remove word verification on comments

who else is put off of leaving comments on blogs because of the barely readable word verification box that pops up? i know i am.. and its somewhat harder on your mobile.
fear not!
i was on twitter just now (@xtiffyxx) and saw a thifty mrs tweet about removing it so i thought i would share then we can all be comment-happy together, yayy! :)

click on the big orange B to take you to your dashboard.
click the down arrow between the 'create new post' and 'view blog' buttons.
select 'settings'.
on the left hand side, click 'posts and comments'.
scroll down, 3rd from the bottom is 'show word verification?'
select 'no' from the drop down button next to it.

done :) happy blogging! xxx
