I am trying to run a query on Stack Exchange Data Explorer. Not logged into it results in an output of


instead of the actual CAPTCHA coming up.

To be specific, it's coming on this question.

I was able to run the query logged off. Captcha showed up and it went through. Running off of FF 4.0. – Jeff Mercado Jun 3 '11 at 11:09
if you've run the query before, it shows the cached results. Running in Incognito /Private Mode / Porn mode results in the above message coming all the time @JeffMercado – Sathya Jun 3 '11 at 11:13
Hmm, oddly, running in private mode through a proxy for me didn't show the captcha at all. Even tweaking the query to make sure it wasn't cached still ran fine. I'll probably have to try this again when the captcha wears off. – Jeff Mercado Jun 3 '11 at 11:18
Just retried again in private through a proxy, could not reproduce. – Jeff Mercado Jun 3 '11 at 11:41
Runs fine on Chrome+Win7 while logged in. Captcha showed up only the first time. – JohnP Jun 18 '11 at 13:03

I believe this was fixed a while back.
