For the folks that got this turned off for their account.

Did you have to do any of this?

I got this from the guy who set my account up for me in face book.

"Hi Barry,

Facebook has several features in place to limit the potential for spam
and abuse on the site.  One such feature is the "word in the box" that
you see when poking, messaging, or sending friend requests.

There are two ways to stop seeing these "tests."  First, you can verify
your cell phone.  This process allows us to validate that a real person
is in control of the account.  This process should be explained to you
if you click on the "Verify" link below the word in the box.

The second way to stop seeing "words in the box" is to affiliate with a
college.  If your school provides you with an email address, you can
add a college network from the "Networks" tab of the Account page.

Unfortunately, if you cannot verify a cell phone or add a college
network affiliation, you will continue to see the words in the box.  I'm
sorry for the inconvenience, but for now, this is one of the most
effective tools we have in place to protect our users from abuse. Let
me know if you have any further questions.

Thanks for contacting Facebook,


Dj Paddy
