Commenting as it is, can already be a burden to you my dear readers so I’ll just remove this lame metrobloggen CAPTCHA to ease your inconvenience. And I will stop manually removing those spams from that blog entry as I also got extremely tired of it.

Now please test the comment field without that Most Useless CAPTCHA In The Whole Universe.
