I'm getting frequent human verification screen when posting answers. It seem to be due to the new (?) draft feature. Could you please have a look into it?

P.S. funnily enough, I just got human verification screen asking this question.

Assuming you are a logged in user and have >= 200 reputation:

After successfully completing one captcha, we now suppress captcha for 5 minutes on your account.

    What's up with the 5 minute limit? If I were a bot and wanted to spam does that mean I can spam for 5 minutes after completing one captcha? If I were to try to answer a couple of questions where some thought and explanation needs to be in the answer, it probably would take more than 5 minutes to write that answer. Which means I get hit with the captcha every time. Commented Nov 8, 2010 at 17:27
  • @robert why would you get the captcha every time? I don't get the captcha every time I answer. Captcha is triggered in part by how fast things are being done; if you are doing things slowly then you won't get it. Commented Nov 8, 2010 at 21:13
  • My bad, it was just that I got hit with the captcha several times in a row and it just felt like there was some kind of problem. Then I saw your response and interpreted it the wrong way. I made an assumption based on too little data. It seems to work fine now. Commented Nov 9, 2010 at 12:33
  • that's weird because I get the impression that it's when I spend a long time formulating an answer or question that I get the catpcha.
