“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 Please select all members of the UK Houses of Parliament between the years 1980 and 2003.

@laura

This is one good reason, but not the only reason.

Captchas are, and encourage bad behaviour!

Please stop putting #reCaptcha or #hCaptcha or any other 3rd party captcha or your webpages!

Just say no to 3rd party captchas!

@laura
And do I choose just the squares with the actual meter or also the one with the pole etc etc....I despise these things

@Jkp @laura I have the same problem. I guess this is supposed to be "common sense".

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?

@murks
Sadly, for now, there seems no way to fight back and we are destined to forever search for crosswalks, fire hydrants and traffic lights!
@laura

@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 Every website should replace recaptcha with hcaptcha

@laura stop using ANY google spyware on websites (fonts, analytics, etc...)

@laura use google images; and pray you don't need to use a captcha for that yet

@laura we need a decentralized captcha service helping to train openly available AI and NNs.
