Inquiring minds want to know........

Ok...look at this phrase....

"Please type in the number you see into the field above. This helps reduce fake profiles."

Reckognize this statement??? If you have ever commented on a blog, you should!!!

Can someone please try to explain to me how inserting a number in there will reduce fake profiles??? We have, obviously, seen on numerous occassions how fake profiles seem to squeak past this concept and alot of other ones as well!

Just an observation...........

It only works on the auto-bots (isn't that a cartoon or sumtin? Autobots? ). It doesn't stop a scammer from sitting at his/her PC all damn night entering in fake stuff, and replying to e-mails with the email addy to contact them to get directed to their porn site.

It helps stop bots spamming profiles and blogs, as the bot program locks on to a site , it cannot "see" or type the random number,

Ah, I will try (sorry aint been around much, busy on my blog)
The numbers , I think, stom web spiders that ares spamming. It does not stop anyone actually on the post from replying.
It is a barrier for the spammers off the site just sending posts comments to all blogs.
That help?
