I know some people are having problems with blogs that have the word verification turned on.
I turned it off last week but when it is off I seem to get so much more spam comments being left ~ people advertising their own businesses & rubbish so I'm afraid I have turned it back on again.
I know blogger is good at catching them but some do slip through I've noticed, the ones where they link their 'name' to a website & just leave a random comment generally not associated to the blog post!!!!!
I've tried this before & when it's turned off the spam comments arrive (!!!) so I'm sorry if it is annoying to anyone but I am turning it back on again.
