National CAPTCHA Act - Marcus for President 2012 - Bull Mosse Party

If you’ve been on the internet at all over the past two years then you more than likely have experienced CAPTCHA - "Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart" (pronounced /ˈkæptʃə/). According to wikipedia, CAPTCHA is defined as a type of challenge-response test used in computing to ensure that the response is not generated by a computer. The process usually involves one computer (a server) asking a user to complete a simple test which the computer is able to generate and grade.

Note the definition says ‘simple test’…this is complete bullshit. I have been taking pictures of these things for the past six months as the word combinations can be pretty funny and unless you are on LSD some are completely illegible.

My personal policy is to never go back to a site if they have shitty / pain in the ass CAPTCHA. What I think is sad is that companies are pushing the time burden and annoyance back on consumers vs. building better firewalls, security etc.

If elected your President in 2012 I will either ban this crap or put in place a law where you get paid by the companies using it for every time you have to deal with CRAPTCHA.
