Die CAPTCHA inventer DIE!

I absolutely hate captchas.  It’s nice that sites try to block spammers and all but passing the responsibility on to the user in such a difficult manor isn’t the best approach.

For example today I needed to enter one just to enter my google account.  No problem except for the fact that the damn thing was even less legible than my hand writing.  They also have an audio option.. I thought great someone finally made them reasonably usable to the visually impaired like myself.  Well their sound was so muffled I couldn’t tell the letters from the background noise.  Thanks for nothing.

It only took me about 10 tries to get in by trying to read them holding my magnifier to the screen.  Thanks for the inconvenience and waste of my time.
