What about accessibility and Google’s questionable data protection?

… As for data protection - I suppose it could be an issue for some - but considering how pervasive google is on the web along with how many websites already use google analytics and google ads - I'm not sure reCAPTCHA is contributing much difference one way or the other in the grand scheme of things.

I think you are right, the range of the data collection of ReCaptcha is much smaller than of Google Analytics, Google's font and code hosting and so on. But in the first place I think we should not support the data collection at all, when we are able to prevent it.

In the past I used ZB-Block from spambotsecurity, which worked perfectly for years. The original author stopped supporting it awhile back - but it's development has been picked up by someone else so while it's a bit of a kludge to configure at first it is definitely the best protection against spam I've ever used.

As far as I know, Alfie used ZBBlock himself for several years. He will know, what you are talking about. :-)

Tschö, Auge
