Kittens fighting spambots

This is surely the cutest anti-spam-bot measure ever! Instead of deciphering random alpha-numeric strings, you get to select kittens! It doesn't get much better than this!!

Click here for the article The Cutest Human-Test: KittenAuth, and click here to test out the KittenAuth Test! Found on Adorablog.

We are kitties and we're here to help you fight spam!

I love this explanation from the creator of KittenAuth:
"I began to start to think of processes that we can do every day with little effort and a computer would either have to be extensively reprogrammed then taught all the possible combinations of entries. I also wanted something that people could customise to their website — eg: instead of everyone use letters and numbers.

Kittens are the answer to all this. Sure you can teach a computer what a cat looks like, and it will probably have a fair shot at picking kittens from alligators but what about when you put it up against other similarly cute animals? Well... I've yet to have something try and bodge through it."

I can't say I disagree. I'll check to see the consensus. Happy mother's day!
