I had to login to my account and after putting my account name (not my screen name) and password it has a simple math equation to make sure I wasn’t a robot
Seriously?December 10, 2018 11:01 am at 11:01 am #1640439
Only those whos schools skipped simple math subjects would have issue with a simple equation.
As far as robots go? Welcome to the real world. Just about everything done today has robotics built in to some degree.December 10, 2018 11:32 am at 11:32 am #1640455
Was the math too hard?
I do tutoring.December 10, 2018 12:13 pm at 12:13 pm #1640549
A math question is a lot better than some of the other “I am not a robot” verification schemes used on some websites. The most annoying is where they show you a matrix of 9 or 12 photos and ask you to check each one that shows a certain item (e.g. airplane, car, etc.). Problem is that trying to see on a small screen divided into 9 small photos is just about impossible. After 3 incorrect guesses, you are locked outDecember 10, 2018 12:23 pm at 12:23 pm #1640559
Takes2 and joe,
You missed the point
Why does Ywn need to make sure we’re not bots?
I don’t care about the math but to assume I’m a bot? I’m human!December 10, 2018 12:32 pm at 12:32 pm #1640577
I sometimes get that question and sometimes do not. In any case, I also find it very offensive.December 10, 2018 12:43 pm at 12:43 pm #1640589
AS A HUMAN WHO INGESTS OXYGEN AND DERIVES PLEASURE FROM CONSUMPTION OF FERMENTED VEGETABLES IT IS GOOD FOR ROOM OF COFFEE TO PREVENT FILTHY ROBOTS FROM COMING. CORRECT, FELLOW HUMANS?December 10, 2018 1:01 pm at 1:01 pm #1640610
Perhaps some of your comments in the coffee-room are very robotic sounding, so u got flaggedDecember 10, 2018 1:19 pm at 1:19 pm #1640622
I choose to identify as a robot and I am offended.December 10, 2018 1:45 pm at 1:45 pm #1640635
“but to assume I’m a bot? I’m human!”
that’s exactly what a robot would say.
what are they going to do when a robot that can solve 3 + 3 is invented ?December 10, 2018 1:45 pm at 1:45 pm #1640641
If I wasn’t a bot last time, why would I be one now?December 10, 2018 2:05 pm at 2:05 pm #1640663

Well, if they robots are frum, why can’t they post?December 11, 2018 8:04 pm at 8:04 pm #1642144
If u shake and shukkle like a bot ,u most likely will get flagged by the shukkle police.December 12, 2018 7:55 am at 7:55 am #1642301

There’s a bit of an interesting history behind the various Captchas, which
you can look up yourself. They’ve now developed a more convenient one
that looks at how you move the mouse to click the “I’m not a robot” box.October 23, 2019 9:21 pm at 9:21 pm #1794322
“Why do people who are totally not robots sound vaguely Russian?“
Dah, I mean nyetOctober 23, 2019 9:24 pm at 9:24 pm #1794325
It would be more appropriate for the YWN “bot verification” tests to have more of a yiddieshe context where the “correct” answers were only something a “yeshivish” yid would possibly know. For example, “please check boxes showing photos of Ungareshe gefilte fish” The only “correct” answer would be the photo of a 5 lb bag of sugar.October 23, 2019 9:35 pm at 9:35 pm #1794342

It’s ironic that a machine is deciding who is human and who is not.October 24, 2019 11:24 am at 11:24 am #1794444

Joseph” GadolH: Had you posted on YWN/CR a decade ago as “sammygol’??
Reb Yosef: Nope, I’m a relatively “new” poster on CR (several years but not a decade). However, your triggered my curiosity into my predecessor “sammygol” so I dug back into the CR archives and searched. One of the first postings that surfaced from back in 2008 was an apparent plea from one of YOUR guys with the screen name of chacham who demanded to know why the Mods allowed postings from a lengthy list of posters he labeled as apikorsim. Sammy, of course, was among the 8 worst offenders he insisted should be banned from the CR. None of the 8 are still regular posters here, so I’m apparently the last of the offenders still around (although unrecognizable as one of the lamid vov virtual CR tzadikim lurking).October 24, 2019 1:28 pm at 1:28 pm #1794462
Can a robot convert? What about an extraterristial?October 24, 2019 1:53 pm at 1:53 pm #1794530
Akuperma: Yes, but it can be very complicated with some unusual risks. For example, the mohel also has to be a licensed electrician in the jurisdiciton where the geirus is contemplated.October 24, 2019 10:08 pm at 10:08 pm #1794613
The Chacham Tzvi questions whether you can be metzarif a golem to a minyan. He says no, because it has no soul.
