We've all seen these monsters...the word verification nightmare. Many of these I can read, but there are those out there that I just can't. Sometimes I've tried about three times to get the comment on there, but alas, I eventually give up.
Or...has anyone tried to purchase anything on Ticketmaster? I swear those buttheads are sitting there mocking me. They have their letters and number jumbled AND they put criss-crosses through them. WTF? I only have like 2 minutes to secure these seats to ArenaCross and I'm messing with "Is that a 6 or a G?"
Some systems are set up (and I want to know how) that the words are WAY easy. Where do I sign up for that? Someday...in my ample free time utopia...I'm going to take some sort of blogging class. Until then...I learn on the streetz. How am I doing so far?
Well, my lovely blogging friends. I feel remiss in telling you that I've now had to take this measure to eliminate the hackers that keep trying to send viruses. It's happened here, on the Grandy laptop, well the first one before I had to exchange it...not my fault because it was already getting the "BSOD" (blue screen of death).
If you happen to see comments from anyone with a strange name (no NOT Derfwad) where the comment says anything like:
Urgent: Please see here or here.
See Please here. (oh yeah, this is not a typo but really this silly)
If you happen to get any of these comments on your blog, DO NOT click "here". If you click the person's name it takes you to a bio of sorts that has "FLASH" as the website. This is something that will instantly start sending a virus to your computer. When I had done it my Anti-Virus started going NUTS!!
For a while, I've tried deleting the comments. But those pesky boogers just keep coming back! I've done some research on these and because the names keep changing I don't know if blogger can do much to rectify.
I know I will quite often check out what other peoples' sites are through the comment screen. I grew fearful one of my wonderful readers might do that and have this problem. I don't want any viruses out there because of my blog so reluctantly I've caved to using word verification.
Perhaps after a while I'll be able to do something different, but I'm sorry. I want everyone in the blogging world to be safe.
That's Grandy! Doing what she can to make the blogosphere a better and safer place.
Is it working yet??
