|Your guess is as good as mine|
What is up with the captcha lately? My old friend "Captcha" is all new and evidently updated. It was bad enough when they were just weird words, now all of a sudden I find not one, but two words-- and they are twisty and mangled as if they just survived an automobile accident. I practically stand on my head and look this way and that way. Finally I cry uncle and just hit the whirly button which gives me two more chances to sit there scratching my head! And they say crossword puzzles give you a brain workout.
I know that computers troll the Internet and post anonymous comments on blogs advertising things that I doubt anyone would ever buy, but they keep trying. I get it. These sneaky computers are getting better at their job. They are getting good at making their comments appear legitimate. Scroll down, however, and one will see the link for diet pills, gambling sites, or male enhancement drugs at the bottom. The Captcha is disabled on my blogs and yes, I do get several Anonymous comments a day that my trusty spam filter catches and corrals. I simply hit delete…and they are gone. Poof! I hope I said that loud enough for those pesky computers to hear! MY SPAM FILTER CATCHES AND I DELETE...
As for commenting on other blogs that still have Captcha. Some sites test your elementary knowledge. They want to know what 2 +5 equals. No problem. Some ask you the color of the ocean. Elementary-- my dear Watson and I can handle that without an issue. And then there are the twisty words... and up pops that oh so familiar red highlighted message that tells me I have entered the wrong letters. I turn my head, I look sideways, and finally I just guess. I wonder, though, if I guess wrong 3 times am I out? Or can I keep guessing to infinity and beyond?
I “guess” we will see. In the words of Elmer Fudd....Dagnabbit!
