    Trying to sign up a google analytics account for a web site today (thankfully not my own), but keep running into this annoying error [first image]. Have tried 2 different machines, different browsers, different OS, with 2 different IPs (different ISP). Perhaps the catchpa part is broken today? Annoying as HAL from Space Odyssey.

    One of the Captcha is attached [second image]. WTF is that? Who does quality testing? I bet 99.9% of population cannot figure out that useless google catchpa.

    There are better catchpa such as math problems or picture matching that are easier for humans and harder for bots.

    The links from the first image are:
    Antivirus link: download.com/Antivirus/3150-2239-0.html
    Spyware removal link: download.com/sort/3150-8022-0-1-4.html

    I am really curious... Q: What do you think is the answer of the Captcha?

    Torment??

    [Edit: Remove quote and adding new guess(es). Didn't realize it didn't have to be an actual word.]

    "TowMoreMat" d'oh... :rolleyes: It's the catch phrase or tagline for a welcome mat moving company that went bust when the dot-com bubble popped in '01.

    Hum, sort of close but not exactly TowMoreMat.

    I have undistorted the image a bit. Will post that in a day or two after I see what other people come up with.

    I had to exchange certain vowels and consonants in the pursuit of stupid humour. My bad.

    It looks like "titillate" to me, but then again, I'm always thinking about tit.

    Well, your stupid humor seems to have hit a lot closer than the rest of us did with our best guesses! :confused:

    Well that's natural for most people. =p

    I wonder what kinds of ads google will deliver if there are enough keywords about tit, tits, or titillate.... ;)

    Looks like 'tammormat' to me.

    I strongly dislike captchas that do not use real words.

    It doesn't exactly have to make sense... I don't think that's a word.

    Well, thanks for all the tries. I am pretty sure it's not a word.

    I've done some quick un-distorting of the image. It's still hard to figure out even with that.

    The low IQ system still thinks I am a robot =(
    Where can I submit a feedback about that?

    Looks like a winner based on your "un-distorting" - if that's even possible with this one :D

    There's an analytics discussion board where admins help resolve issues when they're in the mood. Good luck getting in!

    P.S. Please ask them WTF that "word" is supposed to be!

    Yeah I think Darth.Titan is right.

    Thanks for the link.

    Last night it took an hour to figure out how to enable international orders via the google cart. Some of those things need to be more user friendly.
