Fucking captchas Anonymous (109f) 4638
I see a lot of people are complaining about this so I want to better know the full extent of the problem. What I want to know from as many people as possible is: how often you get this and how much (or how little) does it annoy you?
The reason this shows up is because we use a system called cloudflare, which caches a lot of content making the site load faster for users across the world, but also adds some security restrictions so that those who are seen as threats (spammers, bots etc) have a harder time getting in.
Now you might say "But I'm not a bot or a spammer" but the system can't make the difference easily, they look at IPs, and if someone in your IP range is a threat, then you are marked as one (you're basically collateral damage in the 'battle' between cloudflare and the threats).
Now I have to options:1) reduce the cloudflare settings even more so only the most critical of threats run into the captcha
this is not something I'd like to do but depending on how big of an issue it is for you, it might be the best solution2) customize the captcha page and add a message saying - please post in >>>/site/ and ask to get whitelisted
As some might know you can ask to get your IP whitelisted, so you don't run into captchas anymore.
For some users that might be a definitive solution, while to others it might be a temporary one (until they IP range changes)
So answer the questions I raised above so that I know better how big this problem is, and based on that I will take a solution to reduce (or eliminate) the problem

Just lurking isn't the solution, we want people to post!
In the case where you or anyone else is blocked and can't post at all, you will need to email:

Someone do something about this bullsh!t. I bet this reply/post would need another one of these captchas.

Every single time i post anything (except not on my phone oddly) its a bit annoying especially when combined with the "this post looks automated" i though i could be white listed asked but still happens.
Ill probably get it again

I'm actually fine with the captcha issue on my computers and phones, using the WiFi connection in the office and at home. My problem though is my 3G and 4G connection for my phones. Every time the captcha appears, I'll enter it and I'll receive the error "You Did Not Make a Post". So, I can't even post with them on >>>/site/
to get whitelisted.
Perhaps, I'll try getting the IP addresses of their mobile data connection later cause apparently, Google can do that for me. But if that doesn't prove to be a solution, then this is the problem I'm stuck with.
Ok. I've reduced the cloudflare security settings.
I've also made a made a custom captcha page where it makes it clear it's an error and has a link to the thread in >>>/site/
where you can ask to get whitelisted
