What's with the "type in the letters above" messages?
You know when you are trying to sign up for something online, and sometimes a box with weird distorted letters come up and it tells you to type in the letters that you see into the space below. I never understood the purpose of that step.

it is an anti spam system, so a computer can't automatically fill in the detail's for something like signing up for something. you have to identify the letters and type them in (which is sometimes hard to do).
