What's the name of the plugin/theme?
-- requesting a CAPTCHA plugin of some kind because when I recently tried to use Contact Form 7 on the Commons, the form plugin indicated that we should have a CAPTCHA plugin installed. I believe it recommended "Simple Captcha," but it looks to me like "Captcha" is rated more highly and has been updated more recently. Here are the search returns for captcha on the WP Plugin repo

- [plugins] In a few words, what does it do?
helps fight spam by adding a security test before form submission

- How is the plugin/theme different from what's already provided on the Commons?
I don't believe we have one installed on the site already

- What's the potential impact? Who will use it?
anyone who uses forms. arguably, anyone using forms should really be using it.

- Who initially made the request? [sometimes Matt is passing along requests from members, sometimes suggesting something he found himself]

- Who is the plugin author?

- Say a little bit about the release history and popularity of the plugin. How many times has it been downloaded? When was it last updated? [The idea behind these last two questions is that I'm more likely to look favorably on plugins that are less likely to be abandoned]
please see individual plugin pages at the link above.
