Comment (by madD):

 I'm a voluntary user of Tor for a long time, and also a forced user of
 CloudFlare ever since they launched on us their business model.
 Having read the complete thread just want to say following.
 Just like cypherpunks, usually I want only to read stuff, so for me
 captchas really are another form of digital harrasement. Had to solve
 about a 10 of them to get registered at Trac. And because my post contains
 the word "business" i got:

 Captcha Error
 Submission rejected as potential spam

     Content contained these blacklisted patterns: '(?i)business'

 Serving malfunctional javascript captchas for years can hardly be
 attributed to stupidity. I believe it even less when I read the company's
 CEO's LinkedIn.

 So Mr. jgrahamc, are captcha's part of Government Technology? Why is
 javascript so necessary. Do you measure per click reaction time? Do you
 correlate it with previous data sets? With enough signal gathered, can you
 then establish unique profiles of people?
