Re: I'm no bot

normal people just don't get it

Well written rant thank you, and I've had the same for years. Fortunately we still have bank branches in the town nearby.

Some people are beginning to wonder whether they should be handing over all this personal information, but if it's not Google, it's Facebook and if it's not Facebook it's Microsoft, and if it's not Microsoft it's... well, there'll be another along in a minute.

I went to the "try it out" link in the article. I had to enable some Google script to get the thing to run, and then it seemed to oscillate between giving me scores of 0.3 and 0.7. Was it supposed to give me the "I'm not a robot" box to click, or the "identify the shopfronts" puzzle to complete?
