Blogger Word Verification – A New Feature ;)

Warning - unlike my usual posts this one contains rude words, no matter how misspelled. If you object, then please move swiftly on...

Bob T Bear (esq.) is currently having a Word Verification competition as it seems that a context sensitive feature is in random beta test in Blogger at the moment. Bob has had Arsul in response to the quality of his typing. As he says so eloquently:

I try me best! But wiv ownly pors to type wiv it aint always eezy! Onnistly! Wat a cheek!

Yesterday, when replying to a couple of Comments re my losing a key posting I want to link to, I received the extremely rude opinion below on my Save as Favourite skills:
Well! I trust Blogger will amend this feature to provide more constructive criticism before implementing it on a wider, more permanent basis…

  2. I think this is a secret Rorshacht test. Makes me glad I've left the word verification on my blog.

  8. Jodi - always glad to oblige. I see from your blog that spring is at last getting to Nova Scotia, albeit oh so slowly.

    MMD - I think you're right and I fail it regularly ;)

    Louise - let me know what you find!

    Joy - see what fun you're missing now you've switched WV OFF?!

    Katie - that's a good one, I like it!

    Bob - I quite understand, there's not been that much chance to build snowbears this year has there? I'm not sure bears should know such language though! Hehehehehe. I've also had mtztso (japanese gloves?) and ndugwc (a timely warning not to did up the loo?) since. I'm seeing words in nearly all my WV, at the moment ;)

    dnd - perhaps you need to join the competition, then like me you'll see words everywhere. Or perhaps this 'feature's' not been implemented in France yet? Know what you mean about the number of attempts needed though, the italics ones are particularly pesky!
