We all are prompted to do it.. you know, type in those silly words when we post to a blog.
The reason for the action is pretty clear: This action is there to prevent automated systems from adding comments to your blog, this is because it takes a human being to read the word and pass this step.
Random spamming is done by software programs and if you think it's difficult for a human to read those crooked scrunched up silly words, then FAHHGETABOUT IT for a computer to figure out. So you are a bit safe.
But the big question for me is how are those words generated and is there a blogger word dictionary..
I saw in Amy's post about she saw Saten and thought it said Satan, which made me laugh out loud. But I had one that was FAITSO, and I read it as FATSO.. So I know what you mean, I guess a little paranoid that some big computer is looking back at me (HA HA).. oh well.. another random idle thought.. carry on...
