Remove Word Verification Captcha from Blogger Posts

With the recent antispam action taken by Blogger, bloggers are having to confirm that their blogs are not spammy by confirming a word verification captcha. How to Remove Word Verification from Blogger Posts?

Blogger has a small orange question mark image adjacent to “Word Verification” which leads to a form which says

“Blogger’s spam-prevention robots have detected that your blog has characteristics of a spam blog. (What’s a spam blog?) Since you’re an actual person reading this, your blog is probably not a spam blog. Automated spam detection is inherently fuzzy, and we sincerely apologize for this false positive.
Before we can turn off mandatory word verification on your posts we’ll need to have a human review your blog and verify that it is not a spam blog. Please fill out the form below to get a review.”

And when someone has a look at it, verifies that it isn’t spam, they will whitelist your blog so it no longer has the word verification requirement. Simple. Even my blog is asking for such Word Verification, I too have submitted a request.

Blogger has earlier introduced Captchas to combat comments spam in Blogger, which has blocked spam comments to a considerable degree. Then there was flag objectionable blogs, now lets see this new outcome to combat blog spam.

Update: Blogger whitelisted my blog within a few hours of clicking that orange question mark. You too can get your blog whitelisted and Remove Word Verification Captcha from popping up repeatedly and blog easy. This is the reply I got –

“Your blog has been reviewed, verified, and whitelisted so that it will no longer appear as potential spam. If you sign out of Blogger and sign back in again, you should be able to post as normal. Thanks for your patience, and we apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.”
