I get this at least once a day, I don't know if I will be allowed to post this comment we shall see.

I don't get any of those messages, but I do get other ones.

I find when I try to post twice in rapid succession that I get a "visual" second captcha

When ever I make an entry of any kind, I get the addition captcha and when I am linking a photo or a site I get the visual captcha as well. Once when I was trying to link to a youtube movie it just wouldn't let me.

Every time I try to post, I have to retry the math problem captcha once or twice. I didn't know I was so stupid that I can't add a total less than twenty.

Since I updated my profile and checked the "real person" box, I haven't even had the "capcha" box showing... maybe that's the trick?

The same thing happened to me. I checked the "real person" box when John informed us we could add our Rav profile and I haven't had to capcha since. I guess we were punished for being "fake" before.

I just read Darrel's response and I guess one had nothing to do with the other. Maybe it was a placebo effect...hmmm

It has been very sporadic. For a time, I only had to answer one CAPTCHA and wouldn't have any more for the rest of the session. Then, I had to answer one for every single comment and/or post. The last few days I haven't had any CAPTCHAs show up at all. I just put it down to however the lares and penates are feeling that day. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

I'm not getting any captcha at all now. I have no idea why. I couldn't find the "real person" box that was mentioned.

go into "My Account" on "edit"...that should give you a "user Profile" that and you'll see the real person box.

Thanks, Bill. I did it.

I was getting the Captcha every time, and even when I completed the numeric one, I would get the dreaded pink flag and then I'd have to do another numeric one plus a visual one. It was inconvenient, but not overpowering.

On this one, I didn't get anything initially, but had to do the visual captcha afterward.

No problems at present, although I sometimes get a CAPTCHA.
