the CAPTCHA protection prevents unattended downloads of Spin

Visitors of spinroot.com now have to go through a CAPTCHA.  I suspect this is to protect this forum from spam.

However it also breaks all scripts that automatically download Spin for installation.  Typically you get:

% wget https://spinroot.com/spin/Src/src646.tar.gz
--2017-05-24 18:15:14--  https://spinroot.com/spin/Src/src646.tar.gz
Resolving spinroot.com (spinroot.com)... 104.28.10.21, 104.28.11.21, 2400:cb00:2048:1::681c:b15, ...

HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 403 Forbidden
2017-05-24 18:15:14 ERROR 403: Forbidden.

Would it be possible to not put those tarballs behind such a protection?

Re: the CAPTCHA protection prevents unattended downloads of Spin

When I try the exact same command, it succeeds.
Must be something else that's triggering the error for you.
