I forgot to login today, and I was accessing someone else' repl to look at their code. However, I got this image.

When did repl make a captcha for their system? Its kinda weird to have a captcha system in a repl...

captcha systems are so that bots don't flood the site and DDoS or whatnot. Why is it surprising?

weird that they would use it not on the login page but rather in a repl? That is weird.

well they appear anywhere when the user isn't authenticated. Otherwise bots can just flood the site via a repl.

I'm pretty sure it's been there for a while. I remember someone having problems with their code because it would get blocked because it was a bot. I don't remember the context.
