What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

When a user with a deep compulsive obsessive disorder, like me, goes in a rampage fixing everybody's spelling, grammar and general style and code style errors, displaying a CAPTCHA every 3 or so submits doesn't do anything but deter that person from improving the general quality of the content at any Stack Exchange site.

I think less CAPTCHA should be displayed.

There are already reduced captchas for users with 10k rep as documented here

Increase captcha threshold for post editing

I nearly crapped my pants when I saw a different image above the CAPTCHA today. – TheTXI Aug 17 '09 at 10:47
@TheTXI Agreed, it kind of startled me cause I thought I clicked the wrong link or it went to a new site when I saw the new image. ahhh! – Troggy Aug 17 '09 at 17:18

I don't quite understand why any CAPTCHA's are required for users in that range? What are they there to stop? No-one there is suddenly turning their account into a spambot. Seems a little odd.

Not intentionally. But your account may get hijacked. – Robert Munteanu Aug 17 '09 at 9:18
Sure, it's possible, but you'd like to think there were ways to immediately suspend an account if it was noted that was occurring [i.e. via user reports]. Regardless, sure. No point arguing I guess. – please delete me Aug 17 '09 at 9:22
