Word verification (IF)

This is another peeve I have at the moment, the word verifications on blogs.

After writing a very satisfactory comment, filled with bonhomie and good vibes towards all mankind, one is assualted with 'word verifications'.

In order to release one's comment out into cyber space, one is forced to read these ridiculously minute, cramped together, higgledy-piggeldy series of letters and then re-produce them.

Some of them have lines drawn through them, or dots surrounding them, and black letters on black backgrounds; some are in different colours; most have i and j beside each other, v and u together, not to mention q and p.

I understand the necessity for them, of course I do, but they make me growl!
