Will you add reCAPTCHA instead of the CAPTCHA you have now?

Question:
Will you add option for reCAPTCHA instead of the CAPTCHA you have now?
I have another form on my site with reCAPTCHA and I want it to be smooth user experience.

Answer:
No, and here is my explanation:
At first the idea sounded nice, but then I started looking into the details. That is when I discovered that reCAPTCHA does not allow for more than one reCAPTCHA on the page at one time. Fast Secure Contact Form fully supports multi-forms on same page. I have already included an open-source free PHP CAPTCHA library by phpcaptcha.org. I spent many hours customizing this library so that you can have many forms on the same page with no conflicts. Also the captcha I include does not require any API key to be registered, reCAPTCHA does.

I also want a smooth user experience and minimal support requests. The fact that reCAPTCHA does not allow for more that one reCAPTCHA on the page at one time is a major problem that would harm my users. Unless this limitation can be easily overcome in an updated reCAPTCHA API, I will not use it.

Smooth CAPTCHA experience on WordPress
I also am the author of a popular WordPress security plugin called SI CAPTCHA Anti-Spam that is fully compatible with Fast Secure Contact Form. It adds CAPTCHA anti-spam methods to WordPress on the comment form, registration form, login, or all. In order to post comments or register, users will have to type in the code shown on the image. This prevents spam from automated bots. Adds security. Works great with Akismet. Also is fully WP, WPMU, and BuddyPress compatible.
