Seriously a Captia to post on the forum?
« on: March 31, 2019, 06:46:35 AM »
I am geuss Avast missed the memo that google has proven captias dont work and only anger end users who are often faced with captias you cant read.  I attempted to post a couple responses to try to help out a few people in the VPN section - the new service Avast is attempting to scare their customers into getting..

Only to be stuck trying to post because after 15 tries, I finally gave up... 

Like who thought up of this?

I think Captain Cat is also saying it’s also for trolls protection as well.
