Note to new followers

I'm pleased that you think my blog is worth following, but I can't follow blogs with music playing in the background, and I refuse to follow blogs with word verification on them. I'm not just being mean. I can't follow blogs with music in the background because it stops me being able to hear my screen reader programme. And I don't see the point in following a blog I can't comment on, so that's why I wont follow blogs with word verification (the "listen and type" thing rarely works, and is a lot of hastle with a screen reader on the odd occasion it does work). So, if you're following my blog and I'm not following yours, then it will probably be for one of those two reasons.

That is totally understandable Tori. I find the word verification thing annoying and I see no point in it. As for the music, like Marmite I turn the speakers of as it's distracting.

I hope you're having a good Sunday. *hugs*

I hate the word verification thingie, Tori. But that is just because I am basically lazy :)

I've taken to keep my volume muted because sometimes the music is way too loud. You don't have the luxury because you need to hear.

I will definitely lay off music and will never use word verification! I promise!!!!!

I hope you had a nice day today. I saw a "kero dog" while walking this afternoon and thought of someone that has such a dog in Wales.

I'm such a typo-prone guy the word verification things can turn into multi-hour marathons in trying to type them correctly. :)

awe sorry bout that. I like my music playing, you can shut it off on the bottom. I'll take the word verification off for you =]

I didn't even think how much word verification must piss you off, it pisses me off just because it makes it a pain to comment on those blogs! Everyone should NOT have them. I like music players that YOU can start to hear the music, otherwise it can be a pain to find the player and stop it.

Thanks for the comments all, and yes, I had a good Sunday.

Glad it's not just me who finds these things annoying.

Jessica:
Thanks about the word verification, but even if the music can be turned off easily, I can't turn it off because:

. I can't scroll to it since I can't hear my screen reader.
2. Those players often only show up as "flash movie" and the buttons then don't get given names, and I don't know which button is which.

Oh I do hate those word verification things. For me, the music's not so bad, I just wish they'd put the player at the top of the page so I can turn it off if I don't like the tunes...
