    captcha is the most annoying, brain numbing thing to have to put up with yet…
    they could at least use a real word to make everyone better spellers, or find a different algorithm to block the bots or whatever…but no, another dragnet solution to annoy the shit out of people similar in situation to the TSA and their grope everyone crap.
    this country is becoming dumber by the second.

    Captchas keep out people in general.

    Spam is technology. Some spam bots are spreading like wild. Captcha is an example for the solving of a problem that we created. And we solved it very stupidly. Imagine if we would convert all the captcha keystrokes that everyone has to type daily into mechanical energy. We could power a small village.

    Thanks you for this video. Will keep this in mind when doing captchas on sign up and copyright report on my site. And then you fail putting a password in 5 times.

  13. superseekit says:

    @PanndaKat the best way to remove spam is to delete
    capcha make it hard to spam but also a pain for us to comment freely.
    a double edge sword.

  14. Starryillusion says:

    people should get more creative and make it better ways to keep out spam bots.

  19. TheLMfaOSHO says:

    I can’t even understand that shit. Did he say FIBUARY? OR FIBLUARY?!

  20. PanndaKat says:

    Ya, i get a captcha per two comments.
    I’m just really active on YouTube, this is very very annoying.

    Also, why would blind people go to youtube.
    They don’t know where to click right?

    @IamInYourClosett

    Your comment is very ignorant. They can download audiobooks etc on the internet. And “Your” is not the same as “You’re”, know the difference. Learn to spell before you get on YOUR computer.

    Captchas are very easy now4 screen readers to read. Just look at all the spam. I’ll admit that in the early years it did prevent spam a lot. But now it’s 2009. Well this vid is from06. Anyways they got to Make a new way to verify users 4 2010 and they can just charge for the blind to make accounts. Problem solved

  23. RobCottingham says:

    Griffon502, blind people use screen readers with text-to-speech features to access the web. It works well… provided web designers have kept them in mind.

  24. griffon502 says:

    thats ridiculous, how can blinde ppl use the internent? they can’t even see.

  25. RobCottingham says:

    Of course, Randy. Ever heard of audio distortion? (For that matter, ever heard of conversations that don’t include sarcasm? You may find they run a little more smoothly.) Audio CAPTCHAs are generally distorted for the same reason that visual CAPTCHAs are: to make automated recognition a lot harder.
