I really dislike having to enter a code EVERYTIME I log in. Is this really necessary? I don't have to do this anywhere else but here. What is the purpose behind this? I always thought it was to keep out the bots.

Which distro are you using and which desktop
environment or window manager are you using?

If you are KDE or GNOME, there is an auto-login feature
that you can use - look in the control center. I know it is
possible for other desktop environment or window
manager. Do a search, i.e., for LXDE search for

LXDE autologin

also look around in the system utilities.

I dont mean the act of loggin in with a user name and password, I mean the code (captcha) that you have to enter. What they use to make sure you are human and not a machine. I use Debian with Gnome by the way. But I also read this site with Windows XP and Windows 7. All of which can remember my login info.
