Sorry for the inconvenience, but I had to turn on comment word verification to keep my blog from getting spammed with comments like this one (fake comment at bottom of page). It seems that badly programmed bots are adding comments to people's blogs, trying to direct readers to the site they are marketing.
Blogger prevents that with a method called "word verification". Basically when you enter a comment, they shows you a word which is shown as image, so a bot can't read it. You need to type that word in the verification box before sending your comment.
