So hCaptcha's "accessibility" mode means "Give us your email!". What the hell? No! :(

"We'll send you a link to verify you're human". What? No seriously, what?

@kirby everyone else gets to "choose every picture with a bike in it". Seriously no. No no no!

@talon Their website lists:
Privacy Focused and Better User Experience. Hmmmm.

@talon They pay websites in fucking cryptocurrencies for using their captcha thingy. Oof.

@kirby yeah... that doesn't sound weird at all. And all CloudFlare sites use this captcha now afaik. I don't like this one bit.

@talon The hatred of captcha companies is on if those thing that unite us all. It used to be writing a few funny looking letters or listening to a voice saying the code. Now it either wastes your time, funding busses for 10 minutes straight, making them fade as slowly as possible, invades your privacy or both. :blobfoxangry:

@talon Shitty business model. If I was them, I'd ask for credit card numbers. Bots never have those, after all!
But more seriously: What the fuck?
