Please prove you're not a robot

You may have noticed that CAPTCHA has been enabled on my site.

This crap:

I don't know if it's just my site or all blogs hosted through Blogger (a Google product).

Even though my blog has this setting turned off, it appears Google feels it needs to be my Big Brother and force this onto my site (thanks to Peter who brought it to my attention this morning).

I hate word verification widgets. They are buggy and for Chrissakes, not even real words half the time. I don't even know what font that is. Who can read that?!

What is ufe? That's not a fucking word. It's like these words are generated by a bunch of dyslexics (no offense to dyslexics).

Yes, I am annoyed.

I must be a robot because I can't read these damn things half the time. I have to keep hitting the "refresh" button until one comes up that I can actually figure out. I'd much prefer it if they used one of many CAPTCHA alternatives.

I typed in "that's not even a fucking word" in a captcha once because it's so true!
