Website Security Checks (CAPTCHA) really need to improve


I forgot my password in my LinkedIn and I'm trying to retrieve it. The security checks CAPTCHA words are not readable, c'mon two words to type is ok as long as I can read it. Here's a sample captured "security checks".

A little better compared to the previous CAPTCHA security, but still not able to answer the second word. Maybe I read it wrong. So I refresh again hoping to see a better words for security check.

3rd refresh:

Maybe, not my lucky day to get an easy two words security codes (CAPTCHA), so I gave up and leave the website.

How many visitors do you think have decided to leave after frustration of reading the security checks (CAPTCHA)? I have no statistic, or any reference to support this story, but I'm sure I am one of them.
