To Capthca or NOT To Captcha

Many of us (myself included) opt to include the captcha so that the spambots can't infiltrate our beautiful blogs. I'm on Google's Blogger, and I've learned that Blogger sometimes cops an attitude and insults its users... seriously.

Check it out here and consider if you still want to feature captchas on your site...

Priceless. I'd love to write a few of these. I got "rqmaswh" which just isn't any fun.

I've had some pretty bad ones but nothing quite as good as this. I've had "stoopid" and "poop" but still not as great as this. Now I'll screenshoot them and post them- send me mean captchas if you get them!!! :)

I see those everywhere now and more times than not I can't even distinguish the letters...

My only contention is that I would love to have a few computers reading my blog. At least they might tell a few of their computer friends about it and I might build a following.

I guess my feelings are the same about those companies that steal articles from blogs and repost them on their own blog. I wouldn't even mind that. Again...at least that would show that I have a fan out there and my writing is worth stealing.

By the way, the CAPTCHA for my comment is mdgicdd

That is awesome! I haven't had the pleasure of getting a fun captcha yet. But, I have had my blog classified as spam and shut down for a few days. Which I still haven't figured out why it was called spam.

>Beland, I hit refresh until I got a funny captcha (I'm not signed in to Blogger yet)... the best that just came up is "lszbos"... hmmm!

>Rebekah, REAgentinCT.com (Athol) was considered spam once, maybe you should email him?

Y'all email in screen shots of your funny captchas for everyone to see!

As a thousand thoughts race through my mind I am choosing to show maturity and not write any of them down.
