Hey, Gavin...

Anyone else getting this over at Gavin's Blog, alternativemediaandmusings


I can't leave a comment because it never loads. I even tried typing in "Loading..." Nada. I've not experienced this on anyone else's blog.

For two posts, I've not been able to leave comments. So, Gavin if you read this, would you mind de-activating the Word Verification thingy. Really, how many bot crawls do we get anyway.

Go ahead, comment here...you won't be hindered by bureaucratic mumbo jumbo dumbo verifications.

I'm getting the same message. I don't use it because I haven't experienced any bots here, and I realize how much time it takes up. For those bloggers who use them - consider turning them off.

becoming---Well, at least it isn't just me. Thanks.

Same. I found a blog that I wanted to comment on yest. Same story. Tried typing 'Loading...' as well lol.

Moko---Inquiring minds run in packs. I dunno what that means. Yeah, I'm sitting there thinking, this thing is trying to fool me. It did.

Gavin said...

Gavin---couldn't think of any other way to communicate with you. Going to go over and try it now.

Et tu, Jaded?

Yeah, I've been seeing that as well. Thought it was my machine. It DOES keep the spammers out, though...

jadedj said...

YD---right about the spammers, but my blog is so undistinguished as to not even attract spammers. So I figure, what the fuck, I'd rather have bogus comments than no comments.

I haven't turned on CAPTCHA since I came to Blogger almost three years ago. I was a bit ticked because I was unable to leave a timely comment yesterday on a blog with word verification turned on. Today it's working fine on those blogs, but it's a pain in the ass, eh?

Judy said...

I fixed all 4 of my blogs here to turn off that captcha thingy. I don't care for it anyhoo.

jadedj said...

Doug---irritates me beyond reason!

Judy---Thanks. I'm on a Captcha crusade. Long live free comments!
