I just submitted a Bubblews article on the efficacy of copper and copper-alloy ability to kill bacterial and viral pathogens on contact surfaces (See: www.bubblews.com/news/768594-anti-microbal-properties-of-copper-brass-and-bronze-contact-surfaces) and with the newly installed CAPTCHA challenge-response field that Bubblews is now using, had to enter the text of a randomly displayed image. But there was an error, -on my part.

The challenge-response image clearly showed the words as "industrial revolution" -a fairly common phrase. Here is the problem: if entered incorrectly the action is supposed to be denied. You cannot 'post' using an incorrect response.

By mistake, *I* entered "industrail revolution" (notice "indusTRAIL" with the "a" and "i" transposed. I spotted this after having hit the "SUBMIT" button. While watching the grinder (the 'wait' icon that is a rotating sphere/circle) I was expecting that my submission would be returned with an "incorrect," and be given a new challenge-responce.

But NO! The incorrect response was ACCEPTED and my article was PUBLISHED...

I don't know whether to be elated or worried here. 'Wrong responses' to CAPTCHA declined as a measure to prevent auto-bot spamming, but if a WRONG answer CAN be accepted, there is a problem with the CAPTCHA service's data. -At least, for this particular challenge-response image...

Has anyone else experienced this? Please provide feedback to this article.
