  • TIt is used to reduce spam bot posting on the site which happened last year with massive attacks here. It's called a reCaptcha, from Google and has been in effect here since May 27 of this year. However, the 1-800 numbers are still getting through and posting some answers and comments. So it doesn't work as good as it should.

    This is something new and annoying.

    Yahoo has initiated this service to be able to differentiate between an honest poster and a spamming robot.

    As with all social media today, Yahoo is doing this to "clean up" it's message and answer boards.

    We know that the Russians advertised in Facebook in 2016 to get people to vote for Trump.
