Hey, I've noticed that, lately, this wiki's anti-spam tool is acting up again.  It's ''supposed'' to have users authenticate using two-word (Re)CAPTCHAs, but recently it's been using less secure two-to-four–digit numbers or one word for the (Re)CAPTCHAs.  Is this bad, or was this regression intentional?  <br />
