You, Robot--word verification
Overnight, seemingly, Google's word verification suddenly changed. I used to like the old Google word formations. They were amusing, and always made me realize that the English language had a lot of room for expansion. The last word I noted was 'fadrow', which I thought would be great for our bestseller table.
All that has changed, though. Now you have to type in some boring normal word and then some weird word that is partially obscured by some sort of black disc or something. I don't have big eyesight issues, but even I struggle with the blurry words presented here.
The new look says, "Please prove that you are not a robot."
Frankly, I don't mind if you're a robot. If you can enter into the general conversation of the blog, not try to sell something to the readers here (robot authors, you are excluded from this clause), and be polite to others, you're welcome, more than welcome to comment. If not, you better go back to the factory for reprogramming because sure as shooting, I will delete you.
Word verification has fallen by the wayside here, at least for now. Humans, you better be on your best behavior too...
