"WHAT DID YOU JUST CALL ME?!!?" - A friend's blog security measure passes computerized judgement

I have been in an ongoing debate with a friend of mine on the topic of Biblical inerrancy and the wars of extermination conducted by Israel in the Old Testament, apparently under the command of God. I dropped out of it for a little while but I have returned with a comment that seriously considers my friend's point of view without criticizing it. The blog's security demanded that I enter a word in order to insure that I wasn't some software spambot. I couldn't help but entertain the notion that the word was a criticism of the content of my post and an insult to me.

Was that a criticism of my overall point of view, or of my hypothetical concession?
