reCaptcha Enabled

permalink   Sun, Sep 20, 2009 @ 12:02 PM
Well it was bound to happen…

It seems my bogus ‘captcha’ methods (the funky ‘security’ doodad you had to type in every time you posted a review or forum post) was cracked by some account spammers and we’ve been scrambling in the background the last few days to clean up the site.

I’ve made two changes to the site:

- When a captcha is needed, we are now using reCaptcha which is a little tougher to use but very cool in that every time we use it, we are helping to digitize a book or old newspaper. (Seriously)

- If you are logged in and you have uploaded remixes or samples then you will not see the captcha at all - we trust you.

I am so happy that I no longer have to decipher the captcha!
