The current capchas (cue recapcha v3) are pretty much against privacy.
Trying to get into any site that uses them with tor browser or just
blocking a lot of cookies will make it extremely difficult for you to
get in even though you are not a bot. So I don't believe what we need is
a capcha on site that requires login anyway. Why not rate limit by IP or
offer a cool off period of a day or a week to people who repeatedly try
to login. To be honest I don't solves capchas anymore because of Buster
. I also don't want to be training Google's image recognition for
What I would prefer? Questions for niche forums can be domain specific,
like Arch Linux asks you the output of a long command passed base64. For
a site that is not targetted specifically, a capcha like "2+4=x" is more
than enough. For sites like the one Manav mentions, a capcha is not
a solution since the service is already gated by login.
