ReCaptcha is broken on Dev.to

From time to time w see a lot of spam flooding Dev.to.

There is a button to report content and users for that and it’s working well, along with recaptcha, on desktop but not working with mobile.

On mobile when trying to report anything I got like 10! Seriously 10! Different recaptacha prompts to resolve. There is even more, but I, and everybody else in same situation, who tried to report spam through app simply give up.

It’s time to look at it if you prefer people to help you keep the site clean.

Maybe it’s time to move to hCaptcha?
