Figured out why GMail doesn't take captchas (I think)

    I tested this 3 times, obviously not on a massive scale. I opened gmail to create an email and it wouldn't take the captchas, they were 100% perfectly readable, tested this twice and it wouldn't take it. After that I decided OK, and this time I scrolled down the terms of service on GMail's website and each time it worked 100%. I think they are checking to see if you checked their TOS and if not they reject you a few times and then let you through. Test it and feedback.

    Btw: Not sure where to put this as it doesn't relate to anything really.

    Noone even wants to attempt to confirm this? I tried it a few subsequent times and it failed once but after hitting submit I realized that an r shoulda been an l.

    Hell, you could be right. With the google, who knows?

    I have a couple of theories, myself. Can I prove them? Not really. It's just stuff I've found, like you did, that seems to work for me. Whether it's because it's true or just because I'm wearing my tin-foil hat, remains to be seen.

    My theories are...

    After entering the CAPTCHA, use your mouse to click on the button instead of hitting the return key. I have a lot more 1st and 2nd try success with the button than by using the enter key.

    That kinda goes along with your scrolling theory because, you have to scroll down to near the bottom of the page to get to the button. Now... which one of us is right? Or, are we both right? HAH!

    I also have a theory about why the auto account creators don't work so well. I think they can see the CAPTCHA being loaded twice. Once in the browser and a second time in the iFrame. Seems to me like a dead giveaway it's an auto account bot.

    Of course, I'm quite sure neither of us will ever invest the time or resources to fully prove our theories. Even if we did, one thing is for certain; the google WILL change something to muck things up once again.
