Here’s a step-by-step run down of what happens to me when I read some posts on the Blogger platform:
What an awesome post!
THIS POST ROCKS!!! You’ve done a great job of pulling me in and I just devoured your post. I have thoughts and opinions about what you said and I can’t wait to share them with you!
Girl gotta comment
Typing, typing typing…
Gotta get all the thoughts out!
Damn, this comment is the BEST!
I’VE DONE IT!!! I can’t wait to rock the blogger’s world with my magical words.
While the page loads…
Let’s just hop over to this other tab and check out Twitter.
20 minutes later…
What? What’s that blog tab still doing open? I commented on that aaaaaages ago. Let’s just close that.
BUT WHAT I DIDN’T REALIZE!
The comment never went through because there was a CAPTCHA form.. BUT I ALREADY CLOSED THE WINDOW!!
Sometimes I even click into the tab and then immediately click “x”. So I see the CAPTCHA form just as the page is closing. At that point, it’s done. Over. THE COMMENT IS GONE!!!!!!
Does anyone else do this?
Obviously CAPTCHA sucks and no one likes it. However, my main problem is that I end up closing the window accidentally before I even get to the CAPTCHA bit! How about you?
