My comment stops short of CAPTCHA!

Last Update: January 27, 2016

What is CAPTCHA (an acronym for "Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart")? You are asked to decipher and enter the CAPTCHA code or image on display before you could submit your comment or online form. It is an anti-spam check to making sure you are a human and not a robot.

CAPTCHA code comes with many images as can be seen in some examples below:

In practice, some of these CAPTCHA images really post more than a challenge to us human as it is too difficult for most users to read correctly the code masked behind the graphic or visual. It is highly probable that our webpage CAPTCHA code may just discourage our visitors from leaving behind any constructive comment.

We certainly don't want that to happen as we could have missed many potential web page comments. These interactions are important web content metric towards improving our keyword or webpage ranking.

If you have taken the time and effort to compose a good comment to help the content author, and then you are being challenged by an illegible CAPTCHA image, just be kind, find and click that tiny REFRESH BUTTON and try to decipher the refreshed CAPTCHA image again until you can gain access to click that SUBMIT button:

What if all your attempts failed?
