Dear web developers and admins,
please stop embedding Google's hideous #ReCaptcha into your websites. Its algorithm is faulty, forcing regular users to click dozens or even hundreds of fire hydrants, bicycles, or traffic lights each day. It puts a 'suspicious activity' flag on users who won't obey to Google's business model - such as people who don't sign into Chrome, use anonymity VPNs, or use browser extensions to suppress common tracking mechanisms. Enough is enough. Stop it.

@kernpanik And, because you don't care about your users, bots can defeat it, especially if they can get some of the data Google has given out or leaked that was trained on the ReCaptcha stuff.

Just make someone do a basic maths thing like old forums.
