Just wondering because those captchas are starting to get on my nerves and I don't recall there being that many in the past. I do not particularly enjoy being trolled by the site for improving questions via quick and small edits.

    Ha, so I'm not the only one? They do seem to have gotten far more frequent these last few days. – Bart Aug 10 '12 at 20:26
  • Yep, me too. Seems like something got tweaked a little. – Ernest Friedman-Hill Aug 10 '12 at 20:28

    I've definitely noticed an increase in the number of captchas in the past two weeks or so. – Bill the Lizard Aug 10 '12 at 20:29

    If you would stop editing those "discount shoes" links in, maybe the captchas would relax a bit. – jonsca Aug 10 '12 at 20:29

    Surely Discount Gucci Handbags are just fine.... – Bart Aug 10 '12 at 20:32

    @jonsca Discount shoes? Was not dishes? Uhmmm… This is the second time I misread something I read. Is it time I change my eyeglasses? – kiamlaluno Aug 10 '12 at 20:34
  • @kiamlaluno So, yes ;) – jonsca Aug 10 '12 at 20:40
  • Stop using bots to edit questions for you and you'll likely see less captchas. – Servy Aug 10 '12 at 21:08

  • Have you been using the new review feature? I've noticed this, too, but only when I'm reviewing posts — a process that allows me to view/edit/flag a lot more posts in a shorter period of time. – user164291 Aug 10 '12 at 22:40

    @BradMace: Closely related, but not a dupe, since the primary issue here is not the difficulty of the CAPTCHA itself, but the frequency with which it's hit. – Josh Caswell Aug 14 '12 at 13:54
