“Hey, leave a comment to win!” Yeah, I read that all the time. Then when I try to leave a comment, there are so many hoops to jump through I give up.
Has that ever happened to you? How do you feel about blogs and sites that beg for comments but to leave one, you have to register with the blog, set up an account, be logged into Google or Yahoo, type in letters and numbers so twisted and convoluted it takes three tries to get them right, and then, THEN, you can type in the comment?
Or worse, you have thoughtfully typed in your comment, and then have to go through all this rigmarole only to find that you have to retype your comment again. Now, what was it I said???
OK, I admit there are a lot of spammers out there and a high profile blog might get hit with some. But really, is there that much of a problem? I’ve had this blog up for 1 1/2 years and had one comment that I thought was questionable. So I deleted it. Problem solved.
So how do you feel about having to log in or jump through other hoops to leave a comment? (You don’t have to do that here to leave one!)
If you have those kinds of security measures on your own blog, why? Have you had problems? I’d like to hear about it. Please leave a comment! Here, it really is easy to do.
