It's More Difficult,

I know, to post comments with the 'captcha' on, but the spam is clogging up my inbox.
Personally, I hate it when commenting on other blogs; the 'word' is sometimes so cryptic it takes me four or five tries to get it right.  Love those 'improvements'.

So, it's back on.
Sorry 'bout that.

PS- Are there any alternatives?

I have not found any alternatives to using it. As soon as I shut it off, my blog is inundated with spam comments. I too sometimes have to hit the refresh icon several times before I can read what is the secret code. It is a pain to leave a comment but I think less of one for the commenter than for the blogger should the blogger decide to go without the captcha and then get swamped with spam.

All the best,
Glenn B

It sucks. Sadly, for people using Blogger it seems to be the only option.

Carry on.

Some blogs have a captcha that is a math problem (8-7=_). Others use a word problem (What is the month after June?____). I'm assuming they work okay as the peopel have been using them for years.

All these are done in normal text, so it is easy and straighforward. HOwever, I don't know if any of them are available for use with Blogger.
