Hi everybody.

My very first post concerns the captcha which has just appeared on Slush's web site log-in page.

I was under the impression that these Satanic devices were intended to be solvable by humans but not computers.  Now it seems they are designed to prevent human access as well!

I was unable to log in using my tablet: the captcha is utterly unreadable.  On my laptop it took five attempts, and I think my eventual success was mainly luck.

I do understand the need to keep the scrotes out, but surely there must be a better way which does not also keep out legitimate users.

or even picture ones where you click a picture
and ontop of that theres the good old slider one wher you slide the bar until the picture looks correct you hit enter and your in
