    Doesn't Vanilla 2 just leave out the reCaptcha if you don't add your reCaptcha keys in the Dashboard?

    YesI think some form of configurable Captcha would be good, perhaps similar to the Drupal plugin, where you can choose lots of options for image or question captchas. As I think I mentioned elsewhere, a Vanilla 2 site on an iPhone shows an unreadable reCaptcha image, which will make many interested visitors just leave the page.

    Vanilla stands for simplicity, so our goal is to find a solution that works and then not bother the admin or users with countless configuration options. There are other forums that do that extremely effectively. The problem with the iPhone is not reCaptcha itself, but that we do not have a mobile theme yet. The solution is therefore to finish the theme, not abandon a perfectly good Captcha system.My thoughts, based upon some years of spam annoyance, are; Captcha and email verification to stop the bots, email notification to me as Admin on new registrations so I can remove obvious spammers, and then reliance upon community members to report annoying posts.

    Email verification is something we're going to be releasing soon.

    On my board, it is forcing me to use recaptha. I didn't fill out any reCaptcha keys in the Dashboard, but I still have a link showing, in place of the captcha, wanting me to get a reCaptcha account. Any ideas?
