I’m starting to feel like the word verification component of commenting on blogs is no longer just to verify that you’re not a robot.
It’s become an IQ test, endurance test (some are small novels), vision test, and a lovetap/bitchslap to the face saying: “Y’all should have listened in first grade D’Nealian class, because this is how we make our lower case d’s around here.”
When they’re really difficult verifications I usually hover my mouse over the “publish your comment” button nervously, considering the option of just Xing out of the page all together so I won’t have to face the word verification rejection (just kidding, but I do hover nervously).
Tell me how many of you were able to verify this upon first glance? Really?
