Mancat Monday: Trying To Avoid Being Captcha’d with Brian

:

mancat monday brian 04262021

Howdy everyone, it’s Mancat Monday again and we know how much everyone looks forward to Monday. If you’re retired like our Mom and Dad then Monday doesn’t bother you, all days seem the same. Maybe it’s similar if you’re working from home too, other that you gotta work, but you don’t have to fight the traffic.

Speaking of fighting, the Dad has been fighting with lots of Blogger blogs this past week. That darn Captcha thing keeps popping up. Not just the check the I am not a robot box, the match the stupid pictures box. Plus the match the stupid picture thing is worse too. Now, for example, we’ve been getting pick the Fire Hydrants. So, you click on one, it disappears, another picture takes its place, it might be a Fire Hydrant or something else. Click on the next Fire Hydrant and the same thing happens. Sometimes it’s twenty or more clicks before I can leave a comment.

Last time I mentioned this several of you said that if I’m logged into Google I can skip this, nope, we can’t, not if we want to comment. I want you to know that I read each of your blogs every time you post. But if it’s a Blogger blog we’re sometimes spending 5 to 7 minutes just trying to leave a comment. So, if you don’t see a comment from us, we’re not ignoring you, we’re reading, but we got tired of fighting with the Captcha monster. Weird that it mostly seems to happen on Monday or Tuesday and sometimes on Wednesday morning. Just to be clear, several have told me we’ve turned it off. It doesn’t matter, Google turns it on whether you have it off or not.

That’s it for now. Y’all have a terrific Mancat Monday, I will see you again on Thankful Thursday. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Affiliate Disclosure: Sometimes I use affiliate links. What does that mean? It means that if I’ve used a product and liked it, or it's a company I buy from and trust and they have affiliate programs, I sign up. Then, when I mention that product or company in one of my blog posts, I use my affiliate link. Should you end up buying something as a result of one of those links, I might get a little sumpin’ for my treat fund.

That darn Captcha drives me mad too. Click all bicycles…I did, then again and again…then all the truckers…wtf! Meow Brian :-)) Cats are angels when they are asleep.

Memories of Eric and Flynn

That Captcha is a pain! It seems to turn itself on randomly on some blogs and then off again. It seems to happen about once a week on some blogs for a few hours then goes again. I haven’t had the pictures yet though. I did get them somewhere else last week though. I can’t remember where but think it may have been a government website. As you said, the pictures kept changing every time I clicked on them and it drove me mad! If it wasn’t important I would have given up.

Oh, we don’t like the captcha things either. We always end up with crosswalks or motorcycles. They are terrible!

I hate that Captcha thing and am almost positive I have it turned off, I just moderate all comments before they post to avoid the annoying spam. Always something to annoy us and – I’m pretty sure retirees like us get annoyed much easier LOL I know I do.

Oh, that’s a pain on the patootie, Brian. Ugh. Blogger is a pain sometimes (often), period, though the upside is that it’s free, so…. :-/

Oh, I hate those kinds of spam blockers, too. They never gave me that much trouble though. Yikes. Oh, and we’re retired. It’s so nice. I used to wake up Sunday morning (!) with a sense of dread over the coming workweek. Happy Monday!

That happens to me sometimes too. Though I usually get them if I’ve visited and commented on more blogs than normal in one sitting. We shouldn’t have captcha on our blog – we don’t get nearly the spam comments others do – so there was no reason to enable it.

We got that stupid Captcha thingy a couple times too. We hope you don’t get it on our blog.

What a sweet sleeping baby! The same thing has been happening to me with the captcha, it’s been driving me crazy! I’ve been fighting through it, but sure not happy about it!

Brian I 100% detest those stoooopid pictures. Once I clicked the pictures incorrectly so many times I guess I timed out or was put in time out.

I hear you on the Blogger blogs. I’ve had the same issues now and again. I spend to much time online as it is and with Blogger doing this I’m spending way to much time. I’m almost ready to throw in the towel on the days they do this to us. Glad I’m not alone. Awww, Brian knows how to do naps. We retired here too and we don’t miss all that traffic to and from work everyday. Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.                             Have a fabulous Awww Monday and week. Scritches all around and my… Read more »

Same here! I feel bad not leaving comments, but I’ve been getting captcha’d too. Doesn’t matter what device I use either. But I stop by and read just about everyone!

Hey babes….LIke Mom and Dad, I am retired, haha, that seems like a joke. I am semi retired I guess. I have not been to town on a Monday morn in over a year but that looks like it is about to change. I will start back a couple of days instead of the one, but by June maybe back to my four days. Working in photography and venue work with that! haha….I have not had any issues with blogging other then for the past couple of months I can’t get on yours by clicking on you from your comment… Read more »

Sorry you are having so much trouble. I have that problem once a week for 24 hours. I don’t know why.

Gosh what a silly thing with Blogger and Google…….We occasionally – VERY occasionally – have to do the fire hydrant thing or the traffic light thing or whatever. Not all the time though. Strange the hoops people have to leap through on some blog platforms isn’t it???!!!!!

Good to see you Brian. This happens to us every now and then but not too often. We hope it gets better. Try our blog?

At least you can post comments (if you want to work for it!). I had to change browsers completely for commenting because blogger just ate the comments and didn’t post them on the one we were using. I don’t think Google considers the Blogger format a priority.

I’m so sorry…….I have a Blogger blog and guess what? When I comment on other Blogger blogs the same thing happens to me!!! Ugh!!

You’re so cute – and those paws! Squeeee!
We ran into some of those picture thingys, but haven’t seen one in a little while. It seems to be really random as to whether of not one appears and we don’t know why.

Yes, we have the same trouble! Sometimes we look at the pictures and hope we are finding the correct squares because there’s no note saying what we’re suppose to be looking for. Very confusing and time consuming!

The Captcha gets me sometimes too for no reason. Never know when it will be turned on.

I encounter that every now and then not just in blogs, but in forms I have to fill out for work. So frustrating and time consuming!

Gosh, that sounds very frustrating, Brian!
Maybe a Google search…I know, I know…will help you find answers on fixing some stupid setting or something.

Sweet picture of the napping fella. I haven’t had any captcha problems actually, no captcha stuff showing up. Hope it stays that way.

I am sorry you are having problems with the evil weasels who run the Internet. There is no dealing with them. Sometimes you have to wait until they get tired a move on.

I get that Captcha thing sometimes too, Brian. But somehow I can get through it. It is a PITA though.

Those captchas are a pain, if mine comes on, i am sorry and you can skip commenting if it gives you a pain.

Love your pose today!

Big Sigh! Blogger is driving us nutso too! And it is not just Blogger…its their other products too! BTW, we have found the least intrusiveness is Firefox or Brave as the browser (Apple or Windows) with DuckDuckGo as the search preference. Brave is a really new one and I am likeing it a lot on the Apple equipment.
Besides the Captcha problems, when we scrolled down, the Amazon ads were Life of Brian (the movie) and 3 decorative Fire Hydrants!
Using Safari, Chrome or Google has been brutal. I don’t open them anymore.

I hope my blog isn’t one of them even though I don’t post on Monday or Tuesday. If so, I’ll send feedback to Blogger axing for the 311 on why this is happening.

Chaplin: “Too bad Dennis isn’t around anymore, he would totally ace a CAPTCHA about fire hydrants.”
Charlee: “He sure would! Hey do you know what CAPTCHA stands for?”
Lulu: “What?”
Charlee: “Completely Automated Program To Confound Harmless Animals.”
Lulu: “…. Are you sure about that?”
Charlee: “Of course. I’m a cat.”

Who has time for that stuff, we sure don’t?! We hope they can get it fixed.
