While it may be a good spam-detector and slow down multi-posters (just tyring to build up the number of their posts), I have trouble reading one of the words each time, because the letters often blend together.


For example, some of the "d"s look like "a"s, and so forth.  The clear-to-read words aren't a problem--and, I like the idea of combining a real word with a nonsense word--but my eyesight isn't all that good, so the run-together letters are difficult for me to decrypt properly.


Perhaps the Administrators might consider spacing-out the letters, even in the nonsense word, just a bit, for visually challenged members like me.

I think that the Admin, and I don't think we got new guy(s), just grabbed the first program they found and slapped it on as a fix-all.  It's annoying, esp when they still have other bugs/glitches from the opening of this nu site that they haven't fixed yet.


I've read lots of things about ways to get around the Catchpa, most of it found on google.com.

Okay I have now gotten something unreadable below. Been on this site through thick and thin, over several years, and I must say I'm seriously considering not being a member any more. Owing to this feature. I really believe this will hurt membership here.


sensessi sansculotte... wtf?! This is stupid.

You only have to get one word right. One of the words is a test, the Captcha knows what the word is, and if you get it right you've proven you're human. The other word is an unreadable word from a book and the Captcha system is asking you to confirm the word. For that word you can write anything you like. Over on 4Chan, users usually write rude words. N****r is most popular.

It's very annoying. I've gotten into the habit of making sure I copy each post before I post it because if I get a letter wrong in the security words thing, then it erases my entire post and I have to type it again. It's extremely annoying.


So COPY YOUR POSTS BEFORE YOU POST THEM!!

if anything, the hassle of submitting a post may lead to longer and more thoughtful responses and fewer troll-like knee-jerk retorts.

I guess not-because they don't give you any words and when you hit 'submit', it goes back to the first page


 


You'll just have to copy and paste

When I try to quote I end up at Google.com  :: shrugs ::


But I agree that this is annoying and frustrating
