As I'm going through tagging questions as discussion, feature-request, or bug (as requested by Jeff), it would be awesome if I wasn't subject to CAPTCHAs. So I humbly request that there be a developer flag that can be placed on a user that will prevent him from getting the CAPTCHA.
It would be done after talking with the user and getting his agreement not to bot the site using his account, and would be a convenience feature for users who do manual retagging.
Edit: In response to the account being compromised, there are two scenarios.
- compromised by CSRF, which SO already protects against
- compromised by a knowledgeable malicious entity. I think this case is equivalent to a user's, moderator, or administrator account being compromised. The damage will be done at a faster rate, yes. It's up to the user being responsible.
In response to someone going postal and not agreeing to honor his word: I didn't expect the flag to be set very often, only on a dozen or two people. Jeff already trusts many of us with the keys to his castle - those with ♦'s, Greg debugging the data dump, and so on. I see this as no different. The few people who have proven themselves as valuable contributors retagging items on SO are perfect examples and candidates.
