    Lightbulb ”are you a human?” i have dyscalculia and have big troubles with math.

    so couple days ago i posted a thread and i said how i get these ”are you human” things.
    i explained how i was very bad at those simple math problems and asked how i can get rid of them.

    people were very rude in the replies. they said i am clearly a spammer and i just want to get rid of them so i could spam better. people also told me how i was retarded, mentally impaired, liar and stupid and much more. there were a few supportive people in the replies though and i am super happy about it still.

    and then the post just disappeared. idk why.

    but you know what? it turned out i have this thing called dyscalculia.
    it means that i have big difficulties with math. it doesnt make me stupid. i just have troubles with counting and just so many other things with numbers.

    i just want to say that all people who were mean in the comments: lol why

    also i want this to change. i dont think its cool that people have to count things and then get muted for a while if answered wrong when some people actually have troubles with math. also it sucks if im chatting with friends and then this math thing pops up. it takes me usually a minute or to solve the math thing. and being quiet for a minute or two without saying anything is pretty weird.
    i wish i was stronger

    Hello Dear Gaysapiens


    I did read a lot of the replies on that thread. To be honest i did not expect people to behave in such a bad way. I dont know if you recall it, but i did reply on that thread. I dont remember exactly but it wasn't negative. I dont know what to suggest other than using a calculator on your IPad/iPhone/PC or a calculator in real life. I am sorry to hear about your condition :-/ It can't be easy

    I'm with you buddy.
    Having Google's ReCaptcha (where you just need to click a checkbox) instead would be better and cooler.

    i support you, perhaps the devs could add an alternate checking system, like one of the forumers above said, a captcha system, maybe with pictures?

    or just simply add a built-in calculator...

    It won't take that long to use it, to calculate the answer...

    And spam bots won't be capable of getting any use of it anyway...

    I think It'd be easier to just simply make a bot that can calculate the number captcha by itself, rather than use the built-in calculator to do so.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding.
    I wanted to prove that having to calculate stuff to prove you're human is useless, since you can use OCR to extract the equation, and use basic programming to calculate the result and type it automatically.

    Hmm... You live in finland you you say that suddenly you have been at school who knows how many years and just after your post you got diagnose in schools summer vacation? I doubt it. Sure this thing is not fun for those, who actually has it, and it is not fun that people who just aren't good in math, start say that they have disorders, just cause their talent is not math. (sorry if i am wrong in your case, but adds that this happened just now is low. Can you tell your age?) We all have different talents. Most of my friends who can write great stories, aren't good at math and me, who are good at math, can't get even a short nice story done. I'm actually worst writer what there can be. There is absolutely 0 reasons to be shamed, if your one talent is not math! Math skills doesn't show how smart or dumb you are. We are humans, all are different! I hate how people try say that math people are somehow better persons than no math people. That is huge lie. All depends what is your talent.

    I can calculate, but i can't write or draw. If i try do even stickman it is ugly. Actually worst in drawing. Does this make me bad person or dumb? Nope. And let me tell, me, who has always got almost best points in math test, almost failed in human test today! Yes, i can't focus things and there was 247+22 and guess what, i wrote first 368. How that is even possible?! Me? Rlly?! But yes, even i have problems in 3 numbers calculations, cause i can't focus. And no, that doesn't mean that i'm dumb.

    But as you see, even adult can make mistake in this. I can calculate in paper, but when i can't write calculations down, then i am screwed, for real. But well, same time i need say, i don't know how to solve spammer test in any other way so i can't say that they need remove this. Maybe there should be calculator like others say.
