I am not a robot!
Since recently I've noticed that the Captcha increased in frequency on SO (I am using only SO and cannot speak about other SE sites). While behind my corporate proxy at work this was understandable and was happening often before as well => multiple users coming from the same IP, etc...
But at home I am also seeing it appear more often than my patience could bear. It's starting to really harm my productivity and become annoying to the point of a PITA. I am accustomed to performing multiple edits to my answers after I post them and the Captcha literary hits me after the second or third edit to my answer and it wasn't like that in the past.
Has some policy changed?
I would understand if some policy changed and for some reasons the Captcha had to appear more often than before and would accept that (if a reasonable argument is brought here of course), but at least make this Captcha text more readable. I am like staring and clicking on the refresh button a couple of times before I get some exploitable text out of the image. I feel like I have to solve some puzzles instead of helping people with their programming related questions.
