“Select all images with parking meters”. How am I supposed to know what a US parking meter looks like?!
Stop using this imperialist Google CAPTCHA spyware on your websites!
@laura exactly! This blogpost (not mine) nails it https://shkspr.mobi/blog/2017/11/captchas-dont-prove-youre-human-they-prove-youre-american/
And do I choose just the squares with the actual meter or also the one with the pole etc etc....I despise these things
Also for me the Captchas are mostly broken, maybe due to browser settings. Most of the time it says I made a mistake even though I answered correctly, so it forces me to go through five or so of those stupid things.
Remember when recaptcha was a reasonably good thing that was supposed to help digitise books rather than train killer robots?
@laura Honest question. If a company has a lot of spam issues on their sign up form. How do you fight that if not with some form of captcha? What is a good solution?
@laura There is a very good essay about "Why you probably don't need recaptcha": https://nearcyan.com/you-probably-dont-need-recaptcha/
