why don't (can't?) you turn the word verification on?
I used to have it on, for all my blogs, but I hate having to type them (and sometimes, it takes me a few tries) and I don't want to have to subject folks to that here. Except for when I'm away from a computer/internet connection, I approve comments fairly quickly. Moderation seems less annoying than typing the capcha letters, at least to me. :)
ah fair enough. as i've understood it, all these word verififications need to be is pictures, so the designers could produce plain text in a picture file. in which case i have no idea why they go for the wobbly writing which can be, as you say, very hard to read.
I don't understand it, either. And sometimes, the letters are very clear/easy to read, and sometimes, not, with the letters wavy or bunched together. I have troubles with i and l a lot.
