Policing my own spam

It's gone, all cheer !!! That blasted new fangled word verification wostit thingymabob which no humans can read, never mind a spamming computer. Comment all you like, I will continue to dump the spam manually by clicking the spam button. Easy peasy.

  1. Thank you so much Ilona! Feel I want to hug you, that stuff is so difficult to see. I suspect that you won't get much spam anyway.

  14. Have you tried the audio verification. I couldn't hear that one properly either. This person with an American accent recited umpteen words with crackles in the background. By the time I'd memorized the first 3 I'd misheard the next ones. Der!
