Wanted: one seeing eye dog

by statia on April 14, 2008

Is it me, or am I the only one that will end spend half my evening typing in a captcha code on a blog, only to be told that it’s the wrong code, over and over and over again? Even though, I KNOW I typed in right at least 6 times.

Captchas are evil (but effective, granted). I often wonder if sites realize when they have unreadable captchas (and if they do it for their own twisted amusement). I end up guessing half the time.

Same here, dude. I hate those things.

That’s happened to me before. What a pain in the ass. I sincerely hoped I’d never have to do the captcha and I got away w/o it for a long time since my blog isn’t a standard blog engine … but eventually they caught up to me. Bastards.

Yeah, I had to go with captcha eventually, too. I just wish, if they did it, that they wouldn’t distort the image so goddamned much that not being able to fucking read it wouldn’t happen like 20% of the time.

I hate that. They go overboard to distort the image. Sometimes it makes me wonder if I am a spamfucker and just didn’t know it, that’s why it won’t work for me.

They’re evil and they were actually just cracked by some group of hackers recently. Turns out they’re not as foolproof as everyone thought.
