It usually comes in the form of a series of dis­torted characters that a computer user must successfully decipher and retype. CAPTCHA stands for “Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart.” In Chinese, it literally means “verification code.”

Why it is blocked: No idea. The whole phrase is blocked, not just the portion meaning “verify,” and I don’t know of any hidden mean­ings for the word. The simplified version of the characters (验证码) is not blocked. Any guesses would be appreciated.
