AM I A ROBOT?
Blogger's new comment verification, the new one, put on all of our blogs without our knowledge, the one designed to figure out who is a robot and who is a real person, is very difficult to make work. It is so difficult and annoying it has me questioning whether I am a real person or whether I actually am a robot.
I can't handle such a metaphysical line of thought when I am blogging, so I am urging all bloggers to do yourselves and your readers (and this sad robot) a favor and turn off your comment word verification.
I'll bet most of you didn't even know you had it on your blog. I didn't know. Try leaving yourself a comment and see whether or not it comes up. Blogger should be a free and easy conversation among like-minded individuals, not a hassle where you have to prove who you are all the time and end up questioning your very existance. That's what dealing with government offices is for.
How do you do it? Well head on over to J. A. Bennet's blog and he will tell you how.
I've been here and there. I've drawn a lot of pictures. I've written a bit, too. I'm not good at this self-promotion thing. Look, you want to know about me? just visit these websites. Okay?
