Blogging tips: stop the Captchas !

If you still have those annoying little captchas on your blog, one of the best blogging tips I feel like giving you is this one...stop the captchas !.
A CAPTCHA - as most of you surely know already - shows a random string usually in image format which the user has to type to submit a form. This is a simple problem for (seeing) humans, but a very hard problem for computers, so captchas are used to prevent SPAM, that's why we are often asked to prove we're human (LOL).
We happen to find captchas very often when we comment on the other blogs, and lately they've started to be even longer and harder to read, making it very difficult and slow to post comments. The problem is getting VERY annoying.
I wanna encourage all of you once again to STOP the Captchas from your blogs now, it's easy and it will increase your comments and surely be a kind thought for your readers !.
To do that, if you have a Blogger blog, just tur off the word verification under comments setting in your dashboard !. I did it a long time ago and I can tell you spam is not a problem at all, so go on and do it !. I am here for advice if you need to find out how to remove captchas !.
Feel free to put the image I created above on your blog to let everyone know you removed the captchas from your blog, I made a small one and will link to this post to encourage more and more bloggers to take those evil Captchas down ! Here's the code:

...and remember...share the word...stop the captchas !!!

Se avete ancora i fastidiosissimi captchas sul vostro blog, uno dei migliori suggerimenti per il blog che posso darvi è questo: fermate i Captchas !.
Un Captcha è - come la maggior parte di voi già sa perfettamente - una serie di parole e/o numeri messi a caso, in formato immagine, che devono essere ricopiati quando si compila un form, al fine di evitare lo spam, in quanto per i computer non è affatto semplice leggerli (proprio per questo spesso ci viene chiesto di dimostrare che siamo umani !).
Incontriamo i captchas molto spesso quando commentiamo altri blog e, ultimamente, sono diventati ancora più lunghi e difficili da leggere, rendendo veramente lenta e difficile il postare dei commenti. Il problema è diventato veramente fastidioso.
Vorrei incoraggiarvi ancora una volta a togliere i Captchas dai vostri blog adesso, è facile e oltre ad essere un gesto gentile per i vostri commentatori, sarà utile a incoraggiare i commentatori pigri che rinunciano pur di non scrivere i captchas !.
Per farlo, se avete un blog su Blogger, basta che nella bacheca decidete di togliere la spunta a "verifica parole nei commenti", io l'ho fatto da molto tempo e lo spam non è affatto un problema. Se non riuscite a farlo e avete problemi potete chiedere aiuto nei commenti !.
Se vi piace, potete inserire l'immagine che ho creato sopra per dire a tutti che il vostro blog è libero dai captchas, basta copiare e incollare il codice html che trovate sopra nella finestrella per farlo apparire nella vostra pagina !. E ricordate...diffondete il verbo...fermate i captchas !.

  1. totally agree this! it's just so annoying.. especially when i saw "please prove you aren't a robot".. just arrgh! :D

  2. agreed! soo annoying!
    they should post this on the main blogging page for everyone to be aware of!


  3. Absolutely agree with that post!I hate these captchas and I am always sooo annoyed by them,if I leave a comment somewhere.

  4. That´s why I use disqus for comments ;)

  5. ahahah brava! sono d'accordo con te!

  6. I did not even know I had it turned on till now! Thank you so much for doing this! :)


  7. Agreed - my blod is captcha free :)


  8. I agree captcha is annoying. My blog doesn´t use it.

  9. gracias por la información!!!

  10. Io sono completamente d'accordo con te, ma sai cosa? di recente blogger ha rimesso i captchas a tutti. Io non me n'ero assolutamente accorta, quindi li ho lasciati per sbaglio attivati. Li avevo tolti moolto tempo fa e credevo di essere a posto! Che nervi...

  11. SO glad you did this! i agree 100%! i never had those stupid captcha! plus it makes it even harder to comment when on your cell!

  12. I completely agree! And they have been harder to read lately! I know spam is annoying too, but I believe most blogs should have a spam filter to take care of it! Thank you for doing this post, I will encourage others to stop this as well so we can have more interactive blogging community!

  13. i totally agree with you! thanks for sharing!

    xoxo, andie

  14. I turned mine off about a month ago due to a previous suggestion that you made and I'm glad I did. Those letters really are hard to read and sometimes it takes me as many as three times to get the letters right. UGH! Thanks for posting about this! Oh, and I don't get spam.

  15. it was one of the first things i did when i opened my blog. i do really hate them,
    I mean, people already have a busy life , and even visiting and commenting somebody's blog requires time, why do you want to make them lose even more time to try to understand captchas?

    The image you created is really nice!


  16. I am soooo glad you have spoken! I hate captchas and they definitely discourage ppl from commenting!

  17. Haha indeed. My God! It is so annoying. I hope I dont have that on my blog.


  18. Couldn't agree more with you, love, I hate the stupid verification. If one wants to prevent spam, allowing only registered users or moderating will do. :) xoxo ♥

  19. Guarda Vale, sono le 23 e 37, io ho appena finito di ricommentare chi mi ha commentato e ci ho messo la bellezza di 4 ore tutto per via dei captcha codes, stavo pensando di scrivere addirittura nei post che non ricommento chi mette i codici di verifica perchè non se ne può più!!!

  25. Concordo assolutamente!!!Infatti io l'ho tolto già da un pò!!Kiss

  26. I TOTALLY agree with you so much about this Vale. I am so surprised that like 90% of bloggers have it because it would save us all so much time if they were gone. There are so many times I write a comment and then the capcha keeps messing up. Great tips, I just tweeted this post because I think it's SO important
