Andrew, there are two ways to read your ad. I interpret it as "a lot of work, we are overwhelmed, wait". Which is not necessarily good news, because the month of April was to be hot following the announcement, but that in fact, it was freezing for the same reason. Certainly, I am a very small client, I am well aware of it, but nevertheless I still have a site which only asks to turn and behind, customers that I must leave vegetate because this update does not does not happen and for this reason it is difficult to keep them. Really hard to stay motivated in these conditions you know? I believe everything you say, except the announced deadlines, because they are never respected and it is not in weeks that must be spoken but in months. I have a dating site and both ways of communicating, mails, and messenger each have a serious problem for months. How do I keep my limbs? I do not mean the custom modules I absolutely need, it's the same, the deadlines seem infinitely repulsed too. So, I see a lot of my friends' sites that are "out". It's a shame because they were motivated people, is not that partly the cause? Sorry to be so critical, but I have to expose my problem somewhere, otherwise one day my site may be "out" too.
Regarding the problem of spam, does not ReCaptcha prevent it? Or is it possible to work around it? Why is not he present on your registration form?
