Why do I have to "prove that I'm not a robot"? Isn't it a little early for that--by at least a century or so? But the real reason I hate filling in the hidden words is that I'm afraid I will get them wrong--and about a third of the time I do. There are few tasks of everyday life better calculated to uncover my latent dyslexia. I've tried clicking the sound verifier instead--that's worse. The magic words are so deeply buried under a cacophony of annoying noises that it calls to mind trying to decipher "I buried Paul" in the fade-out of "Strawberry Fields Forever." Frankly, I have to think hard about whether it's worth all the tsuris to comment at all. I'm not a robot. I wish Blogspot would take my word for it.
