    Back in the olden days I thought you were some sort of Turing Test.

    These robot gates are cheap and trivial to employ on any website.

    I think that what’s most likely is that ebay has suffered greater-than-usual (even for them) levels of robot attacks lately and is stepping up their defenses.

    I'm not sure it's very effective against robots.

    I just went onto e-bay ... got the "pick the right pictures" (no surprise) >>> Started ticking the wrong boxes.
    Every fail would give me a new selection. After about a dozen fails I did one correctly >>> bang! Straight into my e-bay.

    That's security for you.
    Does this mean a robot will never guess correctly?

    you’re not a robot?
    That’s what they want you to think.

    “Solving the puzzle” isn’t even how they detect humans vs. robots. Google, the makers of ReCaptcha v3, is killing two birds with one stone here: They’re letting you train their AIs to recognize specific kinds of images, which has commercial benefit to them, while also testing your mouse pointer movements for “entropy” (randomness) which is inherent in human motion but very hard for a robot to simulate.

    Guess what, I bet you anything that they have an AI making that determination as well. No citation but just a highly plausible guess.

    At least they're not asking for a DNA sample.

    Are you really who you claim to be? I am not. The whereabouts of the real Burntfrijoles are a closely guarded secret.

    I’m not a robot. I am a clone. I am the surviving clone of the Torren clone death match. The one that gave me the most problem was Torren29. That was one tough SOB.

    I thought this was going to be a thread about Cher.

    I have two amps that think they're robots.

    I read someone (here? Probably, this is the only site I go on) saying that their car dealer printed out the online credit application and insisted that they, the human being standing in front of them in the dealership filling out the application, use their pen to check the "I'm not a robot" box on the printout.

    Good for them, I say. @getbent isn't the only one out there. Hey Getbent, what word rhymes with orange?

    EDIT: OK after I posted this, being sure that it was some Asimov classic or something, I realized this is a way more obscure reference than anyone can reasonably be expected to know. Sorry about that, but in case you're wondering:

    Also, my grandfather referred to the microwave as "the robot" and pronounced it "the RO-bit." Made his oatmeal in the robit every morning.

    Yep. How do you KNOW you're not a robot?
    I mean, AI has come a long way, as of late
