Ongoing anti-spam efforts
We have been working with our E-commerce platform provider, Shopify, to make sure that our ordering experience is as nice as possible for everyone. reCAPTCHA is enabled for our checkout and is here to stay.
To make sure that some people do not get an unfair advantage we have implemented reCAPTCHA which is a service provided by Google and implemented by Shopify. Here's what Google says about it: "reCAPTCHA is a free service that helps protect websites from spam and abuse. A “CAPTCHA” is a turing test to tell human and bots apart. It is easy for humans to solve, but hard for “bots” and other malicious software to figure out. By adding reCAPTCHA to a site, you can block automated software while helping your welcome users to enter with ease". Hundreds of millions of CAPTCHAs are solved every single day.
Here at Misha & Puff we haven't yet seen signs that show that people have been getting unfair advantages, but that doesn't mean it hasn't been happening.
