    hi all,

    i really tried my best to find some automated way to solve myspace captchas when using friendblaster pro. my conclusion: there is no such thing at the moment, unless you have access to a supercomputer :)

    so i looked around and found this site: hxxp://www.fbphelper.inf0
    they are offering a little application that sits around and waits for captchas. when friendblaster encounters a captcha this little tool automatically gets the captcha-image and transfers it to a human. this person solves it, the code comes back to the application, which automatically puts it back into the input field. i tried it myself and it works like a charm! of course you have to pay for this service, but it's kind of cheap. you can get a solved captcha for a less as 0.02$ when buying 30.000.

    and that's the main point of this posting: i have some ethical concerns: there are real persons sitting around and solving captchas for 0.02$. let's assume the worker gets $0.01, the rest stays at the service-provider.
    even if the worker manages to solve 1000 captchas a day - he's only making 10 bucks. that smells like exploitation.

    on the other hand: it's a job and who knows which dirty jobs these guys would have to do otherwise... or is there really a supercomputer sitting on the other end solving my capchas?

    what do you think about this whole topic?

    Look at it this way - if this person weren't solving CAPTCHAs they would probably be working in a field for $5 a day instead of the $10 they are making. They're probably happy to solve CAPTCHAs. just my $0.02.

    I agree $10 a day is better than nothing at all. I will check out this site today and support these guys if i like what I see.

    I guess you'd have to live in India or China to make it worth while then. Hey if it works for them, more power to them I say!
