I like to visit as many of you as I can and leaving a comment is a polite, friendly and enjoyable thing to do.
I am not a robot, and I don't think of myself as being stupid either, but sometimes it takes me 2, 3 even more tries to get it right; too often recently I have given up and moved on to the next blog. Life is just too short!
You have a choice of having any new comments emailed to your computer, so you can always go to your blog and press the bin sign under the comment to delete it, if it is a comment you don't like. Or you can choose to "moderate" all comments before they appear on your blog.
I know that more and more bloggers feel like I do, some don't comment at all on blogs with word verification. Just think how many friends (or potential friends) you are loosing. I don't have word verification on my blog and to date I have not received any unwelcome comments. May be a spam email now and then, which I just don't open and delete.
So, please consider changing your blog setting and say NO to word verification. If you don't know how to do this: go to your "settings", choose "posts and comments" and NO in "show word verification?".
While I am on the subject of comments, I really like to answer directly all your comments left on my blog, because I value very much your visits and your friendship.
However, too many of you are still "no reply-comment blogger", which makes it impossible to send you a personal answer. To change this, you need to add your email address to your profile. I understand that some of you are reluctant to do this, but just think how much harder you are making it for anyone to have a friendly relationship with you, which is a shame.
