HEY!!! That’s not nice.

While filling out an online form today, I was presented with what we in the web biz call a CAPTCHA image. It’s one of those graphics that has text you need to confirm. The text is either distorted, covered with lines, shapes, or colors, or even both. It is presented in such a way as to obscure the text enough so that a computer can’t automatically guess what it says. They’ve become quite popular and for good reason. They work. But what happens when they start fighting back, or at least letting you know how they feel about you.

I kid you not, this is what it asked me to confirm…

Who you callin' a creep?  Why I oughtta...

I’m not sure how I feel about that. 🙂
