comment How does CAPTCHA mitigate DDoS attacks?
I’m going to accept your answer, because you made both important points: 1) CAPTCHA is an effective protection when checking it requires less CPU/memory than login, 2) in particular, it is effective when outsourced to reCAPTCHA; and you seem to be the first who mentioned that.
