The award for most unreadable Captchas goes to Yahoo Buzz

I mean, what is this gibberish? Is the second character a Pi symbol or two letters? I’ve no idea. (It was not a “T” then a “l”.) And it often takes me two or three tries. I doubt I’m the only one.

    This one looks better than some I have fought with. Take the opacity down and make it blurry and put it on a neon colored background.

    I can understand them wanting you to type something to avoid the bots but tell me- have they come out with OCR bots that they have to make it difficult to read?

    • Yes, some bots can read captchas. That’s why they get more and more unreadable.
