Hi [email protected]
I stopped using PA through my laptop a good while ago becausr I got fed up with captchas. My phone seemed the way to go as it most oftenly zig zagged through them...but now it seems almost impossible to even surf the site via a mobile phone as the pace is so slow it takes about 8-10 resfreshes just to get to a thread and don't even get me started on the frontpage, which I haven't read in 3 weeks...not for lack of want but simply because the fecker won't load. Other sites over the internet work just fine thrpugh my phone but PA is nigh on impossible to frequent.
It took me 9 tries just to open this thread.
Maybe we're just lucky to have a free site like this and I thank you for it, but I would like the opportunity to chat with my longtime friends and post a review or two without all the unnecessary hassle.
Also, hi everyone - maybe we'll talk next year!

TBH, I only get Craptcha with pictures in my first post of the day... after that , it's done for the day
 
I even opened a thread in the general discussion forum, and it didn't even need me ticking the box.
 
But maybe I shouldn't rejoice, because it can screw up very quickly again

Sorry I didn't read all 19 pages (and even hardly this page) but for the dozen or so comments I've posted in the last couple of days I've only had to confirm that I'm not a robot. Which is no big deal. Everything else looks normal too... on both iPhone and MAC - well except that hardly anyone posts anything. Have I been lucky?

From what I gather, I think that if you're surfing from an Apple machine, you're way less affected than others.

Maybe it's a marketing strategy, although no amount of captcha will make me want to buy one of those.

So today I got hit by Captcha when posting from my iPad, for the first time ever.  Apparently there is to be no refuge from this fecking sh*te!

Act now man... hear the cries of the forumites here...   they beg for salvation.. SELL.. SELL ...SELL.

I've been using my iPhone all this time and apart from the sloooooooooooooooooow pace of it these days, I have been somewhat untouched by captcha (but yeah I can't really use it anymore as I am too impatient to wait 10 minutes for a page to load).

BUT my laptop still gets hit by captchas with every single post I makeAngry I am really jealous of the rest of you guys, as you seem able to communicate without any hassle - or very little it seems. 
I even had a friend reformat my laptop and it hasn't helped one bit. 

I'll wager my cat's old knife collection on an upcoming captcha.
 
Edit: Yup 3 cases of identifying carsAngryDeadDeadDead

Feck this sh*te. It is simply not worth it.
