Maybe if you jew fuckwits weren't making brand new accounts every day you wouldn't have this problem. Stop making tons of sockpuppets and stick to a single user name.

Oh, I never knew that.

My kid used to run VPN's for better gaming speeds(we have really shitty internet) but when he used to do that I would get captcha's, that's the only time I ever seen one though and my kid stopped using VPN's like the next day. Maybe it's something like that though.

Like it might not even be voat doing the captcha's but Voats ISP or hosting company or whatever might have a thngy that sees numbers not add up or somethng because during that VPN thing it asn't just voat but everythng sent me to captcha's.

I have never encountered a captcha here. Just how many accounts are you making?

This would be a good time to list the safe captcha alternatives.

Things that use simple matching of bot illegible characters, using images of uniform data size, are safe if the answer is sent in a uniform data size.

You could narrow down the possible users using the time the packets were sent, but the amount of internet traffic passing through the ISPs would probably make that impossible. It is possible that the captcha servers could delay the loading of the captcha and use a statistically unlikely image data size, but in order for that data to be relevant they would have to have real time information on the entire internet to ensure their traffic was not sent at the precise time as other information of the same size. It would also be hindered possibly by VPNs that add superflous data, but I'm not sure that's a thing yet.

My understanding of how the internet works is actually pretty small. I was only made aware of Google's captcha tracking system by an insider who explained it roughly.

It’s a series of tubes!

Anyway, the captcha exploit as vaguely described still sounds like it would take a lot of effort and coordination between multiple corps.
