There is no evil like reCAPTCHA (v3)

I would go so far as to say that being subjected to constant reCAPTCHAs is actually an act of human torture and disregard for a person's human right of mental comfort.

To solve what was (at the time) an epidemic in and of itself of bots, reCRAPCHA was born. Google came to the rescue of all, as was arguably their responsibility because they were the ones taking it up the rear the hardest from such bots.

How long it takes to now solve these things has increased due to completely deliberate and specific choices that Google has made in reCAPTCHA v3.

reCAPTCHA is just the worst. It's almos everywhere, and annoying. It fuels an entire industry of professional captcha solvers.
