Wait! Is That A Robot I See?!

So, strangely enough I’m sitting here watching Dr. Who (and the dialects, lol) and I wanted to reply with a thank-you to those of you who commented on my Christmas card post.  Imagine my surprise when I noticed the “Please Prove You’re Not A Robot" prompt glaring me in the face.  Now, I dislike word verification as much as the next guy so I need you to know that it wasn’t me who added that little tidbit to my blog.  After some investigation I discovered that Google has indeed come up with this “great” little function to “help” weed out spam and there is no way for me to turn it off.  I apologize for the inconvenience.  >_<

If you are a member of blogger or have another Open ID account, I do believe you can bypass this captcha box and just go ahead publish your comment but I haven’t tested that theory yet.  I’ll update this post if I find out differently.

For now, I do apologize for this annoying addition that Google has so kindly provided us with.

UPDATE:  As long as you are using an Open ID or Google account you can just overlook the Robot Prompt and scroll down to publish your comment.

Sharon, it is so good to hear from you and wandered if you still wanted to do a Friday Freebie for Free Digital Stamps. I hope everyone in your family is doing well. Love your Christmas cards. Have missed you.. ~Josie
