Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Yesterday and this morning I was trying to ask a question at StackOverflow.
System prompted me captcha form, but under the (funny) video I was unable to see the captcha insert text box; only the "I'm a Human Being" appared.

I got a screenshot, but upload of images failed here now. After trying many times with different browsers, just 2 minutes ago my post went online, without requiring me captcha step again.

What's the problem?
Someone can explain me?

We occasionally see reports of this, but can't reproduce. I suspect proxy or firewall issues between you and us.

The page you want is

I suppose ReCaptcha could be down but that would be .. pretty fatal for a lot of the internet, us included.

Jeff Atwood in person, what an honour to talk with you! :-) I tried with IE, Firefox and Chrome. Now it works, probably the problem is like what you say: temporary down of ReCaptcha or proxy limits on my line. Thank you for the response! Nando – Ferdinando Santacroce Jan 4 '11 at 23:06
