I hate online verification codes (also known as CAPTCHA). I guess we have to stop robots from spamming. (That was the plot of I, Robot, wasn't it?)
When they make the words all crooked and twisted with all kinds of background designs, it makes it hard for even me to figure out the letters sometimes. It seems lately that servers always reject the first answer I type in the box, even though I'm sure I am seeing the 'letters' correctly. Maybe this means that I am a cylon. Cylons are hot.
