    The short story: Is it possible, through an add-on, template mod, ect.. to require a captcha to be entered in order to view a thread under a certain node?

    The long story: The Site Directory for the forum I administrate, AKA my boss, would like to know if it's possible to have a captcha added to threads under one of our forum's nodes. In his words:
    So, is this possible, or do any of you all have another possible solution to help with my bosses concern?

    It's going to hurt his search engine rankings, basically the site will have no public content as far as the search engine is concerned.

    Robots have the same permissions as guests so you could revoke access for the unregistered user group.

    He only wants to do this to the threads under one node. All the rest would still be fully public and crawl-able.
    While this would work against the robots, he still wants unregistered guests to see the threads, assuming they're human.

    It would require custom development/an add-on.

    I honestly figured as much since it kinda goes against what a forum is suppose to be used as. I'll pass the word onto him. Thanks for the help.
