Puddles Duddles Barrel Butt came up with a grrrrreat Official Song fur us... That girrrrl Loves the Bono guy and U-2. Now in light of a recent event, I think this is one of the mostest perfect thingys that PUDDLES has EVER come up with... and trust me... THAT ONE has come up with a BUNCH of Stuffs over the years! Thanks Puddles fur this one. YOU and the Song hit it on the nail head. THIS is THE song fur Blogville!!!

You all know that I LOVE Signs.. I have them ALL over my house and yard. Signs and Symbols are cool thingys.... THIS # symbol is really versatile. You can use it to show a NUMBER
like #87 I like it used THAT way. Butt you can ALSO use # fur Other thingys as well.
Like playing that grrrrreat game. Furst you make a nice big # and away you go... That is a FUN use of the #.
It even has a NAME.... Yep it Does... Hash Tag!!!
You can use it in place of the word POUND.. Like this.. Ernie weighs 10 # and 7 ounces. Or I would like #87 pounds of Snacks.

Now speakin of stuffs like Signs and Symbols and Numbers and Letters... Folks I gotta SAY this... I (Frankie Furter) have just about Had It with these Double the Trouble WAYYY to Difficult to see and type correctly.. Word Varification thingys. They have truly gotten in my furs. These are makin it way too difficult fur ALL of us... butt ESPECIALLY fur our furends who have some VISION problems!! I (Frankie Furter) say... they gotta GO... Now here is the impawtant thingy... many MANY of you don't EVEN KNOW that they are on YOUR blog... when YOU bring up YOUR blog... and scroll down... the Word Verification thingy doesn't always show up fur YOU... You need to ASK your Followers... Do you have to do W.V. to post on My Blog? AND if they say YES... you should REALLY consider going in and getting RID of it. I Dumped it a LONG time ago and have had NO Trouble. I can't PAWmise you won't, butt I really doubt it.
Please ASK Your Followers... it is probably the only way you will know if they are being FORCED to spend precious Nappin time typing these USELESS thingys.
If you would like the INSTRUCTIONS fur Turning it off you can go to and scroll down to the post fur Feb. 20th.. Everythingy you need to know is written out in EASY to Follow Instructions. THANKS fur lettin me put this up fur everybuddy, Miss Jan.
I am now ONLY typing them ONCE... and if that doesn't Suit Blogger... I am going to have to move on to another blog. I don't want to seem Cross or Mean, I just don't have enough TIME to keep doing this fur YOU.
PLEASE PLEASE.... CHECK WITH YOUR FOLLOWERS AND TURN IF OFF IF YOU HAVE IT. I love all of YOU, butt.. Grrrrrrrrr I hate Word Verification.

I'm with you all the way on that word verification thing. HH had one on one of her other blogs. Boy she wishes she knew about Jan's post back then. It took her forever to find out you had to go back to the old dashboard in order to get at the thing. What a pain it is.

Oh... love Puddles song...

Have a great day, pal.

pawhugs, Max

Hmm, thanks for the advice! I'm just a baby blogger so these things are good to know. Frankie, you should come check me out. I'm a wiener looking for a good home and my mommie writes about me!

Bouncing Bertie said...

Yes we too hate the new word verification, which causes difficulties even for those of us with good eyes, so we can imagine the problems that our friends with imperfect sight have. So we have turned it off on our blog, but are moderating any comments on posts greater than a few days old. So far the spam filter has caught the stuff we wouldn't want on the blog, but we are monitoring what happens closely. We also plan to contact blogger to complain about the new verification system and would encourage others to do so!

We get confused about the hash thingy in the UK, where pound sign is our currency ££££!

Debbie said...

I also turned word verification off...,I didnt even no it was on...hate having to type those words in!

Golden Woofs! SUGAR said...

Woof! Woof! Mmm I don't have to worry about that since we moved to WP. Do you know what the next changes in Blogger ... oh many will not like it. Will let you know later. Remember we got an announcement this Monday. Happy Weekend. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

There are some blogs I can't even comment on because of the word verifications. Even though I type it correctly, it tells me they are wrong. Some of them are so bad I can't even TELL what they are supposed to say.

So, do you have to do a WV when you comment on my blog?

Minnie and Mack said...

Hu-mom hates them as well! We're heading over to our dashboard and turning them OFF.

Thanks, Frankie and Ernie!

Drools and licks,
Minnie and Mack

I agree 100%. Blogger needs to stop making "improvements" that drive everyone crazy!

Grr and Woof,
Sarge, COP

The Teacher's Pets said...

No, I don't know anything about the word verification thing so I'd better go to Jan's blog for more help! I've been gone for 6 months and had trouble pre-posting my blog for 7:30 am this morning but the post didn't show up for some reason. So I am very, very rusty with blogging to say the very least! Thanks for the tip!

Pibble said...

This is why YOU are the King, er, Mayor of Blogville! You just make sense, Frankie! Those word thingies have got to go.

♥Mona + Weenie + Mommy, too♥ said...

chicamom85 said...

Frankie, my pal, I love you and I would be so sad if you didn't visit me. Please let me know if mine is on. I think my Mommy turned it off, but she can be a little slow on puter stuff, so please let us know.

Loveys Sasha

scotsmad said...

We turned off our WV, but some pups say they are still on for them, and others say they're not. Go figure.

Anyway, is it just us, or have they become SLIGHTLY easier to read now that the black blotch has been taken away.

XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & roxy

ra husky said...

We are in absolute agreement! the new format is sooo hard! we've set comments on posts over two weeks old to require moderation and have noticed this catches 99% of spammers. here's to easy commenting mates!!

ra husky said...

Um yeah, sometimes I swear it's not even english. sometimes we get dirty ones though- that's funny.


Shawn said...

We agwee! In fact, we have not left comments on sum bloggys cuz ouw secwetawy couldn't wead da dawn things.
Anywho, we tuwned ouws off long time ago..had a couple pwoblems butt itz no biggie!

K9 Katastrophie said...

Totally agree.

Anonymous said...

I'm with ya too! I HATE those darn things! To be honest, sometimes I go to blogs and don't leave comments because the darn thing don't work right.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

We're still borrowing Jan's magnifying glass and being told we're wrong. So we're still writing emails where we can to let bloggers know their wv is on. We hope our directions help any who have a problem finding how to turn it off.

Bunk said...

I hate verification too! I understand it is for all the scammers and spammers and all that good stuff but it gets underneath my furrrr like a tick!!!! BRRRRRRRR. I have young pug eyes that are sharp like a knife but I still can't see them. Thanks for this post!

Rubie and Poots (her Mum) said...

Hear Hear Frankie!!!! I think the WV is HORRIBLES and turned mine off over a year ago - make it EASY for users to COMMENT blogger!!!!!! My mum and I are still goin' cross eyed and spit the dummy about it all the time. We've noticed that a few of our fav blogs have got rid of them......BUT there are still TOO MANY around. PLEASE TURN THEM OFF!!!!!!!!

Whew. I'm off my soap box now. Tail Wuggles, Rubie

houndstooth said...

Mom had to switch her other blog to comment moderation for all comments because some jerks with nothing better to do kept attacking it and posting nasty comments. There's no good way around those things, I'm afraid. I know it can be a pain, but I also respect those who get hit with a lot of spam and internet trolls to keep their blogs safe. If Blogger would spend as much time keeping the riff raff from being able to keep getting accounts and harassing people as they do with all the things that give us headaches, the world would be a much friendlier place. At least, the internet world would!

we turned ours off that was the worse thing bloggy has ever done

Oskar said...

I couldn't agree with you more! This new WV is awful and troublesome.

sprinkles said...

That's a great song, it definitely fits Blogville!

I'm totally with you on the whole word verification thing. I don't even know why I bothered with it in the beginning but I turned mine off. At least, I'm pretty sure I did.

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Howdy Mr Frankie and Little Ernie, we hate the two word thingy too and turned ours off (we hope). We love the puddles song. Its perfect for blogville. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory
