I tried to do this again:

Keep track of your rejected edits

but when I follow the link in the accepted answer, I get no CAPTCHA when I click on "I am a Human Being".

screenshot with error

I use Firefox 32 with NoScript and have blocked google.com.

When I enable Google temporarily in NoScript, it works.

Please allow the use of Stack Exchange with Google blocked.

    ... reCAPTCHA's are served by Google, so what did you expect? If you block Google, it's going to break.

    Then There must be an alternative fallback method, or at least a hint, that you need to enable google for this. It took me ages to find out the problem

I cannot reproduce this issue on a standard PC (not blocking Google). We rely on Google to provide reCAPTCHA and also as a login provider for our sites. If you block Google, reCAPTCHA and login via Google will not work. It thus is a requirement of our websites, to some degree, that Google is not blocked. This is by design.

    I will look into adding an error message for this case though, as not showing anything and still letting you click the submit button is fairly confusing.
