    Never seen that. I’ll see now if that happens I guess.

    Anyway, despite being BA centric I still enjoy the Forum and all its eccentricities. Besides it’s nice knowing the people behind it as well as some of the posters. I like to think of it as a small and exclusive club unlike the other forums out there (which apart from the English Forum I don’t bother with) which are all rather faceless and impersonal.

    this is soooo strange… clicking on pictures in order to verify i am not a robot…

    I agree completely.

    We are looking at new software for the forum – discourse was recommended to us as one possibility

    I am posting from Perth and just had to fill in four captchas because of the unusual location before I could post this, so I share your frustration.

    Tom if you hang around a little longer the next set of pictures will be Aussie cricketers and you will have to choose the picturse that show ball tampering which means all of them !!

    Been putting up with it for some time, but I’m lucky if I can get away with three screens. Just now had to go through:
    Street signs – 3 times plus multiple clicks till they go away
    Buses – 2 screens
    Store Fronts + multiple clicks
    Bycycles
    and Finally 2 screesn of cars with multiple clicks

    10 Screens!!! The graphics are bad, can just about cope on my desktop but a nightmare on my tablet. I treid the voice option but it’s unintelligible.

    Please Tom, can you do something???

    I will certainly try. It hits me sometimes when I am travelling, but I never understand why since I am using the same device.

    I’ll add my voice to those who think it is a royal PITA.

    it is a pain, also means unless you are using a VPN in China the recaptcha does not appear

    It may be a good system for some but to have their questionable pictures means you can waste far too much time

    What really annoys me about reCaptcha…….

    How on earth am I supposed to buy my various passports and visas, or get my University Degree from a well-respected global educational institute before I fly off to impress my new found Ukrainian girlfriend with my new well-endowed wee willie winkie.

    It’s just not on …..

    As an aside, why does it sometimes let me submit without clicking street signs or buses and other times not ?

    It could be that it’s detected you are somewhere new (geographically), or it might just have detected and rejected a spam attack (which we still get) and so be on a heightened security setting, or if you have the settings on your browser to clear your cache and cookies, it might not recognise you, or if you’re accessing through a VPN or… or… it could be completely random.
