We are still actively working on the spam issue.
Jesus christ, why do we need Google Captcha. Besides training evil AIs, it is a nuisance of a service that doesn't work right. --Se7en(1) (talk) 23:50, 30 December 2018 (EST)
I absolutely agree, but look at Recent Changes, we still have some spam getting through... without it, the wiki (and db) would be inundated with spam. If you have a better option/idea to fight spam on MediaWiki please I am open to suggestions...--Bananafish (talk) 12:54, 31 December 2018 (EST)
