of course there are other solutions. it is more important that whomever decided to implement captcha be allowed to continue to torture envato customers than it is to do whats right for the business.
i should move on from this subject as i have moved the bulk of my business to dj, but i still cannot get over how absolutely disregarded i have been. here is a link to the latest captcha that i had to content with.since i come to envato sites less and less i now encounter captcha every time which makes me visit even less. tell me that this “human detection method” is anything other than utterly insane and customer-hating: http://dvmod.com/envato-insane.jpg
im seriously considering doing a full blown website on this subject
hating captcha here too
it happens quite often that i think “lets shop at envato” but everytime i see that i have been logged out – for whatever reason – and i have to login and fight with that damn captcha which is 8 of 10 times absolutely impossible to read, i just go somewhere else to get the things i need.
You don’t solve your security problems by putting a 3rd-party-security-plugin into your page – and especially that freaking stupid captha.
