Comment (by aperture):

 FYI, I encountered a 8 recaptcha loop while signing up here! I entered the
 wrong captcha initially, and I think the "redirect on success page" got
 set to `/projects/tor/captcha`. When I successfully completed the CAPTCHA,
 I still got redirected to the captcha page.

 While I'm talking about reCAPTCHA, it is pretty much an open secret that
 No CAPTCHA works by collecting as much information correlated to 'bot or
 not' as possible, and feeding it to a neural network. Google has a nice
 source for 'bot or not' by looking at deactivations of the Google account
 registration flow.
