    There are some malicious users trying to game the faucet right now, and we are investigating the issue. The faucet has been taken offline until we identify the breach and deploy a security patch.

    As a noob, its great to see the Faucet back up and running.

    That said, is the google captcha necessary to block the scammers?
    I have a general aversion to google as a gate keeper, he owes me money personally, he owes 90% of Europe billions in tax and seems to think I should pay to have his rubbish cleared up. He owes the US similar amounts of tax. So I do not want to encourage such scum if I can avoid it. That’s my opinion, you do not have to agree.

    So google.com along with a number of google’s stalker domains are blocked around here, which makes the Faucet useless.

    Edit: currently I log in from another network to use the Faucet

    It seems to have hampered the gaming, so for now, it stays.
    We’ll continue to explore other options though, as this was a quick fix.

    Due to further abuse of the faucet by a select group of unidentified individuals, we have taken it offline again. We will be looking for a more permanent solution to address this problem, and I’ll keep you guys updated as we work on the issue.

    NHZ-DGR7-A2FV-9QHR-27QW9 is the problem account, and are also the ones responsible for the excessive dumping from the nodes.

    They are the same people who are / have been involved with Nhzcryptolizations and NHZADult

    Both scam assets. Polo has also had negative encounters with them.

    We’ve tried a couple fixes, both of which they worked around. Offline until we deploy another fix.

    Any news on this, or is it a dead cause?
