Discussion on: Submit forms without using re-captcha

I would be interested in the success rate of the delayed implementation. Also: I personally use hcaptcha. It an alternative to the Google data collection that comes along with recaptcha and even let's you participate in the revenue (these Captchas are training, after all)

Never heard of hcaptcha, will take a look! I implemented the delayed rendering along with the honeypot and spam rate is very low but I cannot tell which one boosted the performance, I think the honeypot removed the bulk of our problems, still think delaying the rendering was a nice approach to the problem.

It can be even more specific if I show the form only when users are approaching that section on the page using the intersection observer api.
