        I hate to complain but is this “Am I a Robot?” thing really necessary?  I did the test once to Sign In, then again to do a simple reply, and now I see that I’ll have to go through it again to send this!  Oy vay.

        We’re having that changed right now.

        The “Am I a Robot” challenge should appear when you first register an account, and when you post an anonymous reply. In all other cases — including logging in — you shouldn’t see it.

          UPDATE: The reCaptcha has been dropped on all but first registration, and anonymous posts.

            But I’ve just had to go through it, in order to log in and post this! I’m lousy at these I’m not a robot quizzes, anyway – I can never figure out which pictures to check. I’m sure the average robot could do it better.

              They put it on then took it off for those of us registered. I ran into it too, but it’s gone for me now.
