I have had word verification for a while but had some ask me to take it away and do comment verification on my end. Actually I had both and only once did I ever have to reject a comment while using both. I took off the word verification last week and within 30 seconds, I had a spam comment. I thought, okay, I can just reject it. Ha!
Since that time, the spam has become worse and very suggestive and raunchy. I have decided to go back to Word verification. My other option is no comments at all, and I really don't get many, so it would be no big deal. I just don't like the gross comments that have nothing to do with my blogs.
So for the two or three that do leave comments, I am sorry for putting you thru another step. Until Blogger has a better way, it's all I can do.
And my gift to the ones who do this blog spamming is one of my dog's farts-in your face-at 3AM.
