The above two answers appear to be in conflict.

JS itself doesn't do that.

Cookies, from and restricted to the site itself, are fine, the user
can manage their sessions with the site.

If reviews hold, and it never gets backdoored by whoever later on.

Both good and bad can come from human and bot.
The list of three tech above does not address that.

In fact, there are no humans or computers evaluating, moderating,
or even terminating, any user metrics or content ongoing in depth
with a site anywhere in the list above. The list is just stupid low
effort uncreative kneejerk... captcha solved, or not. Pathetic.

Meanwhile the captcha's get solved (and coookies loaded,
JS interpreted, extensions calculated) and the fun continues.

And Tor users still have to (if not outright blocked) wade through
say up to 100 clicks over 10 puzzles, multiple resets over in some
cases, to in some cases still end up getting censored the ability
to simply READ the world's text. That's wrong...


In this and former threads some people suggested various other / more
effective and humane solutions than a dumb front door lock.
And there are some projects detailing others...
