I long ago disabled the word verification feature on my blog. Since then I've only had maybe 5 or 6 spam comments, so I leave it off to make it easier for any commenters to do so on my blogs.
I understand that many others haven't been so lucky. They have to keep the word verification on for their comments or the spam engines will bury them in stupid business comments.
Anyway, I was at Miss Norma's blog, Collecting My Thoughts (a favorite of mine) and went to leave a comment.
What was the security word I had to type in to leave the comment?
It kinda creeped me out. I felt as if the random letter generator they use somehow saw into my soul.
