    What do you think of CAPTCHA?

    Although I understand it's useful in reducing spam, it's almost impossible for someone with problems like dyslexia to complete successfully.

    I hate it with a passion!  My vision is not 20/20 therefore some of the letter I cannot read.

    It should dissappear. while it was used to combat automatic filling forms, there allready exsist services which solve these CAPTCHA codes automatically.

    Depends on the CAPTCHA provider. Some are good and very readable while others I believe requires psychic powers to read. Try to upload a photo in tinypic.com and you'll see that their CAPTCHA provider is among the best I've seen on the web.

    I can't stand CAPTCHA.  I am convinced sometimes there is no right answer.  I think sometimes they just put jibberish on a screen and they are not even real numbers or letters.  Somewhere out there, someone is laughing about our attempts to login without success.

    I think the captcha is good for all. All the server would be down if there are no captcha because auto-fill bot would open millions of account or loads of requests to the server.

    Now a days most of the servers have audio-sound support with captcha which solves the vision problem. Also, most of the captcha has "new captcha" button which can change the captcha to a better readable one.

      Not always and the audio leaves a lot to be desired.  Some of them I get right the first time and it tells me that I didn't an have to do many.  After the third time I give up because then what I was going to be posted isn't important anymore.

    Sometimes CAPTCHA really sometimes hurt my eyes.. But I can't do anything since that is a requirement when you want to access or use the service of some websites.
