I am always coming onto this website and posting to peoples answers but half the time I have to do a test to make sure I am not a robot. And with my slow internet it takes a long time. How can I either prevent having this happen to me or could there be a better way of making sure that I am not a robot.


It's one of the ways they try to prevent abuse. There are certain "suspicious" behaviors which seem to trigger it.

I have tripped it a number of times in the past. While there are a number of reasons why this may happen, I think that my habit of leaving composing a question and letting it stew for several days, if not weeks before posting is why I get it so much.

I'm OK with waiting a few seconds and clicking the checkbox. I think it's worthwhile to have these measures in place if they prevent some abuse.

At least you haven't gotten the teapot:

Error I'm a teapot

  • I think maybe that's why I always get a captcha when I post an answer on Code Review. I always compose the review in a separate editor, and then paste and post.

  • I do not mind doing the whole thing either but I have some slow internet so it takes a while for the pictures to load and stuff.
