Is anyone else getting this message when replying to a forum post ?

I understand we need to reduce spam in the community, but I've only seen this in the last few days.


Or maybe it's because my IP has been changing too much recently - I was logged in at Inspire.


Any ideas from anyone ? (hopefully how to prove on a permanent basis that I'm not a robot ;) )

Hi @cmcclellan,


You are correct, we've only recently enabled this feature. We’re a big enough community now to be targeted by spammers and scammers, so we’re taking measures to reduce that type of activity with captcha and other technologies.


We know that captchas aren’t always the best experience, but it is one of the tools that we have today to combat nefarious activity. We’re exploring additional methods that may have less impact on the experience. Thanks for your understanding and patience.
