Hello Asker "mom",
The way the "reCAPTCHA" bot has currently been deployed is to require most users to answer it when posting their answer, and sometimes more often than that; so its deployment assumes we are all bots.
A notice on this website states:
"This site is protected by reCAPTCHA...":
The "reCAPTCHA" is a "bot" designed to exclude automated apps (aka bots) that abuse websites.
"reCAPTCHA" is supposed to be designed to "kick-in" if it detects strange internet activity indicating the user could be an "app", but unfortunately it is activating every time, every user, clicks the "Submit" button to post their answer. More often actually, because it can also activate while drafting an answer !
This cannot be an acceptable way to be treating users, so I hope there will be a change to rectify this issue as soon as possible.
Here are a list of possible alternative reasons for every user having to answer the "reCAPTCHA" bot:
It's inflation: The two points you get for answering, are worthless - each day, so there has inevitably got to be some sort of payback !
Alternatively, Yahoo Answers has possibly made a deal with a firm of opticians, designed to test (or ruin) your eyesight by forcing you to look at numerous poor-quality pictures.
Alternatively-alternatively, Yahoo Answers has possibly made a deal with a firm of psychiatrists, to see how much stress the human mind can take before finally deciding to decamp to social media ...
I have the solution for everyone - We all get magnifying specs so we can see those fuzzy images - - more clearly!
Issue of "dark-censorship":
Another Yahoo Answers issue that I hope will be resolved soon is that any use (e.g. correcting simple typos) of the Edit/Submit function (when available) on answers, causes that answer to be removed from public view. My affected answers appear to be present only while I am logged-in, but are not present when logged-off and having reloaded that webpage !
I have seen at least one answer from a different contributor that said that it had been edited and obviously was still visible, so this issue may only be one that unfortunately, affects just selected-individuals.
I once tried using the Yahoo Answers alternative appeal procedure to ask for a particular missing answer of mine to be restored (no violation notice by the way): I got the incident number and the follow-up email with just the additional case number, but, no further response !
Issue of error message stating: "undefined":
A further Yahoo Answers issue that I hope will be resolved soon is that, frequently upon trying to post an answer, having done the "reCAPTCHA" bot, an error message in red is then displayed, stating:
The "undefined" error message also appeared when attempting to post text that had been saved in simple "text" (".txt") format with no URL's (internet addresses).
Yahoo Answers would benefit from making available a means of communicating with them for reporting technical issues with their website, but they do not !
