What Does The Graphic Say?

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty

Have you ever wondered who comes up with all of those crazy word on the "what does the graphic say?" Have you ever typed it in wrong and your post or comment would not go through. I know that there are good reasons why this procedure is needed, but some of these words are just really out there.

The other ones that get me are the ones that are distorted and you can barely make out the letters. What do you guys think about the graphics?

I don't mind the ones on Active Rain, but some sites I have to try two or three times to get it right.  I miss the good ole days when we didn't have to worry about cheaters and spammers!

I love it when the word is somehow related to the post that it's beneath. If an Agent is ranting about a picky Agent that they're dealing with, the word was 'crabby' for example. Makes me laugh...

Sandy, I don't love them either.  You get them only with the first comment you make after signing in.  The fix would be to always stay signed in to AR.

on active rain it's very easy to read but on others you really have to strain to read them and even then its hard to read and write so you have to do it over

I agree with you, the ones here on Active Rain are a piece of cake compared to some other sites.

I'm involved in other blogging communities not related to RE, most of which are on blogger. What gets me is the people who have spam filtering words on blogs that are private, i.e. you have to have an invitation to see them at all. And yes, at least on blogger, it is a setting you can change.

Rick: I'm with you. Some of the words are really long. I would prefer to have one ~ like a password.

Julia: I really like that idea. Being able to change the words would be great. You could change it to something simple.

Sandy, if you stay logged in, you do get the 100 points applied daily - so say the AR gods.
