Dear web developers and admins,
please stop embedding Google's hideous #ReCaptcha into your websites. Its algorithm is faulty, forcing regular users to click dozens or even hundreds of fire hydrants, bicycles, or traffic lights each day. It puts a 'suspicious activity' flag on users who won't obey to Google's business model - such as people who don't sign into Chrome, use anonymity VPNs, or use browser extensions to suppress common tracking mechanisms. Enough is enough. Stop it.

@kernpanik well, they don't add it for nothing. What other solution is good?

@lain @kernpanik A alternative proprietary solution which is not that evil to Tor users but is pretty similar to ReCaptcha is hcaptcha.com .The best open-source solution I've found so far is captcheck.netsyms.com which looks really user-friendly but I don't know how effective it is.

@nipos @lain @kernpanik we should not replace on central service with an other (hcaptcha)

thanks for the OpenSource alternative
