Recently, I noticed an increasing frequency in which I get presented with Captcha requests. In part, this might have been caused by me switching browsers or reinstalling my laptop. But still, thanks to their annoyance factor, it felt like I was getting more of them than in the past.

Imagine my surprise when I listened to the Late Night Linux podcast and learned that the flood of images of fire hydrants and traffic lights might actually be caused by my use of Pi-hole!

If that’s the case, may I suggest that Google change the prompt from “Are you a robot?” to “Are you a valuable ad target?”
