I know that captchas are used to prevent people using scripts or some bots to train. They are everywhere. I even start to use https://de-captcher.com... to avoid them. They are annoying, agree?

To be honest, I think captchas should stay because they prevent hackers or psycho weirdos from getting into the site! Plus, I think they're fun because you have to look at the image and type out what the image is saying, which is like a quick little mini game!

I agree with the OP. I understand that the job of captchas is to try to prevent spambots from flooding comment sections, fora, etc. But even with the presence of captchas, spam is still posted. All captchas succeed in doing is annoying actual end users.

I really hate sites that require the use of captchas to post, even when you're already logged in!

Yes they do annoy me and mainly because they never ever ever ever state "input is case sensitive" or "input is case insensitive".

The internet is littered with code and sites that were written by semi-competent hackers that's why so much technology today doesn't quite work, it almost works but there's always "did you try setting..." or "have you installed the latest..." or "are you running with IP4 or IP6?" or "try resetting the unit" and on and on and on.
