I was amazed the other day when I set up a PayPal account. I found that in order to set up the account I had to repeat back the numbers that I read from a slightly obscured graphic image.

Paypal is hardly a "toy" site. My immediate thought was, "Isn't this what merlyn's always talking about?" Unbelievable that they would use such a limiting method to authenticate users.
