Q: What is CAPTCHA?

A:

Many spammers have computer programs which flood forums with spam and advertisements. A CAPTCHA [en.wikipedia.org] is a "Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart". In other words, it's a computer program trying to decide if the visitor is human. Many CAPTCHAs are an image of garbled letters and numbers. In addition to that kind of image CAPTCHA, we have open-ended Signup Questions. Remember that a computer program will grade your answer, so keep it simple. If the question asks if ice is hot or cold, the answer will either be hot or cold; the computer won't understand freezing or burning. Since this is a genealogy site, there are some relationship questions.
