Reading these types of comments on HN, you'd think HN doesn't use Recaptcha for login/register. ;)

Easy to hate on Recaptcha while reaping the rewards of participating in a community that deals with less automated spam because of it. :)

> HN doesn't use Recaptcha for login/register

I just created a new account to check; not even so much as a Recaptcha url in the page source.

Hi there!

Really? I use a VPN most of the time and have not once had a captcha for logging into Hacker News.

I signed up years ago, and never have to login really, and have never see a captcha on HN. Not saying it doesn't exist, but I've had myriad captcha issues on other sites, but never once here.
