On numerous occasions when
using Google with Tor (yes, I know there are other options like
Scroogle) it claims I might be sending automated queries and gives
me a CAPTCHA. Sometimes this allows me to search; other times I
am caught in a loop and am constantly send back to the CAPTCHA
I am wondering why Google does not deal with this. I can understand that if dozens of people are using the same IP then some sites think "zombies" are being used. But if the IP is a Tor node then this is not the case. Google could surely exclude these Tor IPs.
So my question is: why don't they? What are the politics behind their decision not to acknowledge Tor exit nodes as bona fide?
