From Mrs. Marine and the Tiny Troops: Blogging Tips: Comment Forms - Say NO to CAPTCHA: "First off, Please, I'm begging you all, turn off Captcha!!! Disable Captcha for blog comments!!

... unless your having problems with spam and you think a computer is generating the spam, then what do you need captcha for? Want a second opinion? Click Here!
It's really annoying when I fill out the log-in info, click "Post Comment", I assume I'm done at this point, but NO the form refreshes and then the Captcha shows up, its a little easier when its at least there to begin with...."

I can't agree with this more. It's so annoying when I go to submit a comment on a blog, think I'm done, then later realize there is a pop up comment box waiting for me to enter a tangle of often illegible letters. If you are a blogger and do have a problem with spam, I urge you to moderate your comments, not make it harder for fans to interact with you and your blog.

I'm joining up with bloggers saying "NO" to Captcha! 


  1. They're getting harder as the bots get better.... I fail many times and have to refresh and get a new "puzzle"

  2. I think they're so silly and highly annoying. I could probably count on one hand how many times I've have spam comments on my blog. I'm with you; turn it off!
