No, it's plugin material.

More context: We are trying to make WP Core less reliant on external services, not more. Example: #16020

(When closing a ticket, it would be nice to either explain the reasoning or link to a place where that's already been done.)

it would be nice to either explain the reasoning

  1. Core has no use of it.
  2. CAPTCHAS ARE HORRIBLE.
  3. CAPTCHAS ARE HORRIBLE.

When closing a ticket, it would be nice to either explain the reasoning

When opening a ticket, it would be nice to include more then 5 words and a link.

  • Resolution wontfix deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened

Pros:

  • Captcha - less spam
  • Less work for Akismet
  • Less spam/fake users... (when giving the right to anyone to register you can get hundreds of fake registered users, from China IP's :D )
  • No more automated sign-ups, when log in to show captcha

Cons:

  • Less comments
  • Ruin the design
  • Recaptcha gives horrible words, using an alternative would be better

So you see that more pros than cons, please I want another opinion...
reopening...

Install a plugin. Most people hate captchas for good reasons.

There are smarter ways to fight spam than CAPTCHAs, like Cookies for Comments.

Not all sites even have comments enabled, so they'll have no use for reCAPTCHA in core.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
