It's not just Macs. I have

It's not just Macs. I have it happen on my PC as well, and I am not math impaired. But there doesn't seem to be a discernible pattern as to when it happens and when it doesn't.

i have a mac. even when i select the pre-offered correct answer it happens. i'll try tilting. maybe lack of alcohol is the problem.

I'm lucky...the public

I'm lucky...the public computer I use most often has an Accu-Compute feature that offers you a list of possible answers to click on. Most of the time, though, I switch it off. My tiny peeve is that it used to let me answer one captcha per session and then never require another for the rest of the time. Now, however, it asks for one for each reply I type in - or edit. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Yeah - sure. Every time. I don't know, everything is a bit different here in the parallel world of "Mac". Thought it was just me.

It happened to me once and I was confused, but in my case, I added instead of subtracted, so it wasn't the captcha's fault. LOL
