 > I'm not sure how you come up with the 5% number but I think you
 underestimate how complicated deciding what R/O is in the web. Plenty of
 attacks come through GET requests. Doing the R/O mode seems like a nasty

 To me R/O would be delivering the cache that you have. The request would
 never see the actual website. This would also discourage adversaries that
 repeatedly pull websites to have an automated advantage at idk ticket
 sales as the cache does not have to be the most recent.

 I mean seriously. How hard can it be to deliver the cache instead of a
 captcha? I can't imagine that this takes one of your junior software
 engineers more than two hours to implement and then a day to deploy. But
 please give us better estimates, so we have an idea of what we are
 actually demanding here.
