Samantha over at ABC Christmas Challenge has some Candy to give away for those turning off your Word Verification, there are a few rules to follow to be in with a chance of winning, but they are easy peasy, just click on the highlighted name or banner and follow them. I've already turned mine off and as a Member of a Design Team myself I find it so frustrating when commenting on the lovely creations entered that it takes twice as long because of the dreaded Word Verification.
Some challenge blogs are no longer commenting because of the time factor involved. So come on Guys n Gals. TURN IT OFF.
