Ind. Courts - More on: Indiana courts imposes anti-robot/CAPTCHA verification requirement on the public

Updating the ILB post from earlier this afternoon, a courts/crime reporter who relies on the service just sent this to the ILB:

As someone who checks the site dozens of times throughout the week, I am beyond annoyed at the inclusion of captcha on the website. Any word on whether there was a legit reason for it? Have robots or computers demonstrated a hot need for someone's criminal record to such a degree that they make the state's website unusable?

It's really, really ridiculous. I check Odyssey in the morning and throughout the day for multiple different things. It adds obvious time to each search, which is really an issue. I have a stack of names to search and am putting it off b/c I don't want to deal with it.
