(Re)Captchas are annoying. It would be very nice if you never had to fill out another one if you were using Web Monetization. (The idea being that paying a little bit of money should be sufficient denial of service prevention that the website or CDN doesn’t actually need to know who you are to be confident that you’re not trying to DoS them.)
I can think of at least two (complimentary) ways to build this:
- Create an anti-reCaptcha browser extension that automatically pays people (via Mechanical Turk or something like that) to fill out the reCaptcha for you. This has the advantage of not requiring anything from website owners but relies on seriously underpaid human work and might be too easily detected by Google.
Thoughts? Anyone interested in working on this?
