CAPTCHAs . . . seriously?
Okay, I get the purpose of a captcha. You want to make sure I'm a real person and not a spam bot or program that is somehow designed to enter contests, comments and information without a real person suffering through the process. Honestly, I couldn't create a program to enter my information if my life depended on it. I'm just not that technology savvy. If you are going to make me enter a captcha though, could you at least make it legible? How about a real word? Is it asking too much to not include symbols that I've never even seen used in the English language before? I used to hate those math problems and the questions that would ask something like, "What color is grass?" just because I thought they were stupid and a bit of a waste of time. Right now, I think I'd take some good old fashion long-division over an illegible CAPTCHA.
