Hello, as an idea how to combat T232992 I read about an idea to add a captcha for the 3 articles that are affected.
My idea is to recognize when an IP makes a lot of calls to a few articles.For that formula calculates a number (e.g. stupidly defined call_number_of_last_hour divided by called_lemmata_of_last_hour).
If this number is over let's say 50 (50 calls and one article or 100 calls and two articles) a captcha is switched before the call. If this is successful, the call counts and the captcha is not displayed for the next X calls.
