Well, it finally fucking happened.
Logged in or not, the botnet is requiring you pick out pictures of foods 100% now. No more OCR word.
The metadata of what pictures you pick will help jewgle make more expensive advertisements.
More expensive ads?
At first I heard the words were them scanning books, and I thought that was a good purpose.
Then the numbers were people's addresses, and I felt a little weird about that.
Why now food?
What the fuck is this? It plays a weird sound.
It's incredibly difficult for robots to correctly game the system of identifying images. Only people can reliably solve these captcha which is the basis of why captcha even exists.
If only there was some sort of way to search the Internet's web pages. It's too bad that such a thing doesn't exist, I bet someone could sell advertising for providing such a service.
The thing is, the images it has you searching for are all known. For example, I get a CAPTCHA that states I'm supposed to find all the cakes. There are only two images of cakes and only selecting one is too few and selecting anything else seems to result in a fail and i get street signs which have significantly more images that are similar.
However, what I just tried is if you select the two known the rest seem to be unknowns. I was tasked to select Sushi for this post. There were two images of sushi. I selected both and selected a third which was Mac n Cheese. I passed and was able to post.
That's the point, I would say. It has two verification and images and when an image isn't selected it's marked as "Not Sushi", so it doesn't appear in results for "Sushi pictures". If and when a non-verification picture is selected it's tagged as "Possibly Sushi" and being tagged as that more often, i.e. selected from the non-verified pictures makes it more relevant to "Sushi pictures" searches.
They seem to be related to cookies, if u av ur ff set to not store them the images will not show for the first post. After that (it seems to me) you store cookies and the images bevin to show. Easy 'hack' you refresh the page so you no longer have the cookie stored. Some times a simple refresh won't do it but hitting enter on the url bar will, at least for me.
