Word Verification Psychology

I long ago disabled the word verification feature on my blog. Since then I've only had maybe 5 or 6 spam comments, so I leave it off to make it easier for any commenters to do so on my blogs.

I understand that many others haven't been so lucky. They have to keep the word verification on for their comments or the spam engines will bury them in stupid business comments.

Anyway, I was at Miss Norma's blog, Collecting My Thoughts (a favorite of mine) and went to leave a comment.

What was the security word I had to type in to leave the comment?


It kinda creeped me out. I felt as if the random letter generator they use somehow saw into my soul.

Bwahahahaha!!!! I visited a blog a while back and the word verification was very getting around it at all.....I had to repeat it 3-4 times before it accepted it.

I was floored!

That is too funny!

Hey, you want some pictures to challenge you? I have a couple that need serious help, if they are even remotely usable.

OMG, that cracks me up! Some of those word verification things are so crazy. Glad you don't have it on your blog, because I can never read them.
