Book Blogger Hop: Verification Codes

Hosted by Coffee Addicted Writer
I decided to join a weekly hop for a bit.  This one is cool because you can post any day of the week.  That's right no pressure on getting your post up a specific day of the week.  Each week there will be a new topic submit by a blogger and everyone can join in with their answers.  Join us!   
This weeks Topic/Question
March 29th - April 4th: What are your thoughts on the verification codes? (submitted by Elizabeth)
GROSS!!
HATE IT!!!
CAPCTHA SUCKS!!!!
DON'T DO IT!!!!
TURN IT OFF!!!!!!! 
Wheww! No that I got that out, I think I can talk like a normal person now.  
Ok.
1.  Who can read that mess anyways?
The type is small and sometimes crossed out.  The one I hate is the fun house mirror font with half caps and half uncaps.  Really?  Common now.  It's like you want me to prove to you I am not a computer by reading a computer generated word verification.  And the audio version never works.

2.  Are you getting that much spam?
Are you? Then just hit delete to remove it or you the moderation pending option. That way you can check out the comment before it hits your blog. Go see Allison @Allison Can Read for details on how to exorcise this demon from your blog. Don't worry you don't need to call a priest.

3.  Did you know there other options?
There are so many plugins you can use that don't capctha everyone and they block spam like a champ.  Here are three that come to mind.
4.  Did you know I don't comment on your blog because of it?
Yep and trust me I am not the only one either. 

What are your feelings on Verification codes?
