Recaptcha in contact form

Post by Jesper Møller » Thu Jun 27, 2019 7:14 pm

i think it would be nice tho have the possibility to set/activat a recaptcha in the birds contact form

I have several timesexperienced that someone trying to send what i think is mails to multiple adresse. they don't seem to have success but i get annoying notification mails.
i think a recaptcha can help to stop this for me and others (i don't think I'm the only one where they try to use the form for spam/advertising/scams

This topic has been already discussed to death in the past and the consensous was highly negative, hence my downvote.

Use an extension instead.

And reCAPTCHA is suspect anyway IMHO.

This is a NO for me.
Users sometimes contact me via the contact forum because they can't solve the captcha... Very strange, but true. So adding this in the form will be a problem for those users :lol:
