I sometimes log into this site using Private Browsing for various reasons (or cases like now where I'm setting up a new browser and have to log in) and every time, regardless of what network I'm on, it makes me go through like half a dozen "click all buses" type CAPTCHAs - it's really tiresome, it ends up taking like 5-10 minutes to prove that I'm a human!

Unfortunately, that isn't something I can control. (I will report it though.)

You obviously aren't a good person :)

One problem with most Captchas is that they are usually American, so sometimes things aren't so obvious.
And how much of something has to be in a square? Does a square with the edge of a surround of a traffic light that's strayed over from an adjacent square count as well as the one with the rest of the thing?

I'm inconsistent with whether I pick tiny corners of objects in squares or not, or whether I count the poles of traffic lights etc which probably doesn't do me any favours

Yeah it is off putting. Google are trying their hardest to keep you browsing the web while logged into a Google account. If you are logged into a Google account the challenges are much simpler and there are less of them (if any). I wonder if it's worth making a throwaway Google account to use in these situations to save time.

The ones where they keep being replaced and reload really slowly are the most egregious to me :mad:o_O

I've only just realised that you can actually just completely bypass it... just don't tick the box...
