Dratted Word Verification.

Is Blogger playing the fool again? I keep getting WV when I try to comment on some blogs. I've checked my blog (in Settings) to make sure WV is turned off, which it is. Why can't Blogger, Facebook etc just leave us alone?!

love Mags B x

I may be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that the blog that you are trying to leave comments on is the one that must have word verification turned off. It doesn't have anything to do with you who is leaving or wanting to leave the comments. If you are commenting, you might mention how much you hate that they have left the verification on and might not comment any longer on their blog if they don't remove it.

Testing, testing.

It could also be caused by making a lot of comments at one time. That's when I get it, during blog hops or if I'm way behind in my commenting and trying to play catch-up at one time. Try to space out your commenting and that will help. Best of luck to you!

No captcha here, but I was signed into Google. As I understand their new addition, if you are signed in you don't have to verify, but if you come from say a Wordpress account, or basically just don't have Google or Google + then it will make you verify everything. There were a lot of complaints on the Blogger forum when they changed it. I think it's to stop anonymous spammers commenting....... but setting up comment moderation on your blog prevents that. I would prefer to have the choice myself, not have Google dictate how my blogger settings work.

Hi Mags, I have checked my blog and WV is definitely switched off, I have never had it on, I think it is a problem with blogger, it appears on a lot of blogs I comment on but I just ignore it and it works OK!!!!
But it's definitely switched off on my blog...I checked, thanks.

Hi Mags I hope mine is back to normal now. I cleared everything, I don't have word verification on. I found when I did a lot of comments it turned ME into a Robot, so much so I stopped until the next day, when things got back to normal, UNTIL I did too many again LOL
Hope you are well
