I have just changed my settings to only allow comments with word verification. This is due to a high volume of spam recently. Although I love comments, and get excited when just 1 person comments on one of my posts, it is so annoying to get these comments that have nothing to do with my post. I was always annoyed when I had a word verification to comment on other blog posts, but now I must apologize to you, and I now GET it! Sorry people, but word verification is sometimes a good thing.
