I HATE reCaptcha!

Grrrrrr!  I can't believe I've wasted 15 minutes of my life clicking on the i-am-not-a-robot captcha, just to leave a comment on one of my favourite blogs.


Examples of images with annoying street signs, traffic lights, vehicles, etc that are endless and impossible to solve.
I didn't get it right.
Failed again!
Nope, unsuccessful. Seriously?
Oh, come on!
Failed again ??? 


What???? How/Why is this wrong?  Now I am seriously pissed!

I hope my blog isn't giving you the same problem!  If it is, I have no control over it. Blame Google!

I totally agree Veronica. And when I'm trying to do it on my cell phone, its a no win situation. I rarely get them right then. I can say that with this comment I'm leaving, I haven't had to Captcha, so that's a good thing!

How maddening! I run into a similar thing when accessing my bank online. Their "security" questions are asking about a car I had 20 years ago! I don't remember the year of the darn thing!

I can't find this to do it, so I got tired of looking. I'm not good at these things either.

Some folks do make it hard to comment on their blogs. Sometimes I just give up.

Have a fabulous day, Veronica. ♥

Ok I had to laugh a bit at this because I go through the same thing and can feel your frustration :-) It's worth it though to connect with our friends and their lovely blogs, though I do hope they have an easier process soon! Hope you are having a great week otherwise!

Blessings,
Jill

I get that a lot visiting certain sites, after a while, I just don't bother visiting them again. Sad to say.

Your blog is very cool, hehehe. I liked it to my blog. Can you link my blog, too? https://ofmiceandramen.blogspot.com/

It also happens to me :3

Mellie said...

Oh I hate those too!! I have to keep clicking and it's always wrong. Ugh.

Meditations in Motion said...

Absolutely agree. I sometimes just can't figure out what answer they want me to give. Same thing with the letters and numbers you sometimes have to recreate. Is that a 9 or a g??? Ugh!

I absolutely loathe captcha. The worst ones to me are the ones that have letters or numbers in illegible fonts. Impossible to tell if they're in upper or lower case, and some letters look like they could be just about anything. Grrrrr.

I hate the letters and numbers. But pictures are bad too!

indah nuria Savitri said...

I hate it as well, Veronica! And the crazy thing is, we have to do a lot of this nowadays, hits. My poor eyes and patience!

XmasDolly said...

This is almost as bad as those little balls you have to get in the holes. Remember those little games you could hold in the palm of your hand & you had to get the balls in the holes. hahahaha Oh lordie, I hate these... mark me insane & take me away because not going to do these. I'd rather ride my bike then drive a car if I had to get these puzzles right. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr Girlfriend, put the puzzles away & do a crossword you have a better chance. Sending big hugsssss & have a great day. Thanks for stopping by.

I hate those picture captchas.

Claire Justine said...

It is not just me then, I hate them too. I spend forever sometimes trying to see them if I am on a small screen :(

Thanks for joining us at The Wednesday Link Up.

Agreed! It’s a useless waste of time!

YES!!!! This is so true. Re-Captchas drive me nuts and I can never get it on the first try! #trafficjam

Google comments seem to be having this automatically appear on a regular basis these days - I hate them with a passion and I'm hoping they're a passing fad that leave as quickly as it came. Mind you the letters and numbers with squiggly lines through them are just as annoying!

alissa apel said...

They are annoying!

I grow tired of Wordpress sites that take forever for comments to go through. I know Wordpress is the better than Blogger, but not when it comes to making comments. Like - go through already! Oh then I click on it again, and poof it's a duplicated comment.

Mary (cactus catz) said...

Oh gosh! Me too! They drive me nuts. To the point that half the time when a blogspot blog pops it up, I don't finish posting my comment. Especially if I've just done a recaptcha on a previous post that made me go through four or five attempts before deciding I was human. There has to be an easier way!
