Description:
The captcha is meant to be easy for humans to read, impossible for bots. Often the forum submission form's captcha is extremely difficult to read for us humans. This user-hostile feature of MySQL fora is unnecessary, it needs to be fixed.

An example will be attached.

How to repeat:
Submit a post to a forum.

Suggested fix:
Replace with a more readable readable.
