A few weeks ago, I discovered the very wonderful and hilarious blog called Clay Baboons. Its blogger, the lovely Stephanie (who is decidedly NOT a robot), has made it a mission to rid blogs of comment word verification.
Being a mindful blogger myself, I delved into ridding comment word verification once and for all in my corner of the internet. The removal process itself is simple enough.
I scroll down to the "Settings" menu and I read the question:
To which I say:
So I click "no"...
...and then confirm a change in settings on the top right-hand corner.
This inevitably leaves me feeling triumphant and certain that instant commentfication (I am so coining that) will soon be available for all!
I couldn't be more incorrect.
Being the paranoid person I am, I refresh the page to see if it worked. I scroll down the "Settings" menu and see this:
That's right. The word verification changes weren't made. It still says "yes" when I clearly asked it to say "no."
Undeterred, I repeat the whole process, hoping that once and for all, comment word verification will be eliminated and become a mere memory.
I then re-refresh the page.
And see this.
So the process is repeated.
And repeated, with some considerably angrier clicking.
After I have re-re-re-re-re-refreshed the page, the result is the same.
There you have it. A real behind-the-scenes look at the ordeal I have been dealing with for weeks.
Let me say, dear readers, that if Two Beans or Not Two Beans still has word verification, it isn't because I hate you and couldn't care less about rectifying the problem so you could all have instant commentfication. It is because Blogger likes to unnecessarily annoy me.
I apologize in advance if our blog still has comment word verification. Please believe me when I say that I am as equally frustrated about this as you are, if not even more so.
