I would like your opinions please! About five days ago I removed "Captcha" (that thing that makes you type in those crazy letters before it will post your comment) from the process of commenting on posts here at What DID We Do All Day. I did so because I know firsthand that it can be kind of annoying to fill that out and I wanted to simplify the process for you.
In the past five days since I removed Captcha I have received 50 robotic spam messages. Blogger catches them nicely and places them in a spam folder so YOU don't have to see them in the comment section. However, I have Blogger set to notify me whenever I receive a comment so that I don't miss them. This is especially important because I frequently get comments and questions on very old posts. Blogger sends the e-mail notification BEFORE they move the comment to spam so I am being notified of each and every spam comment.
It is depressing, because each and every time I get all excited like it's my birthday, "Oh! Yippee! I have a comment!" only to open it and find "blog sexy" followed by an ominous link.
As far as I know, there is no way to ask blogger to only send the "good comments" (I think they have changed something lately, I didn't used to get spam notifications. I used to check my Blogger spam folder every week or so to make sure no one got stuck in there. It used to be pretty much empty.). So, my question for you is...how annoying is Captcha for you? Are there many of you out there who won't or can't comment if Captcha is turned on? It's turned OFF right now, so this is your chance to let me know!
