why is yahoo asking to verify some characters before you can send mail?

Every time I tried to send mail within the last two days I've been asked to verify some characters before I can send it what is going on?

    Hi,

    It is for security. Sometimes it does it a little but during a glitch it can get repetitious. Sorry, but at least you can send. Many can't now with the new format of Yahoo!.

    Hope this helps you.

    If a BOT somehow got your password, they could send thousands of SPAMS using your account.

    But the BOT can't read, so they can't use your email to send crap.
