The Hateful Captcha!!

I do know know why this is happening. I have reported it to Blogger. Hopefully it will be fixed soon. I do not have captcha activated on my blog. Yet, it seems to be appearing. I am also seeing it on others blogs that I read. Those blogs that didn't have it before. (For instance Kwizgiver, yours) They say they are working on it. If you know how to fix it let me know.....

  1. I hope that it's not something they can't solve! There is the check off to HAVE it, maybe that got scotched.

    1. I have checked it and unchecked it and apparently it doesn't go away. I can't see it so I don't know it is there.

  2. Hey Paula
    I noticed the same thing. I do moderate my comments so having the Captchas is unnecessary. I don't have that box checked but last week I noticed I have to input some number to comment on my own blog. Hopefully this goes away soon.

  4. I noticed it on a lot of blogs; but its not too bad because it is just numbers and I found no matter what number I put in, it works. It must be random on your blog or they fixed it because I don't have to do a captcha now.

  5. Use embedded comments and for now that should resolve it.

  7. Elephant's Child (http://myjustsostory.blogspot.com/) sent the following to me about that:

    "It seems to be a blogger glitch and a lot of blogs are infected. Those that aren’t all have the ‘embedded’ comments option – which might be worth trying for you."

    I haven't tried it yet because I've been busy, not to mention sick.

    1. My comments are already embedded. Took me forever to find it but I finally did. And they are embedded

  8. I didn't realize this at first! Then, this morning every time I went to leave a comment and complete the verification box, I'd get booted out of Blogland and asked to sign back in.
    Thank goodness, yours doesn't seem to have the cyber Doberman enabled!

  9. Yup! That's the Captcha I was talking about. Some are easy, lie a three-digit number, but most are two words and one is harder to read than the other. Glad you are working on it from your end. Thanks for telling me.

I love to hear what you might think. Leave me a comment. I guarantee though that I will delete your comment if you are just here to cause trouble. So tread lightly!
