My thoughts exactly. I do like Mozilla and use Firefox. But, this made me a bit sad. It should be "opt-in". Or like you say, a 'nag screen/splash screen'. I feel these tech companies know 95% of their users are just using their products and don't care about privacy. Ok, I pulled that number out of thin air. But, IMO its probably the case. So, it seems a bit underhanded to take advantage of the fact that a lot of your users are uninformed.
Once again, its "opt out" not "opt in":
I was told once some captcha are words from documents, books, papers, etc... that computers can't figure out. So, the words are put in front of humans to help figure out what the words are. It has the dual benefit of keeping out spammers and helping to archive old documents. That is cool, IMO.

BTW. How much was the ticket?
I won't know till June.
I got a 120 dollar ticket in CT a few months ago for missing a mudflap on the trailer. The cop said that CT will mail me the ticket. Still haven't got it yet.
Yep, While I don't drive a 'big rig' for work. My work vehicle is heavy enough to need DOT numbers. I have to go through the inspections as well. Smile and be polite... or they will make it expensive for you. Its a shake down! The kicker is, the last guy that inspected my truck didn't even know the difference between interstate and intrastate. (I let him struggle with it. )
This is the the guy laying out the law on me! *shakes head*
I just see it being abused. Captcha is to stop bots. But, as soon as it starts making money off of humans we'll see it pop up everywhere! Over used just for the $. Solve this captcha to read this article. Solve another one to read page two. Etc...
EDIT: It was just pointed out to me that this article is 2 years old. So, maybe the idea never did catch on. Good!
Great a new part of the web I want no part of. They are turning the internet into cable TV!
This company wants to make a Capcha that IS an advertisement:
I didn't mind a Capcha now and then. And some Captcha's even helped computers figure out words in old books/documents. But, this advertising captcha just makes me want to crack it, or find a work around.
this is only if you are using Gnome right ?
I think the netctl and Gnome stuff were false leads back while we were troubleshooting. The netctl was the only error I would see. And the boot process would halt at the Gnome stuff. But, I'm leaning toward a intel issue.
Just in case anyone else runs into this, I'll save you all some log reading and troubleshooting. Adding "i915.i915_enable_rc6=0" (no quotes) to the end of your kernel line seems to be the fix.
Arch updates have been really good lately. Even with the transition to SystemD. I was surprised to see
the boot stall after this last update. Well, they will probably get it sorted soon. In the mean time the above kernel option will get you into your system.
