After viewing this, all I could think was (1) I need an aspirin with a mojito chaser and, (2) Quite selfishly, I might add, and I still can't get decent broadband internet out at the corner of noplace and nowhere?
I typically don't share with you viral emails, but I got this one from a coworker and watched it because I knew I'd be quizzed on it at some point during the day. So I watched.
Which brings me to my next harangue. People, I am begging you, please consider removing Word Verification from your blogs. Maybe you don't realize that you have it on? Maybe you aren't stuck with the dismal, but expensive and limited internet we have in our lovely, pastoral setting. But please, for the love of all things bloggable, kill your word verification. It's not just that it slows your commenters down, it does, but sometimes we can't leave comments because the gibberish word jumble won't load. Last night I invented new curses and oaths as a result of a battle with word verification. Even The Spawn noted that I was crossing the line from a string of fucks, shits, hells and damns into the worst kind of off-color language they'd heard yet. I was cursing in French with a combination midwestern/southern accent that made light bulbs burst and paint peel from the walls.
I know some of you have to do comment modification because of stalkers, trolls, and commenters who throw fits about your other commenters (me), but I'm talking to all the rest of you who have word verification, knowingly or unknowingly, those who use it to cut down on the occasional spammer. Consider dumping it, please and thank you. Really, thank you.
(If you use Blogger, you can find the word verification under Settings, Comments, Word Verification.)
