The robot question is coming up because of the security settings we have in the Cloudflare service we are running:
Why do I see a captcha or challenge page

That service has helped protect us against numerous attacks and other malicious activity.

I'll take a look to see if there's any special with the Forums that may be unintentionally triggering any of the Cloudflare rules that are protecting our site. I may also consider lowering the security settings, but I would prefer not to if I can.

Thanks for the explanation Troy. At the very least, I don't feel that this is directed at me personally.

My minor inconvenience is well worth the security to Castanet.

Go back to your manufacturer and make a warranty claim. Obviously, you have a major malfunction.

Now I copy my post before posting since I never know when I will be considered a robot. Like today posting in the Sport thread.

Does anyone know how someone with post count I've got can all of a sudden become a robot

Maybe you are posting too fast from one thread to another? Try posting with at least a 1 minute gap between posts? :130:

I'm getting the message too - no obvious reason and nothing's changed on my end.
Truths can be backed up by facts - do you have any?

The robot question is coming up because of something you're including in your message that's triggering our security service, Cloudflare, to think you're trying to hack our site. I'll see if there's a way to relax the security rules a little for making forum posts.
