Prove you are not a robot

Recently when vising blogs I have found more and more people with a 'captcha' box headed 'Please prove you are not a robot'. I get frustrated at these verification boxes because they slow you down when commenting and I was asking myself why so many people seem to be turning them on?????

I found CVC challenge blog also has it on and I couldn't believe Chris would have turned it on, but she didn't know anything about it. So I experimented leaving a comment on my own blog and low and behold the Robot box came up. I couldn't find a way to turn it off in the settings and that really annoyed me. 

So after searching around a bit on the internet and experimenting myself I have found that if you have a blogger blog it is likely you
  do not have to fill this in on another blogger blog. 
TRY IT. I did, it worked for me here on CVC challenge blog.

Secondly you probably can get rid of it if you want to. I have my comment box set to come up as a pop-up as I like to see the blog post and comment box at the same time, but if you embed it so that it comes up at the bottom of the post, the captcha box disappears - again this worked for me, but I have changed it back to a pop up box.

So first of all try publishing your comment without filling in the captcha box if you are on blogger and commenting on another blogger post. Good luck.
