Things I hate: blogger captchas
November 15, 2012Posted by on
For everyone and anyone who blogs via Blogger platform and wonders why I don’t comment, it’s because Blogger hates me.
I’m trying to comment on a post as I type this. It’s an owned website which uses the Blogger (google owned) interface for their blog. I’m going to give up. I really want to leave this comment so I am persevering.
Earlier I tried on the same site and the captcha wasn’t working. Which is what is usually the problem.
Tonight the problem is my wordpress address. Apparently it cannot be verified.
Half the time I can’t read the image that google/Blogger provides me for the captcha so I’m guess. And when I am sure of it, it just tells me I’ve typed it in wrong.
Oh it finally worked, but it’s being held for approval. Which I think happened two or three times, but i missed it.
Blogger make your captchas REAL words so we can figure out what it is we are supposed to type out. Or anyone using blogger, change to WordPress, please. (Which, said, I still use blogger for my smut stuff, but I don’t expect much commenting).
** the blog post in question is this: http://www.thealphaparent.com/2012/11/the-laziness-conundrum.html
to which I need to reply this:
It is too easy and often pushed on tired new moms to just “give baby a bottle”. Uninformed doctors, nurses, partners, friends and family push the issue on struggling moms. I don’t think the blame is solely on the mom. (It amazes me how few people search out knowledge for any topic). The whole culture surrounding babies needs to change.
Sure the post is blunt and judgemental. Judgment and/or criticism isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It’s like watching a friend make a bad choice repeatedly and staying silent or worse, supporting her choice to ram her life into a brick wall. Maybe she needs some blunt truth.
Maybe we don’t need to work so hard not to offend people. It is hard to take a hard stance
