Let's see how this works

I'm gonna TRY accepting comments without word-verification.
Four reasons:
1) Word verification can be a pain-in-the-ass when it gives ya a big long string of weirdo letters like qjqjxzxvvwz.
2) Sometimes I type them in, re-check them to be positive, and it still tells me I've got the wrong word, so I have to start all over again.
3) Sometimes halfway through typing my comment, the page spontaneously reloads, giving a different word-verification
thingy-- and erasing my comment before I had a chance to post it.
4) Sometimes it doesn't even SHOW a word-verification box at all. There's the space where I'm supposed to type in the letters, but there aren't any letters above it. Just blankness.
So, in a fit of annoyance, I turned the blasted thing off for awhile. We'll see how it goes. If I start getting spam or junk ads or stuff like that, I'll bring back the verification.
Till then, type freely, live free, and prosper.
