    cAN WE STOP THIS IDIOTIC CAPCHA

    I am tired of every two or three replies, answering the damned Capcha.

    And my eyesight is not that of a cat!

    It is like the Govt Reforms. Great for the forum, but damn lousy for the member!

    Actually we haven't have captcha activated. Please report if you still get Captcha. It should not come.

    It's automatic. It gets activated when it detects a suspicious IP. I'll tweak it

    :p

    Suspicious means IPs used frequently by spammers. Loads of spammers use Indian IPs, and since they're dynamically allocated by ISP it leads to huge number of IPs being tagged as suspicious

    Why does captcha need to be complex letters?
    Why not clearly legible?

    Because spam programmes are smart enough to decipher simple letters.

    THAND that is what it signifies!

    HopAlong Cassidy is the name.



    As portrayed on the screen, the white-haired Bill "Hopalong" Cassidy was usually clad strikingly in black (including his hat, an exception to the longstanding western film stereotype that only villains wore black hats). He was reserved and well spoken, with a fine sense of fair play. He was often called upon to intercede when dishonest characters were taking advantage of honest citizens. "Hoppy" and his white horse, Topper, usually traveled through the west with two companions—one young and trouble prone with a weakness for damsels in distress, the other comically awkward and outspoken

    Thanks LB.

    This time, I did not have to hold my breath!

    I am dead scared of these Captchas.

    I never seem to get it right!

    And so I am left out in the cold just like the land on my flag!

    Could it be tweaked to ask your age first, then skip it for >55?

    It could be a math captcha...to keep it easy for all.

    I was searching for ideas for captcha...and i found pic puzzle as captcha. They will show one image and you have to assemble image from provided slices from the same image...

    then there was Math equation solver captcha they will give some math equation and give value of variables you have to write answer...
