    Well, today it's getting even worse.
    SolveMedia now also has images that are impossible to solve for humans.
    Seems to depend on time of the day and European working hours seem to be reserved for exclusively robot traffic.
    I've posted a "letter" to Google on my FB page, but apparently nobody cares about that either.

    So just now I typed the words "weight kg convert" into Google and it just threw the recaptcha up. I have searched several other terms involving pre-ordering items over the past 5 minutes with no problem until this. I seriously hate Google.

    you're not alone...has happened to me frequently...and I use all different types of browsers; Edge, Opera, Firefox, Vivaldi, Safari or Chrome, doesn't matter which still trying to find one that works properly [but I fear it is due to Windows 10...never happened to me in Win 8.1; error = running short system memory, so browser crashes - 64 GB DDR4 Ram, yep, certainly short of system ram]
    Have had occasions where the 're-captcha from Google' opens up maybe 8 or 10 sequential images, but it ALWAYS fails...and that's just trying to save my search preferences

    Well, today they are exaggerating (I think).
    After I had figured out, you get easier reCaptchas when you are logged in to your Google account and you use Chrome for browser, I've done just that.
    Several 100s of Captchas later, where all seemed to be halfway fine, I suddenly cannot access ANY captcha protected site anymore, I'm just locked out, not only from reCaptcha but from SolveMedia as well.
    reCaptcha says something about suspicious activity, SolveMedia gives me an error 117B, both of which mean I got blacklisted.

    Now I do not use any form of VPN or anything, I only access about 2 dozen captcha protected websites and I refresh them every 15 minutes, I never use a robot or anything, wouldn't even know how to, meaning I solve roughly 100 captchas per hour MANUALLY and the ONLY reason why I got blacklisted is because I solved too many captchas.

    It doesn't get any more ridiculous than that, it literally means, websites protected by captchas lock out their most active customers, for the only reason that they are so active.
