((Toledo, OH) I am removing the annoying word verification tool from the comments section. I have been spam-free for several months on this blog, and I originally added the feature to weed out unwanted spam.

If the spammers return en masse, I may re-install word verification.

What about you? Do you find this feature useful, or a cumbersome annoyance?

Absolutely hate the word verify. Thatks for yanking it.

Well then, allow me to post the first erectile dysfunction ad here...

We should start a pool to see how soon you'll turn it back on.

Thanks for removing it....

Personally I never found the Word Verification feature very annoying.

I hated it, some of the script was hard for me to do and I'd end up typing it wrong.

I still get spam once in a while but I just delete the little bastards.

It was a bit annoying, but it's your business. Hopefully, you won't need to re-engage it.

I got a bit of a surprise the other night after I posted on my own blog and word verification suddenly came up. Turned out some of my postings triggered a "spam blog alert", but I sent a message and was able to get my blog "whitelisted".

I don't permit anonymous comments on my blog, but I don't moderate comments and I don't want to put respondents through word verification.

Yes, I hate the word verification feature, especially when I have to use it on my own blogs.

I hated the word verification, especially when the letters weren't always clear and I'd have to re-type the sequence (different sequence each time) just to get through.

I really hope you stay spam-free!
