Captchas are just Turing Tests

The comments on Jeff’s post that Software development is basically a religion found themselves talking about Jeff’s captcha, which is the word orange. Always has been. Basically, there’s a mandatory field. Fill it in wrong, and you get no comment. But because having this mandatary, when’t a spam bot going to figure that out? You may as well have the word “orange” as text, not a graphic, and then the vision impaired can play too.

I think I’ve talked about this before.

BTW: welcome to the 6th of the 6th of the 6th. Finally Americans and the rest of the world can agree on the date.
