So they are going to profile our sites and decide for us who can enter.  Riiiight.  Not happy.

Now is the time for somebody to launch an alternative to reCaptcha.

Only if you add it to your site.
In fact even if you add it to your site they still leave the decision on what to do with that information to the site owner. That's the whole point of V3.

Plenty around. Theirs wasn't the first and there are other options.

I liked the original version that some university team created and then used to transcribe the back catalog of the New York Times. At least then I felt like I was doing something useful, but I guess computers got too good at reading those all by themselves.

Personally, I far prefer using proof of work or honeypot systems - very effective and don't annoy users.

Will reCAPTCHA ver 2 disappear automatically?  I've got some other options on my scripts rather than using ver 3.
