Captcha?! On my blog?!?! *UpDaTE

So I just got an email from someone saying I have captcha on my blog!  Has anyone else come across this here?  And after I recently complained how much I hate seeing it on blogs too!!!

If it is up, I cannot figure out where so any tips would be appreciated.  I want to keep commenting as simple as possible .

Thanks!


*UPDATE*

Okay, so I did a bit of investigating and found this:
"The Blogger / Google login status, and the ability to post comments, is sensitive to both cookie and script filters.  Your readers may need to enable (stop filtering) "third party cookies", in their browser and on their computer.  The effects of the newly unavoidable CAPTCHA, and the Google "One account" login, requires third party cookies, even more than before."

As found in the help forums.  I Guess this is called 'recaptcha' and it was something that I have no control over that I can find.

So to my readers  that are getting this (about 1/4 it seems), you can check to see what is going on with your browser or bear with the evil recaptcha.  If I can figure something out on my end I will do what I can.  If anyone has more information I would love to know.  I am so, so sorry that this new hassle has popped up for some of you.  You should be able to browse sites how you want and I am irritated that we don't even have a say in it.  Plus, if I want robots posting on my blog, that should be MY choice, lol!


I appreciate everyone letting me know what they found when commenting here.  Thanks!!!!

  4. I have commented many times on your blog, and never once seen CAPTCHA. I don't think that it is anything on your end; it must be something with the person's browser or something like that? I don't know. But no problems on my end!

  8. I don't get the captcha, but I have noticed that if I do not enable third party scripts then the comment box does not appear, so in order to leave a comment using gogle I need to enable third party scripts.

  11. I didn't go through captcha to comment here. However, I have found if I have to log in to Google for a blog, I may have to use captcha, but not once I have logged in. If you have the option to comment through Twitter, I have never had to use captcha FYI.
