Irritating for sure. Lately it (Captcha) has been trying to redirect me to the puzzle page but finally lets me pass to where ever I was going. There is no rhyme or reason to it. I can be on here for an hour and boom, it pops up when I try to switch threads. Then there are days it pops up every other page flip.Well this sounds irritating. I apologize. I didn't realize this was happening. Feel free to DM me to let me know. I saw the guy having the issues a few months back and I thought we whitelisted him.
I'm a bit busy until mid-next week, but I'll put my focus on this problem then. Spam is definitely down but this sounds like a terrible user experience.
