    Default CAPTCHA

    I know that the CATCHA verification is here for security/spam reasons, but is it really necessary that the users that have been registered here for a long time be bothered with it? Or what is the reason for it?

    I never see it unless I've cleared my cookies. Do you see it every time?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I don't clear my cookies at all. I don't see it when editing a post, but I see it every time I answer a post or create a new one. The thing is, that I don't see that well and it sometimes takes me 3 or 4 tries to get it right.

    Hiya,

    Sorry, that was due to an error in the usergroup permissions for users who were connected via Facebook. I've updated the permissions now so you shouldn't see CAPTCHAs again, and you should have access to all the features that a normal user would have (with over 10 posts).
