Thanks for your reply.
I have taken this in consideration, But images take a lot of time to load
and sometimes
ReCaptcha images are difficult for even humans to read, also i18n in this
feature is pretty
simple using Translatewiki.net which I think will be difficult for images
(not sure).
About the 25%, if the attacks are too much than we can go for images, but
otherwise why trouble humans?
