Leaving ehMac - can't stand captcha every day

I am signing out of ehMac. I do not wish to spare any time or effort any more to keep clicking on captchas every time I wish to enter the site.


It has been a great experience for me these last so many years to have been a part of this community and I shall miss the interaction with so many people whom I have grown to consider friends.


Cheers and bye.

Sorry to see you go, Mohan. I still recall our short meeting in St. John's, NL. Stay well and stay safe, mon ami. Paix.

Also sorry to see you go.

I too sign in every time and have yet to tangle with one of those Captchas. I hate them with a passion so I can see how it would be frustrating. Wonder if my add blocker keeps them at bay, or if it's because you are not in North America?

I mainly use Tapatalk for ehMac and Iíve never encountered captchas. Must be a desktop/laptop thing.

I don't recall ever having to use any captcha when Login on to the forums, but then again, I hardly remember ever logging out.

Do you log out or have you tried not logging out???

Have you tried contacting the admin and see if they can improve the situation for you???

It may have to do with a geo-restriction. I've run into that with some sites when I was living in Mexico... but usually it just prevented me from even loading the site, rather than present a captcha...
