I Haven't Got Comment Verification Added to My Blog

I haven't got Comment Verification added to my blog.  This is something that Google seems to be doing to many people.  I have discovered that if you type your comment and publish as usual and ignore the text verification box it should post.  I have found this out only by doing this on other peoples blogs.  This works of course only if they haven't really got it added.  Lol!!!
