.
