We just incorporated it for security against fraud through our donation forms (at MobileCause), and it works very well. When a user IP is blocked because of potential fraud, instead of blocking the IP completely we require that the user go through reCaptcha to prove they're human. In testing it's worked very well.

Phrase (multi word) passwords are ...

So I actually did my Masters thesis research on the default zoom level and level of detail that users prefer when working with way finding and identification tasks. Overall, users tend to prefer a large scale map (more zoomed in) and a generalized view (as opposed to satellite imagery). However, there are exceptions to this. When setting the initial zoom, ...
