No more filling in captchas on 4chan.
further reading says they try to guess your humanity based on whatever information they have about your browsing history/ip/etc
seems they don't have enough about me, which i'm ok with
>Please verify that you are not a robot.
All I can do is hit submit.
>Implement annoying captcha everyone hates
>Offer a hassle-free alternative in exchange for access to your info
>I don't have a google account
Oh I think you do.
What happened with the only sign numbers captchas? Those where sweet as fuck.
Now it feels like I get like three errors for every post. Did they really have to go so overboard on the distortion?
Nothing's foolproof. Just like they had paid solvers and then automated programs solve reCAPTCHAs, they will probably crack the code to get it to autocheck, if not, it will fill out the CAPTCHA as usual. Cat and mouse.
>i thought the point was to sell 4chan passes
The point of captchas were to stop douchebags and spammers from flooding the boards, not some conspiracy theory for Moot to make a few bucks.
Wow so instead of entering distorted text, I click a button, wait 5 seconds, then enter distorted text.
But then later instead of investing time into a smarter system that could stop giving a captcha to 90% of users he invested time into a 4changold account system to jew everyone.
Deliberately inconveniencing people to make them pay to avoid it is super greedy. It's good google is getting rid of this CAPTCHA profiteering.
I could make an autoit script in 5 minutes that would beat this shit..
Apply your own css style anytime this is included on a page using default class name.
Then a simple: find pixel color: #whatever, wait 5.3 seconds, mouse (right, down).
How would this even be a challenge unless I'm missing something?
I will say exactly what I just said again for you.
Apply a custom style. (an example would be using a colour unlikely to appear on the webpage(s) ) Have a script look for that color, wait a few seconds, then click it.
Here.. how to write a style tweak + autoit script to beat the new captcha in (less than) 5 minutes.
So from now on every time I click a capcha my whole browsing history, my favorites, my location, my IP and my posts on 4chan in scat trap threads will be forever associated with my google account which, in order to work on my phone, has my name, family name, phone number, address and credit card info?
So if I ever get a job interview at Google I'll be rejected because my most searched words are "underage boys being fucked by big dogs"? That would be unfair.
influx of newfags during Ferguson riots causing more people to activate the captcha at 4chan, thus triggering the distorted shit captchas
that's why moot hide the captcha until you start typing, to keep the hard ones from appearing
it finds your google cookies for your account and uses that as verification
use it in incognito mode and it shows the old captcha.
this does make it easier though for one attack because you just prepare a few accounts and then spam an auto click however they'll know exactly who you are and just ban the account
This. i use ff and chrome.
All my social media happens on chrome. All my 4chan/non conformist shit happens in ff.
It didn't showed me previous captcha in chrome but it did in ff. So it definitely checks for a google login cookie.
However i wasn't logged in at the time. i wonder however if i was using 2 different emails and logged out of both, and then i attempt to spam, which account will google block?
Its apparent to absolutely everyone that the results of moores law and advances in machine learning have rendered 'are you a computer' tests absolutely useless.
The only real way to tell if someone is a bot now would be to hold a 30 min conversation with them over skype and even then it's days would be limited.
Google have probably found that their Ai systems are better at solving captchas than humans and have recalled the system to save money.
The horrible thing is that this is only going to get worse. The bots on 4chan started by posting random links to pr0n but imagine a bot that could hold a passable conversation, infer your location and demographic then slowly influence you towards a shopping site.
That technology already exists.

we're a long way off that being affordable
If it's on such an advanced level that it's virtually the same as a human, why would I care? Just assume it's a human until proven otherwise and go on with your life, there is no point in second guessing everything. When you can't tell machines apart from humans anymore then does it really even matter if they are machines? I dont post on here to talk to humans, I post to share information and talk. If you are a bot or not does not matter one bit as long as you give me a dialogue that feels real.
Yes, because just as humans harbor hidden motives, the directives an AI is composed of would as well. And unfortunately, this proxy is likely much worse than what exists in other people. It's a matter of risk assessment and faith in the adequacy your theory of mind. It wouldn't matter from an experienced and functional standpoint, but it remains very relevant.
So all Ai programs have to have hidden motives?
Or could it learn them? If it had no incentive I suppose it could learn one. Perhaps an Ai would be just as susceptible to advertisement as a human.
I don't get how this is supposed to work. What is the "my favorite color" thing all about? Everything is greyed out for me, I can only click the button that makes me fill out a captcha anyway
>The idea is that, if the server analyses its records and decides you’re almost certainly a human, it won’t show you the distorted words at all. However, if the sever isn’t sure if you’re human or not, it’ll show you the words.
>implying nocaptcha is just changing the look of captcha
There's a whole lot of stuff going on under the hood. Not to mention anyone can use css to make captcha look like whatever they want.
