Ya these annoying things, these funky letters you have to type in before logging onto certain sites. Half the time I can't even make out what some of the letters are!

It's more for blocking automated spamming.

bot stopper, I would think there would be a better way to do it than those scrambled characters.

HAHA, I know. I just give up. One time I literally couldn't figure out what the letters were. It kept saying I filled them in wrong. I just said screw it, gave up, and drank a cold one. Who needs to register on www.fatchicksinpartyhats.com anyway

It isn't intended to determine whether or not you are a "hacker". It is intended to determine whether or not you are a human being.

It's an image of the passcode. If you know the passcode you're allowed to proceed. Automated tasks/bots can't extract a code out of an image so that's a stopper for them.

And they work great.

We get 15 to 20 new registrations at Patriots Planet every day that are all spambots that we have to delete manually because our old version of vbulletin does not support this.

They don't need to, they just run a script.

Most sites that use this method have a link underneath the image that if you click will read out loud the letters to you if you can't make them out.

Yeah, they're freaking fantastic. As an operator I LOVE them.

The good ones will have a button that changes/refreshes the letters in case you can't read the one it put up.
