Description : implementation of reCAPTCHA and Mailhide in Python
This Python modules provides a plugin for both reCAPTCHA and reCAPTCHA
reCAPTCHA helps prevent automated abuse of web site (such as comment
spam or bogus registrations) by using a CAPTCHA to ensure that only
humans perform certain actions.
reCAPTCHA Mailhide allows to obfuscate email addresses such that the
original email address is delivered only if a reCAPTCHA is solved.
This plugin uses a free (as in free beer) web service that requires to
register to get an API key. On the other hand, no imaging library or
complex computation are needed to generate and check CAPTCHA.
