One day last week I started getting the CAPTCHA 'I'm not a robot?' screen when posting on mse. I know I'm not the only one as another poster asked about the same problem on another thread.


Looking at my history I'm obviously not a spammer so no idea why.


It's incredibly irritating and if I forget to do copy and paste the post can be lost (and we all know how annoying that is!:mad:). I have to verify that I'm a human and sometimes it publishes my post first time, sometimes it doesn't.


I'd appreciate a response and an explanation please.

    Has MSE engaged Cloudflare in the anti-spam war, and if so, can it be turned down a bit?

    I've had this for the last few days, it's driving me nuts. I always preview my posts, I have to tick the 'I am not a robot' thing. Then I submit the post and have to tick again then click all pictures of boats/houses/whatever.
    Bulletproof

    hope they do reply/help maman,
    got to admit it's very annoying & time wasting on MSE
    when this keeps happening :(
    I visit lots of other sites & never have half the problems
    MSE seem to have.
    please be a responsible pet owner & spay/neuter your pets, too many strays & not enough homes for them sadly. k2u58ioz4c8e.png

    Have you actually contacted MSE or just posted it on here ?

    That does not absolve MSE Admin of the need to reply to Users questions on their own "site feedback" board.

    If they don't read this board then they might aswell delete it.

    Thanks for that. I did think sarah1972
    was a bit sharp but it's difficult to judge on boards.
    Happy to fill in one of the forms though.

    Well, it would be nice if they read and acted even without replying.
    However, the main problem is that they read and ignore, often even if they reply.

    This is a recent example: "Seven-day switching, one month on: Q&A" article

    The incorrect information remains. And, although there is no any direct link on MSE to this article, it appears among top results of MSE or google searches.

    I didnt mean to be sharp by asking if they had already filled in the form or if what they had done so far was posting it on here ?

    I was curious as to whether it hadn't been fixed even after the form had been filled out.

    Sorry you feel that way maman,

    No worries sarah , I think it's just the way that written posts can come across.:)


    At your suggestion, I've now filled in the form so mse has no excuses for not knowing there's an issue.


    I'm sure you'd agree with wig and grumbler that there's little point in having this thread if mse ignore it or respond with waffle.
