Submission + - Ticketmaster dumps 'hated' Captcha verification system (bbc.co.uk)

another random user writes: The world's largest online ticket retailer is to stop requiring users to enter hard-to-read words in order to prove they are human.

Captcha — which asks users to type in words to prove they are not robots trying to cheat the system — is used on many sites. But Ticketmaster has moved to ditch it in favour of a simpler system.

Ticketmaster is now using software created by New York start-up Solve Media, a similar service that asks for well-known phrases, or simple multiple choice questions.
