So do I, in fact there are quite a few sites I cant get onto, because my security setting won't allow connections to a third party site, if a site has it all i get is a blank box in the middle of the screen, and I will find someone else to deal withThat's genius! I fcking hate Captchas
Very valid point. I understand the void that malicious bots have opened which Captcha/reCaptcha fills. I agree that reCaptcha is much, much better in concept, but it's spooky in practice TBH. And you're right, there's an opportunity for serious cash here... serious! But I'll put it out here coz I'm too lazy to go through the drama if it doesn't work out. If someone wants to take my idea, improve it, and sell it, fine by me.Sadly, about 90% of the web's traffic is bots - computers talking to computers. In that 90%, roughly 40% of that traffic is outright malicious. Because of this, there are times when CAPTCHA is the best defense. That's why it's widely used, as it's the best and cheapest way to defend against the malicious bots who'd fill your site with spam, fake orders, spam to contact forms, etc...
If you have a realistic option (and keep in mind machine learning is getting cheaper and cheaper) then you'd stand to make millions of dollars by making it easy to implement.
My preferred current solution is Google's invisible 'ReCAPTCHA'. You do the work while it resides in the background. It looks for things like mouse movement and the time taken to act on a page's info. Then, it may outright discard the activity or throw up a visual CAPTCHA.
Between that and a few other steps we'll be keeping quiet, I'm able to keep even WordPress sites spam-free. I'd otherwise have to delete countless spam messages. A small site will get *thousands* of spam attempts in a month. I have one small site that has stopped 73721 spam attempts in the past six months - and that's a site with maybe 35 to 50 visitors a day.
