I recall around 2005 when websites all started to use the captcha system (i think it was myspace who really used it on a regular basis, almost every
form such as sending a message, filling in ones profile etc was always demanding a captcha to be completed first)
Yes it was awkward and you sometimes got an a mixed up as an o or an l mixed up as an i, but that was it, and 9 times out of 10, any person could
easily make out the letters.
Now some websites such as yahoo hotmail have virtually impossible captchas to read, sometimes i find myself refreshing the image about 6 times until i
can get a new captcha which is barely readable.
Why do they do this, are spam bots that intelligent that they need to do this? or do they just like annoying people, either way i cant be the first
person to loose patiences with annoying `fill in the captcha` forms
