What are the downstream effects of constantly being expected to provide incorrect answers in order to pass captchas?
More and more I'm running into ones that require me to misidentify an object to pass (mark an RV as a bus, caution lines as a crosswalk, a mail box as a parking meter, etc) because the "system" has that image incorrectly identified.
Are we being conditioned to accept the computer's version of truth, or are we causing the computers to become less effective at identifying similarly shaped objects?

@observer Or are enough people feeding bullshit to the Captchas that the notion and presumption of crowdsourcing detection and trainin is proving false?

(I typically spend a few minutes feeding bullshit answers myself. If I don't immediately close the tab/window.)
