Honestly, I'd rather just not have CAPTCHA's period. Yes, it's kind of fun and silly to build a potato head but anything that introduces friction to do what I want at that moment is no good, imho.

We used to use this. Fit our demographic better than reading glyphs.We ultimately got rid of these things completely for many of the reasons @rrhoover mentioned.

@rrhoover, don't you think there are certain situations where a CAPTCHA is required though? For example, when checking out on an online store where the item is in high demand. I used to collect shoes, and Nike.com was flooded with bots before they implemented CAPTCHAs. It was impossible to buy any hyped up shoe because of all the bots.

@blakeir - true but ultimately, CAPTCHA's are a nuisance to users and may just be a necessary evil until there are better solutions (Twitter and Facebook auth have certainly helped).

i actually bumped into this on some random site - was confused initially, but thought it was novel. On a related note, I had no idea reCAPTCHA is being used to digitalize old books! What a great idea!

@LennsHu yup! Very clever. Although it's getting harder and harder to read them. Even worse: when they're used on mobile: https://twitter.com/rrhoover/sta...
