Darnell offers this piece of advice which worked for her .... you can just hit publish without entering the numbers!!! Now I WOULD favour this option but I still fear that the appearance of the Captcha Word verification would discourage more people from commenting than the scrolling down to leave a comment but ....... I guess we'll just have to wait and see!
WISHING YOU ALL THE BEST OF LUCK!!!! Let me know how it works out for you!
