 > 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.

 We're actively looking into two things: fewer CAPTCHAs and a better
 CAPTCHA solution. The latter is pretty hard because we need something that
 scales to our size, works internationally, actually does what it says on
 the tin. We have made changes (with the help on Google) to reduce the
 complexity of CAPTCHAs being seen by Tor users and continue to work on
