I've had a few comments over the years about the difficulty of word verification, especially with the latest changes.
I've found by accident that you only need to type in the word......and if I can't read one, I just click to get a new one until I find one I can read!
I thought of removing it, but 1. I'm wary.....and 2. I can't find the place to change it!!!
So for now, it stays....and just leave a pebble in the pool if you don't comment...((o))
(thanks to Zhoen for the inspiration) it is nice to see where you are all from.
