Mad Blogger Rant & Salute 2012
Now I'm normally quite a mild mannered sort of chap, just ask Fran!!.........BUT
Is anyone else getting pi$$ed off with the new captcha word verification.
The old version was bad enough, but the new "Please prove you're not a Robot", is really getting on my tits!!!!
"I am not a Robot I am a free man!!!!!!"
I'm 43 and wear glasses, and sit quite close the my computer and still can't read the bloody words, here's one I had earlier............ any ideas???
Obviously researches. with a full stop!! is very clear, but what the hell is the next, can I call it a word???? r, π, skull, backwards B and an S with a funny line at the bottom???
Now I know Blogger have put it there for a reason, to stop spam, but for Gods sake, give us the bloody chance to read it, so we can type it in!!!!!!
So I'll plead with you fellow bloggers and shout, forget the spam, you can always delete it, but please "Turn the effin thing OFF!!!"
Several blogs that I comment on quite regularly have this stupid thing on still, I've tried to comment, but after getting the captcha wrong a few times I've given up, either that or smash the keyboard up!!!
Now I've got that off my chest..................
Unfortunately, The Rejects will not now be appearing at Salute (massive blogger groan). As some of you may have already known we were due to take part in Paul Darnell's WW2 skirmish game, but he's had to cancel. Gotta admit myself and Fran are quite gutted about this, we had planned to meet a few of you at the game table, but alas its not to be :0(
However myself, Fran and the rest of the Rejects are still going to the show to spend our hard earned (yawn) dosh, we're also meeting two Canadian bloggers Curt and Dallas for a beer at a pub near Salute, then the next day they're both visiting Reject HQ for an ACW game. Looks like its gonna be a great weekend!!!
