Description (last modified by mikeperry) points out that the captcha redirect message confuses users and is filled with jargon. It should either go away, or be reworded.

Replying to mikeperry:

Since startpage provides Google search results, I am leaning towards simply disabling the warning entirely and always redirecting.

When I do a search on google, it's because I meant to do a search on google. Making me automatically and retroactively have done something different would indeed make me unhappy as a user.

Summary: Eliminate/reword Captcha redirect messageReword Captcha redirect message

You're right. In my rage, I forgot that the same captcha url format is present for news, images, etc... Otherwise I'd totally do it. I really can't stand that 403 message, and nothing is worse than pulling the lever on having to solve 3 captchas or just getting outright banned. It's like the worst slot machine ever... I'd rather play "The Lottery".

If you said WHY you are redirecting, rather than merely that you are redirecting, users would probably be much more willing to tolerate said redirect.

This message is gone. Now that startpage is our homepage and default search engine, we've removed the captcha message entirely.
