Right now I am getting solve times of 78 seconds, seventy-eight seconds!!! And out of 1000 captchas sent, 300 were rejected. That costs me a shitload of money and time because now I have to run again OR settle for less links. This isn't at their daily 10 minute maintenance period, it's just because they are shit! I propose in the interests of FAIRNESS that their sales copy on their homepage be changed from the following: An incredible low price of $1.39 for 1000 solved CAPTCHAs. to We charge approx 20% VAT on all orders for all european users. That means approximate cost of $1.67. Then, since our actual solve rate is about 65%, our real cost per 1000 solved CAPTCHAs is (1 / 0.65) x $1.67 = $2.57 . Note that this is almost double the advertised cost, and it's what people pay IN REALITY. $1.39 is only a fantasy price. In more negative language, it is an outright LIE. The only people who profit from their shitty captcha solve rates are deathbycaptcha themselves. They don't even bother to get a freaking payment processor which does not charge VAT, so we have to pay VAT for CAPTCHAs (what the hell). Then comes their constant FAILING . They are ALWAYS conking out these days. So unreliable and service is so often in overload with ridiculous solve times and huge CAPTCHA rejections. So they should change the following sales copy from: An average response time of 17 seconds, with an average accuracy rate of 90% or more. And you always pay for correctly solved CAPTCHA only! to Our response times often go up to 100 seconds and our service is very often in overload, this means a lot of your CAPTCHAs will be rejected and your postings will fail as a result. We do not pay for this so it costs you money, but we don't give a shit so you can suck our VAT charging sweaty indian manual captcha typer balls. Our actual accuracy rate varies from 60 to 70% but you will get charged for our advertised accuracy rate of around 95%. This is because we have no way of knowing from your software which CAPTCHAs were correct or not. That means you always pay for incorrect CAPTCHAs! I am not trying to take a shit on DBC here. If you look at my changes to their sales copy above they are actually reflections of the TRUTH rather than the LIES on their website. I use their service often because they are better than captchabot which has success of about 10-20% and is basically a piece of dog shit. CAPTCHA services these days are like being stuck between a rock and a hard place. CAPTCHA SNIPER was a nice idea, but it is not stable to use 24/7 and WILL cause RAM overload / freeze your server from some error or another.
