Alphabet Test

Questions: Why do you have to type a bunch of nonsensical letters in order to leave a comment on a blog? And why, are they difficult to read? Is their a problem with poorly seeing people leaving inappropriate comments on blogs? Does typing the random letters make you feel like your comment is more important because you had to jump through a stupid hoop to post it? Is someone getting a royalty check every time I do this because they thought of the dumb ass idea in the first place? Was there a time when you could randomly leave comments on blogs with no check of your typing and alphabet skills? Have you ever not typed the right sequence and felt like a total moron? Are you lying right now?

Anyone got any answers?

It is to keep spammers from hitting your blog. They can't use their computer programs to random generate comments on blog that have the vert word. That's all.

You can actually have fun with it - because some of the "words" are so strange you can create some pretty funny sentences out of them [to share with your blog friends who are as warped as me.]

Okay - it's official. I am old.

Have a great week!
