Can you please make the captcha easier for humans?

This is a feature requst to please make your Human Verification more readable.

I'm a human :-P and it usually takes me at least one mistake before I get a Captcha right.

The captcha's are really hard to read and I notice that I'm not the only one with this problem

I know that this is necessary but maybe instead you could ask a math problem with a simple answer? A lot of sites do that and if the problems are even simple computers can't make heads or tails of it.

In response to those who asked for an image :-)

I'm supposed to type fractions now?

Or Hindi

What is that second word

THIS JUST ISN'T small or localized its clearly happening across the site to a lot of people
