Isn't there a way to take PA off the hands of [email protected]? Must we migrate en masse to ProgEars? Or trying to buy a new PA brick by brick?

Its on my lottery winner bucket list.

There is no act more pretentious and self-indulgent than labeling another's art as pretentious and self-indulgent.

Were there any emoticons or hyperlinks in the quoted text? If so, remove them, if not, just hit the back button on your browser and try again.

I usually now only get cap'd when I post images, though occasionally with regular posts.   It has improved, but one should never post something they put thought into without saving it.

^A cold comfort that I am not the only one who suffers from this. I had to writhe my way through a quite a deck of poor quality images earlier this day: 46 clicks, Access denied, post again and then a dozen more Disapprove.

Edit: 32 more + Access Denied + x. These captcha's are a progressive disease Censored Angry!

I've been having much worse than usual problems the past couple days as well.  No posts get through without at least 2 permission denied screens and I've been run through check box hell multiple times Unhappy

I find that clearing my cache regularly helps. I use the free version of CCleaner.

I once also thought so - but eventually time proved me wrong

I've read that it hits people more depending upon what kind of sites they visit (for instance, those who frequent porn sites might get hit harder by Captcha).

That said, there does seem to be little rhyme or reason to it. For a long time after it was implemented, I wasn't getting hit at all. And now, despite my efforts (and I don't visit porn sites), I get hit a lot (at least I don't have to remember to save posts as I can just backspace and keep trying, or go back to my post and the text is still there). It's a pain, and I often have accessibility issues in different parts of the site.

I find that a post with just plain text will get through first time. Any sign of a quote, smiley face or hyperlink and the captcha police will nab you straight away.
