Word Verification

I'm sorry. I just can't take it anymore!

As I was reading through blogs a few weeks ago, I saw several posts about blog pet peeves. The one that topped almost everyone's list was having word verification on comments. I checked my blog to see if mine had that. Sure enough, it did! So I changed the settings and took it off.

Well, today I reinstated the word verification on my blog because I've learned MY top blog pet peeve! Opening up e-mail and seeing a number of anonymous comments that link to buying term papers, overseas stocks, adult toys,videos and medications, etc. Granted many of these went to my blog spam and didn't actually get published, but quite a few of them slipped through. I've deleted more comments in the last few weeks than I think I have on the whole blog!

So I'm sorry, I'll be annoying many of you by keeping the word verification active, but I just really don't want to continue deleting comments that I don't deem appropriate for this blog's purpose.

Hi! I came across your blog and have enjoyed reading some past posts. I look forward to spending some time looking back further tomorrow! I am curious about what type of classroom model you teach in. I have been in an integrated co-teach but am moving into a multi-age classroom next year and am looking to read about experiences in a multi-age room.

Oh- and don't blame you on the word verifier!

Thank you for explaining the reasoning behind the word verify-er. I am in an educational technology class, and one of the main projects we are doing is creating and maintaining a blog, as well as finding others to comment one. I was really starting to get annoyed with that word verify- er thing, but now that I know it's purpose, I will just have to deal with it.
