You been captcha’d


Yes captcha is the word, it means “Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart”. This is a way to keep automated spam engines from making entries to blogs, forums, and any other web service that may be at risk. You have seen this security measure in use at various sites, when you create an account or buy some item you have to read a wavy or distorted picture and enter it’s letters and/or numbers to continue.

The premise is that the program will not be able to read the picture and you will.
