Periodically I go on a tear about how many people stop by this blog (100+ in the last day or so) and leave without so much as a backward glance. But a couple of people have now explained to me that it's the word verification issue that prevents them from commenting.
Here's the deal:
You type in a comment. If a red "X" appears where the word verification should be, then you just click on "Log In and Publish." At that point, the page will probably reappear, this time with an actual word verification that you can type.
I'm sorry about the word verification, but without it, I tend to get spam like "GET LAID HERE!" immediately following my most deeply religious and thoughtful posts.
If you can't think of a comment, here are some possiblities:
"The most beautifully photographed and scintillatingly brilliant piece I have ever seen."
"The most idiotic post I have ever read."
"You are a genius, girl."
"You stupid left-wing progressives are out to destroy both the Presbyterian Church and the world."
Hey, I'm flexible. Have a great day!
