The future of CAPTCHAs?

Alex Christie

27 March 2008

The purpose of a captcha is affectively to stop spammers filling out forms online and flooding your inbox with untold tripe! KittenAuth is a new, novel and much more fun thing to do than trying to dycpher an group of letters in a box.

It’s relativetively easy for a computer to work out CAPTCHA these days.

So instead why not "Click all foals then click submit" before filling out your next form – Genius!
