    Admins, please.... please remove that annoying shitty captcha.
    Change it to something more user friendly (and XP friendly).
    Stop training google AI. I bet there are more sane and friendly options out there.

    I had really hard time registering :(

    Thanks,
    Borg

    I'm still in limbo since Friday. My first post is:
    "This message is awaiting moderator approval, and is invisible to normal visitors."
    Yet I see you posted on first day...

    Hmm.. Now some of my posts are making it through and some are "This message is awaiting moderator approval, and is invisible to normal visitors."
    I see no pattern. Read the terms & rules etc. Can't find character limits, posting url rules etc. Anyone have any info? Thanks.
    BTW I did not have an issue with Captcha, though I agree it is a pain

    Yeah, it's a url thing. Looks like the AI does not like to see urls or txt 3w's.
    Pasting a url or using the url insert button returns the same "awaiting for moderator approval" message.
    Or I'm missing something.
    Are these rukes displayed somewhere on site?

    Mr. Borg, not trying to hijack your thread. I was glad to see complaining to admins. Gave me the impetus to rant too. And just to reiterate, Captcha is a pain!!

    I was just about to post the same thing, CAPTCHAs don't even keep out spammers anyway.

    Best thing to do here would be to put something like "Q&A" with a simple question like 'What is the third number in the XP version string? (go to Run..., then 'winver' on a real XP machine)'
