Aloha Friday -Three Questions


Some time back I read,on a blog I visited, that they did not like all the Word/Number Verifications. They didn't even like the log in or sign up one. All these are done to keep the spammers from their blogs.
so my Questions are:

1. Do you use a spam guard of some type in the comment section?
2. Do you like them or not?
3. Which one are not your favorite?


I disable mine for awhile.Having to approve the comments was a bit too much. So now it is back on. I disabled it for today so you can answer faster. Just in case you do not like them.

11 comments:

  1. I'm approving comments cause it makes sure that i read all the comments. I don't like to write these confirmation words.

  2. I approve all comments. I cannot stand word verification, it is not only annoying, but takes up time.

  3. I don't use a confirmation but all comments are mailed to me, so if spam happens, I delete fairly quickly after it happens.

    If you're not online a lot, it's possible people are seeing no comments and leaving rather than being the first commenter when in reality you might already have comments.

  4. I use disqus so no captcha on my blog. I hate the kind that pop up after you have hit submit on your message. So annoying.

  5. I don't use any spam guard.....I don't have enough traffic to warrent it and i hate how long it takes to post a comment when I have to wait for the page to load THEN a word pops up....those are just annoying :)

  6. I used to require that a commenter be approved the first time they left a comment, and they were good after that, but my brother used a different name every time he wrote (trying to be witty, he'd make it relevant to the post) - and I got tired of approving his comments. I don't have enough readers for spam to be much of a problem, and WordPress automatically has a spam filter. I think it's called Akismet.

  7. I dont like having to type in word verifications to leave comments, there annoying.

  8. I don't and I don't approve before hand. I can always go back and delete if needed. The word verification is a pain!
