I finally took the time to ditch the Evil Word Verification step from the comment process. Having spent far too many hours blog-hopping on my kootoyoo-palooza nights, I figured I'd start a grassroots movement to contribute to the general sanity of the blogging community. Take the leap, people: Click on customize in the upper right corner of your Blogger Dashboard. Then click the settings tab, and scroll down to the word verification step. Turn those suckers OFF and make your commenters sigh with relief! Think of it as a random act of kindness, and pay it forward.
