Lately I've been getting CAPTCHAs almost every time I post an answer. Is there any particular behavior that makes SO trigger the bot test so often?

EDIT: It just occurred to me that most of these CATPCHAs have been occurring just after experiencing missing previews due to this Chrome 11 issue. I guess downloading a page, but not the JavaScript might be considered bot-like behavior, so these issues might be connected. Can anyone confirm this?

When is used, no cookies are sent. Hence SE won't know you're not downloading the JavaScript. –  Arjan May 8 '11 at 13:18
Because you are a bot. Admit it. Come out of the ... server closet? Forgive me, I don't know what kind of closets you bots hang in. –  Won't May 9 '11 at 13:24

Certain user behavior like pasting answers in quickly can trigger captchas. There are probably other criteria that trigger them as well.
