Google's reCAPTCHA favors – you guessed it – Google: Duh, only a bot would refuse to sign into the Chocolate Factory

Re: I despise CRAPTCHA

I contacted them by phone to tell them about the problem and try order over the phone instead, but they said they only accept orders via their website. Apparently they'd introduced the captcha because someone (or a bot) had supposedly conned them by placing a large order abroad but payment subsequently was cancelled leaving the vendor out of pocket. How precisely introducing a captcha was supposed to eliminate such cons I don't know. It didn't help that it wasn't even implemented properly; it certainly didn't work for me, so they lost my order.
