Ever had to look at a word or group of letters and re-type them to prove you are not a computer??

I did a case study in college on the usages of this for one of my minor classes...specifically this reCAPTCHA program since there are other versions of it out now. The whole thing is relatively impressive in how much it cuts down on spam for certain sites. Especially forums that get a lot of advertising spam.

The artical was talking about how it does two things at once, cuts down on spam, then it pair with programs that scan books or other media and if it gets to a word that it cant read it puts it in line to be used in one of those verification blocks. The person trying to sign on, see the word, and types it in and BAM, the computer now knows the word, and can move on with it scanning, and the website now knows that the user is a human and not a bot
