Mortgage and Lending with Larry Bettag - Cherry Creek Mortgage

Not too often I comment on a deminimus item here.  However when commenting on some blogs today, for the first time I realized that members do not have to type in the word below.  Or type in the name of the fruit below.  It's appearse that once you're signed in...YOU'RE IN.  No more "you put the incorrect text graphics below." 

Some other AR changes appear as well.  Localism is a feature.  I still don't understand all of the AR improvements, but can I say....THANK YOU VERY MUCH.  I love what I see so far.

Larry, I noticed it yesterday. I'm curious to see it is intentional. I would be nice not to have to type in the graphic all the time.

Yes... amen, I would always type in the wrong word for some reason.. But they show up on different blogs and some they don't.  I am confused.

I noticed that yesterday, but I am logged in now and have to enter a word below.  What is up with that?

That's great. No more grumixameira. I was so miffed by some of the word choices, I wrote TWO posts on the subject in the past years.  One was called WHAT THE H.E. Double Hockey Sticks is a Grumixameira, and Random Fruits. I know it's typically "bad from", but i thought they may be fun to re-visit now that this laborious process is a thing of the past.

I understand that you only need to enter it on the first blog comment post after you log on, and then you are good for the rest of the session. It was put in place to eliminate spamming in the blog comments. If spamming becomes an issue in the blog comments again, the AR gods will bring it back.

I thought it was broken at first, and that maybe my posts wouldnt "work"

It is a lot easier!  I think that you have to put it in for the first post you make when you log in and after that you are good to go.

Kim...thanks for clarifying that I get really confused.'ve been gone so long that even a computer doesn't recognize you!!!!!!  Who are you anyway?

Ralph....I'm sentimental...I have to say that I will always miss the fruits....NOT! more garbage!  No write in the text below.


Michael...I suppose that even a computer can be fickle.
