I just began a thread on this and it is not the only site that has
implemented this.  currently, there are two work arounds that do not
provide parity.  one is to use a .wav file that a person can listen to
and input the info and the other is to ask someone to call you to
confirm your registration.  I do understand though that this problem is
being researched by yahoo for fixing.

By the way, I believe that this violates the wcag by providing an image
with text in it only.

Can any body on this list tell me about this new feature  from Yahoo:
"Yahoogroups has implemented a security feature to stop automated
programs from spuriously registering yahoo accounts." cited from an
send to me by a college who got the information from another list. We
like to have information about what the reaction has been in the US both
from users and from Yahoo if any? Sorry for being a bit Off Topic please
mail answers to me directly, in order not to insult this list. I have
in the IG archive but not found any notice of this new Yahoo feature.

Kind regards
