I hope no one hates me after this post. I’m on a mission to make the entire planet like me, so that could really set me back a bit. But I gotta get a couple of things off my chest.
First, CAPTCHAS. You know, these things:
I hate them. If you use one on your blog, I’m begging you, take it off. Don’t be afraid of spam comments. I don’t use a CAPTCHA and I’ve never received even one spam comment that made it past the filter already in place. For the love of your readers (and especially my sanity) just take it down. If you need help, e-mail me. I will spend my whole weekend helping all ya’ll taking your CAPTCHAS down. I will. I hate them that much.
Second, spoilers. I hate a lot of things. People who wait for my parking spot at the store before I’m even in my car. Coconut. Yogurt with fruit chunks. People who stand too close to me. But when you ruin a book or movie for me, that trumps everything else. Please hear me, if you’re going to reveal major plot points from a movie or book, warn people about that crap first. Don’t just be all like “Oh so-and-so dies. It was so sad. Aren’t you sad about that?” Hell yeah I’m sad. Because you ruined the whole book for me you jerk.
How about the time I was about sit down and watch The Sixth Sense, **WARNING** SPOILER AHEAD (you see how I did that?) and some boob says to me “Can you believe Bruce Willis was a ghost the whole time?” And that person was never seen again. I’m kidding. Maybe.
My main point is, stop irritating me. And for the love of God, stop making Haley Joel Osment cry. Get rid of your CAPTCHA. Keep your big spoiler-filled mouth shut.
I appreciate your cooperation in this matter. (also I love you please don’t hate me)
P.S. Apparently Blogger changed their settings when I wasn’t looking and I actually did have a CAPTCHA on my comments! You can only guess how much of a dope I’m feeling like right now. But really, it’s Blogger’s fault and not mine. Divert blame whenever you can, I always say. Like that time I threw up on the self-serve drink machine. Not my fault. Why’d they put that thing in the way of my vomit anyway?
And just to make me even more insane, nothing I do can make the CAPTCHA go away. I turn it off, save my settings, and it doesn’t do a thing. Obviously the CAPTCHA demons have it in for me. I need a Catholic with some holy water, pronto.
