Re: [tor-talk] Google reCAPTCHA

Google recaptcha seems to of banned Tor Relays entirely. I do not think
there is as much abuse of Tor Relays as they seem to claim.

One thing you can do is ask the sites you use to use a different captcha
technology. If they refuse they are probably not a website that you want
to trust anyways.

I'd love to see non-profit, ethical alternatives to the big sites we
currently use.

One platform, YouTube, would have bad effects if they banned the Tor
Network (they probably make too much from adverts to do that).
