Captcha...................GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

So now we have to pass Captcha quizes to add private channels?.
WTF is up with all these websites adding the "I am not a robot" thing?
I HATE IT.
Doesn't work. Robots can actually get past it, so what good is it other than to raise blood pressure?
PLEASE do away with this Roku.

How many do you add a day that it raises your blood pressure?
Yeah, I got some Rokus.

The point is it's not needed.
Period.
Would it matter if it's one or 10?
It's a ridiculous technology that has been proven not to work.
I wonder how corporations would react if I added a "Captcha" feature on my credit card transactions?.

It certainly works for some kinds of bots. It's silly to say it's been "proven not to work".

That's easy.  They would just reject your credit card.
Please attempt to maintain a thin veneer of civility.

Re: Captcha...................GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

Mauiman is talking about adding channels, not creating accounts on the board here.

All companies have to walk the line between keeping customers happy/making their lives easy, and keeping out spammers/bots/others who might exploit their systems. I'm okay with this.

Re: Captcha...................GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

Seems like the website is broken. Because Everytime I go to add a channel, it wants me to update my pin, then it says there is an error and have to relogin. Then you have to start over at the add channel page and it works.
