Words???

Surely I'm not the only one amused/annoyed/perplexed when Capcha tells me to "type the two words" and then presents me with a number and a string of letters (e.g. 345 udentchi).

What annoys me more is that Blogger requires one to do another Captcha after previewing a comment. Why? Isn't once enough?

(OTOH, at least Blogger/Blogspot has comment preview, a definite Wordpress weak spot.)

Heck, I don't bother to profreed.

What REALLY bugs me is when the numbers are so dim that, even with my sharp eyesight, I can barely make them out so need to guess and sometimes get it wrong, then have to re-do even though it's Captcha's fault. (Also dislike how "rn" and "m" look so much alike in that typeface).

The captcha's job is to prevent bots; it bamboozles the user at times. I agree with Kathie that it is often faint, blurred or just plain illegible.
