It was interesting to see how yahoo chat has now removed bots from its chat server by implementing Captcha Verification. I even see a yahoo user in every chat room which most possibly be looking around for spammers and bots.
Yahoo Chat rooms are very clean now for sure. Thanks to my friend Ravi who pointed me out to this when I was telling how yahoo chat rooms are filled with bots all the time.
Update#1 : Download Yahoo Messenger For Vista ( click) is available now
Update#2 You can also record Yahoo Messenger Voice call with this software
The process is very simple. Any time you login to yahoo chat rooms, they give u a link which acts as a captcha verification in new page. At this point of time you wont be able to see any logged in user. Pretty Neat!!. As soon as you complete it, you are allowed to move into the room with a greeting message. Here are the images which will give you a clear indications. Click on the images to see detailed view
This must have increased the number of chat users on yahoo for sure. Its good to see non smappy links now . Further checking I found this was already updated by yahoo messenger blog.
