Enter DCaptcha, a question-answer challenge tailored for D
programmers. Its goals are to challenge posters of
suspicious-looking content with questions that should be easy
to answer to D programmers, and impossible for non-technical
people with no incentive to learn or research stuff (i.e.
spammers). DCaptcha is already in use on the D wiki
(wiki.dlang.org), with great success - DCaptcha's debut cut
the short-lived explosion in wiki spam to zero.
I think this is a bad idea because developers new to the
will be turned away. Also i think a lot of these 'easy'
are just too hard. I've tried the demo and found it fustrating
that i need a few trys to get them right.
Got it. But we're not going back to reCAPTCHA either. I'm tired
of deleting spam by hand.
Please suggest some ideas (or better, send pull requests).
