Het is erg vermoeiend als de drogist, nagelstylist, of supermarkt het prive-hemd van je lijf vraagt. Meestal lekken die gegevens, dus het is handig om daar een persona voor te hebben met gegevens die weinig kwaad kunnen.

Mumen Rusto: “Ceci n’est pas une Captcha.… “

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/04/01

Every site should present this as a captcha today.

Via [WayBack] Mumen Rusto on Twitter: “Ceci n’est pas une Captcha.… “

The captcha is by [WayBack] Senior Oops Engineer on Twitter: “Captcha: select all squares that contain a pipe Magritte: 😓”.

He posted it about 2 years ago as [WayBack] Senior Oops Engineer on Twitter: “oh fuck oh no… “.
