Remove Word Verification in Blogger

I love leaving comments on everyone’s blogs. Unfortunately, I have extremely slow internet and when I have to answer one of those “word verifications” it takes up so much more time. I realize those are there to prevent spam. I’m not sure if blogger has something like WordPress does, but in WordPress you can download a widget called “Akismet Stats” that helps to prevent spam. I love it! Plus, than my readers aren’t required to do the word verification. So I am asking begging you to PLEASE turn off your word verification. Save everyone so much time :O)

Here is how to do it in Blogger:
1. Go to your Dashboard and click on “Settings”.

2. Next click on “Comments”.

3. Scroll down until you see “Show word verification for comments?” and click “No”.

It’s that easy!!

      Awesome! Thanks Jill!!

    I had mine turned off at the request of Jill and Ashley for two weeks and I just can’t do it. So sorry, but the spam was driving me nuts. I have tried to turn it off 3 times now, but each time I get anywhere from 2 to 5 spam comments that are actually posted. A few get filtered out, but the ones that don’t really bug the crap out of me.

    I feel bad, but I won’t be offended if you don’t comment on my posts.

      Just delete them – it will stop. I used to get them but they dwindle to nothing. :-)

    OK, I’m trying it…for YOU, Courtney ;-) You should get WiMax (new fast internet our neighborhood gets) when you get back. Speaking of which, it is really lame here without you and Tracy.

    I just took mine off and haven’t had any trouble. Yet.

  • February 1, 2011 at 2:37 PM

    Ok… I did it just for you :) I turned on comment moderation though.. at least that way it will be easy to delete spam before it’s published.

    I need all the help I can get! Thank you!

  • There are some blogs that I just click away from because of all the steps it takes to leave a comment.

    For some reason, Blogger blogs make me click okay 3 or 4 times. The only people I’ll stick it out with are bloggers I really enjoy. I would love to get that fixed.
