Thanks Dug. I didn't know there was a name for those. :D And I agree - they can be very hard to read sometimes.

According to wiki it's
Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart
Which seems a tad contrived for me.

If they are going to pick the initial letters they should at least be consistent and call it CAPTTTTCHA.

I suppose they could have gone for Public Input Test That's B****y Unreadable Lol Lol

There again that's got acronyms in .... hmm not so easy this.

Welcome to the forum Cloudstarer! :text-welcomewave:
Getting an education was a bit like a communicable sexual disease. It made you unsuitable for a lot of jobs and then you had the urge to pass it on.
