Default Prove to Us that You're Not a Robot


By now, you've tried to access something online and had that little Gotcha screen come up. "Prove that You're Not A Robot". Usually, you have to look at a series of pictures and choose the ones that have STOP signs in them. By now you realize there's not guy sitting in an office Jersey verifying your responses. The very program you're trying to persuade is itself a robot. So, you're really trying to prove to a robot that you're not a robot.

Can we not see how retarded that is? World War III begins when someone develops a robot that proves to other robots that he's not a robot, even though he really is.

I don't see anything retarded about it. The code that verifies that you're not an automated script was written with positive intentions in mind. The automated scripts (called robots or bots) that may register on websites usually have one purpose: to create problems (by either spamming or inserting viruses into the site).

So like wait - does this mean WW III has not yet started?
