More hoops to jump through?

Recommended Posts

I've had to go through 4 sets of controls to access the forum, picking traffic lights (2), chimneys and pedestrian crossings. Is there a problem with trolls on the site, requiring extra vigilance, or have I just missed some aspect of each of the controls?

I had to identify images with buses in them, so at least Alamy give us variety in what we have to look for (meant as sarcastic humour). First time had to do this though for quite some months.

I wish they would let any robot on the forum.

 

I just loved those posts about how to make money by growing cabbages in my garage, and selling them over the internet.

No hoops at all for me today for some reason, but yesterday was like jumping hurdles -- storefronts, bicycles, crosswalks, every trick in the bag.

 

BTW, does anyone else think that Bill might actually be a robot? B)

Bit confused by the hoop jumping you are mentioning. I know what is being referred to, as I have done it myself, mainly, when forgetting to tick the 'automatic log'-in box on the sign in page.

Do those of you having to sign in not have this option on your systems? I'm using Firefox on a Windows OS.

 

Ah, brain cell just sputtered, Firefox. has a, 'save password for this site?', option I'm using, which prefills the required fields and lets me in on tapping the sign-in button.

Safari on my Mac's will enter my user name and login, sometimes without issues. Other times I have to identify multiple traffic lights, buses, stairs etc. Often the definition of the images is very poor, so you can't tell if the blurred distance contains what you should be identifying. Perhaps that's why you have to jump repeatedly through so many hoops.

Just managed to get it without jumping through hoops ! Safari on a Mac - think at least they would make the images festive;)

I just had mountains or hills. They are the worst.

I've only had "mountains or hills" once or twice. As I remember, it was brutal. B)

 

The odd thing is how inconsistent the security system is. Today I was again let through the forum door with no robot check at all. On other days, I get caught in a viscous circle of reappearing storefronts, traffic lights, buses, etc.
