How Come?

I just left a comment at someone else's site. She has the password comments feature turned on too.

And I was just wondering - how come the letters are always all wavy? Does it somehow make it harder for spammers to overcome?

Also, Denise mentioned that she was having problems leaving comments after I enabled that feature. Has anyone else had problems? If so - send me an email. Because you can't leave it in the comments.

I think they are wavy so they can make sure that its a human leaving the comment. Maybe spambots can read the letters if they are in a normal typeface. I have no idea.
yeah, i think frolics is right. in any case, my comment spam has been reduced to zero, so it works at least.
