Seriously Captcha?!

I know I use the annoying captcha thing on my blog - if I don't, I seem to be overrun with spam almost immediately.  However, after commenting on someone else's blog, here's what my captcha looked like:


Yeah.  I might not be a robot but there's no words in the picture of a light...

My one burning question:

Was lamp an acceptable answer?

The captcha thing is certainly annoying and bizarre, but like you said - if you don't use it you get overrun with spam.

BW: It was for your blog (and I see my comment is now there), so yes, it worked!

Ahh, now I feel special, lol.

When I posted the first comment on this thread, the captcha was a picture of the number 8. Still not as weird as a lamp, but still - it's a picture of the number 8. They couldn't just type the number 8?

I don't use the capture thing and I have never received a spam comment. Wierd.

I don't use the capcha either. I get all kinds of spam, but it never actually gets posted. The filter does a pretty good job of catching it.
