I hate reCAPTCHA
Submitted by msameer on Tue, 19/08/2008 - 4:30pm

Really, I f****** hate reCAPTCHA. I decided to input "foo" instead of the hard to read word (Which is the scanned part probably).

Yes it's stupid and I'm being bad but screw them if I can't read the captcha to be able to comment on a blog post.

Have you tried the audio supplement?

Sorry, for that, Sameer, I use reCaptcha as well. But you know what, I guess I'm going to revert to old math and nth word ones.

Heh. So much for the greater good :)

As an end user, I like the "human questions in text" approach versus images.

Like:

"Enter the answer: 1+1=?"

"Type in the word duck"

I think it would be funny if you made the commenter ANSWER a question about you... :-) Then again you wouldn´t get very many comments if they were total strangers! :-/
