    The one time I have had CAPTCHAs for every single time I post, I made a mistake with a userscript I had written which essentially broke SO's JavaScript. Now it's unlikely the exact same thing happened to you, but please see if there's anything wrong with SO's JavaScript on your browser

  • @Bart, well I'm certainly not a script!

  • @Yi, I'm not running any userscript. Maybe my browser has cached some broken js from SO

    Pro tip: Don't have your bot run on the same account as the human, give it another account.

  • @gnibbler - "well I'm certainly not a script!" ... That's precisely what a script would say!
