Are You Human?

I swear to God what is the point of this thing?

Don't you know how when you try to log into an account, and you have to type in these randomly put together words or letters? For example:





Either way, I find them utterly annoying. What about everyone else?

Also, if I have to lock my own thread than so be it, I could care less. Just wanted to know if anyone else agreed.

Yes, exactly! It is annoying when you can't read it and you have to repeat the damn thing. Also, they have it in audio if you can't read it, but that doesn't really help.

Yes, Gaia, I agree with you on that.
Though it's designed to keep bots from logging on, it is a bit obnoxious.
Also, here on Cr if you send too many inboxes in one day, then you have to do one of those verification things every time you send an inbox! If a bot already got onto the site, then doing those things clearly wont keep it from spamming!

They are annoying. Especially the google ones. I can't read that shit. ):

I like the ones they have on Crunchyroll and Livejournal more, though, because they usually come up saying the most random things, and I'm easily amused.

Geez they're annoying as hell, but only when you can't read them, I used to have trouble reading the ones for Megaupload. Imagine if you have to type those before writing in someone's guestbook in cr.

Uuuuch how annoying. If I get it wrong 90% of the time does that make me human?

I don't really care. No skin off my back. The only thing that pisses me off is when I can't read it. What the hell? I remember once I had to try at least 6 times until I got it right. I swear to god, it all looked like a bunch of lines and random shapes. I had no idea what to type O_o

i'm surprised someone admits that she's dumb. most people don't, btw.

back to the topic,
yes i find it very annoying when i do the recaptcha in some sites like Google. it is obvious that the words are too compressed. even if im not a disable, after doing undergoing that process, my eyes will surely get 'sick.'

Lol yes they are annoying, especially when I can't really read what's in the box... Some letters look similar in that box of mess @_@
However, I understand that it is necessary to keep bots out... until they come up with a better way to do so, we are stuck with slightly unreadable text...

A CAPTCHA is a program that can tell whether its user is a human or a computer. No computer program can read distorted text as well as humans can, so bots cannot navigate sites protected by CAPTCHAs.

LOL to the definition. captchas are useful if you look it in the site's view. but for us humans, who have low patience level, we find them utterly annoying.
Posted 10/26/09
^Oh, so that's what it's for. The whole bot thing makes sense now.
I guess that's pretty useful...but it still pisses me off.

Not really a problem for me.

Just a way to prevent spambots taking advantage and spamming the whole site.

I just think of it as a precise typing and a camouflaged reading test.

But some distorted letters which you can't easily distinguish or read at all are the ones which annoys me.
