The new captcha was just rolled out there.

new captcha!!!

There seems to be no issues with it, but there is no need in "I'm a Human Being" button. If you click it without doing anything else, it will lead to an error:

(which is understandable - I didn't solve any captcha)

If you click the checkbox and pass the verification, this button is automatically greyed out and shows black dots; in a second captcha is gone.

(Similar behaviour will be if it asks you for text: once you solve it and click "verify", captcha is gone, no need in "I'm a Human Being" button)

So I feel that this button should be removed.

  • If anyone knows, could you press Enter with the previous method while typing the letters?

    If that wasn't there, Aliens would make it past that screen. Aliens.

    Only a robot would claim to be a "Human Being". Real humans know enough to say they're not robots.

This button is there for scrapers and bots that click submit buttons automatically. We want them to get caught in our nasty web of lies.

  • Ok, but why not make it display:none then

    "This button is there for scrapers and bots" I swear! I'm not a bot! Maybe some mischievous being, but not a bot.

  • It needs to look as much like a typical form as any other on the internet - with a visible submit button. Dec 5, 2014 at 21:52

    Funny trick... But only imagine, what if Community is reading it now... It will brake all the things there.
