Comment (by tarmick):

 signed up because i saw this today: motherboard.vice.com/en_uk/read/the-

 just signing up on torproject required me to solve 10+ google recaptchas.
 it's insane. i had to solve google captcha to talk about google captcha on
 a tor site. why can't we at least be safe from the nonsense of it here?

 it's one thing for cloudflare to care about solving tor (which i think
 they do, by way of engaging here) but it's another for google to do
 something about their captcha. i just don't understand why cloudflare
 doesn't use something else or something special for tor users. It's pretty
 clear google either do not care about Tor users or they can't because
 their security solution doesn't scale well.

 is the google recaptcha team engaging on this discussion? is their "threat
 level" linked to cloudflares? or do we get shit listed on both and have to
 deal with both constant captcha (cloudflare) and shitty impossible captcha
