Up Yours Word Verification


This word verification I got on A Dingo Ate My Baby's blog really threw me. I just started a new prescription today and I thought, "Damn, that Wellbutrin is some harsh shit. Cause I see trails and floaty letters." Then I realized it was just my nemesis, word verification. Grrrr.

Nothing makes you feel young and fresh like having to get all squinty eyed at your computer screen. So far Mom o Matic hasn't been hit too hard with Spamalot links so I'm letting the comments fly freestyle. But I know it's just a matter of time before "You too can earn money from a home based business" appears and I have to dance with the devil.

Did you say you wanted to start a home based business? Well, you can make $6,000 per week and gain fulfillment right from your very own home. Get your creative juices flowing by stuffing envelopes!

Hopefully you're amused Lotta, otherwise I lose my commenting priveledges. My blog has been spammed a couple of times and it's super annoying.

Lotta said...

Katie - I am not amused. You are banned young lady. Now march. Kidding. I'll just pretend that once I've been spammed I will have truly "arrived" in the blog world. Snort.

I still wonder why I use it. You and a few others are the only ones who read me anyway... hee hee..the second I turn it off...I know I'll get zapped.

I haven't been spammed on my current blog, but did on my previous blog - a lot. It sucks.

But, I agree. Word verification is a pain in the ass. I remember once on the Ticketmaster site I had to go through 4 tries and still didn't get it right. It was at that point that I decided Ticketmaster *IS* the evil empire and I didn't want to go see Coldplay anyway.

Very amusing, as well.

I used to get porn spam. YEP...they would leave lovely trackbacks and comments like "Large penis boobies girls naked go to....". I have Typepad and had to put the ol' "must approve comments before posting" thang and also security on trackbacks. It was some pretty sick stuff really....

Hey! I am on Wellbutrin too!

Not harsh enough IMO.

And yes....fuck the word thing....

Makes me feel old and feeble every single time.

At least you got in. Last time I tried to comment it told me that she was only hearing from friends and family and then it kicked me in the crotch.

Lotta: Don't you get the secret alien messages though? My word verification tells me things like: Your mission for the day is... You must vote for... Your blog contains too many f-words... Today is the day to wear red panties.

Yeah.

that is so funny because sometiems I cant read the word verification and just mis-type it so I can get another one that is hopefully easier to read! (or shorter)

Nat from A Dingo Ate My Baby said...

First of all, Jenny, you lying toe-rag, it did not kick you in the crotch!

Guys, I don't even know if I have any option on the word verification thing--it's just always been there. Although reading about being spammed is horrible, so I guess the word verification has to stay. Even when I comment on my own blog, I have to do it. And yes, I feel old and blind every time.

Oh, and Lotta, I looked for different shoes like the ones you suggested, and didn't see any I loved, but I DID get a really cute wrap and some jewelry and some underwear that sucks in my belly. Aaahhhh!!

Jenny said...

It kicked me in the crotch and then it's owner called me a lying toe-rag. I don't even know what that is but it sounds bad.

Dangerous territory, that blog.

Oh, The Joys said...

Totally agree - it will make me go blind I am certain!
