Hi,

I can't post on this blog with Captcha security.

I have Safari, and I never have posting problems on line.

I have the code correct, case and all.

What could be my problem?

Have you tried another browser? Disabled addons? Or it's just a messed up captcha if no one else can use it as well.

This blog page here:

Another browser? I don't have Firefox
How do I ? temporarily ? disable addons? ...Cookies? I may have a security setting on high.

Is it messed up? It may be, because there are no comments.

ERROR: Could not read CAPTCHA cookie. Make sure you have cookies enabled and not blocking in your web browser settings. Or another plugin is conflicting. See plugin FAQ.

The site is messed up. The newer posts use disqus for commenting

Excuse me,
but - What a bastard. A blog where you can't comment? WTF?

I also have a political blog, and I don't need lame CAPTCHA rubbish.

But, somehow, some people are able to spam my blog with bogus posts that are like - "Coming Soon, - FAT BUSTING TABLETS, click here." I have post review enabled, - Why do these spam posts never show up in my Pending() list?

I have to scroll through my posts list in Wordpress every morning to remove their spam.
How are they doing it?

Can Adsense lead to any security problems -> exploitable weakness?

As I mentioned that particular post and posts in its timeframe are messed up.. the captcha doesn't work.. and the site owner has changed over to disqus for comments on latter posts
