I hate recaptcha. Google wants me to help train their bots to identify cars, street signs and store fronts. And they use 2 steps. One of the steps is where captcha already knows where the objects is, and is actually used to check that you are human. Another one is used to train their bots.

Right now i checked that there is a car in the sky. And didn't check the actual car. Because fuck you, that's why.

@breton I do not hate reCAPTCHA. I ‘hate’ when non-Google web services use reCATPCHA. Those folks are the real problem. They are like ‘we have a spam problem, let’s use reCAPTCHA. It’s “free”.’
