Captcha word selection

    I just added captcha to a form and the first two words it generated were "poison" and "waste"--not exactly the friendly experience we're going for with our clients. :) I hope I just got unlucky, but it made me curious--are there any content filters on the captcha besides (I assume) those for obscenity?

    :) Sorry to hear that. They are probably the worst ones. Yes, the words are filtered and there are no obscene words in our list.

    Yea, what is up with this uninspiring list of downers: Snake, Fear, Waste, Wrong, Stiff, Poison, Amount, Shame, collection agency, good luck with your purchase ;) etc.

    Was someone going through a divorce? 
    Those are the 1st ones that come up.
