    It happens to everyone now and then. It is called reCAPTCHA by Google. It is a program to help stop Spam Bots from posting here. It doesn't work that great as you will see some 1-800 spam numbers still post now and then. Not much you can do but live with it as long as Verizon Media wants to use it.

    It's been a feature since May 27 of this year, to help reduce spam bot posting. If you scroll through this ( Yahoo Answers) subcategory, you'll find numerous questions have been posted about the feature. Rarely does a day go by that someone isn't commenting on the reCaptcha feature.
