I'm Not A Flipping Robot!

Just let me post my comment for once, will ya?

Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed that it's become even harder to prove you're not a robot?  It's true that it's recently been determined that I need glasses while working at the computer, but my gosh, I squint to try to get the letters just right and half the time the numbers aren't readable AT ALL!

I take my time, fix the letter that I think may be an "a", no...a "ci", no...definitely an "a".  (see above) Good grief!  It produces a little anxiety. I slowly enter each character one by one.  I double and triple check my work and carefully press the PUBLISH button while crossing all crossables.

The characters you've entered didn't match the word verification.  
Please try again.  

I can just hear her smug, calm voice as she gives me the news that I've failed yet again.  And I just KNOW she turns her head to the side and snickers at me a little bit.  

I want the power back!  I'm TAKING the power back!

In an effort to smack that smug, calm voice right in the mouth, I am REMOVING the Prove You're Not A Robot feature from this blog.  From now on, I will approve each comment before it's posted and I will determine whether you're a robot or not, and I will have the power and I will be very happy.

Now isn't that more cheerful?  So every time you comment and hit that publish button, please know that I send you lots of happy, carefree energy full of rainbows and unicorns.

And donuts.  

Because they're yummy.


  1. LMAO!!!! I needed this this morning! I think I need to take it off my blog too, it's a PITA!!! Good luck! :) :) :) :)

  2. I totally hate that stupid thing! It drives me nust, because every word or letter looks to me like it can be made into at least one other letter/word... I cringe when I hit the submit button...

    Can I have the sprinkley donut!?

  3. Are they even real words?" Or just random letters smushed together? I think a robot would know what the letters are and a person wouldn't. Maybe you are supposed to fail to prove you are human :)

  4. I took that off my blog ages ago and I can't stand when leaving comments on other people's blogs and have to deal with that shit. Lol. Im SO glad you said something. Hope this gets the word out!

  5. The problem's plain to see,
    Too much technology,
    Machines to save our lives,
    Machines de-humanize,

    The time has come at last,
    To throw away this mask,
    Now everyone can see,
    My true identity
    I'm Kilroy! KILROY!

  7. Haha!
    It's like those standardized tests that punish kids that are overly analytical because they find a reason it's not totally correct. I also think way too hard trying to make a pattern out of their mush. That's why I hardly comment anymore - it has nothing to do with the burping, eating, pooing 4 month in my lap! ;)
