I seems to happen to me more when I edit posts than when I simply post, but when it does happen, it's difficult to get out of. It keeps giving me one "quiz" after another. Usually I have to log off and log back on to get rid of it.
I've been getting that as well. I though it had something to do with an ad blocker I'm using.
Strangely enough, no. I've lived on this planet so long now, I must have the human stink on me.

Is anyone else being asked to prove they're a human even though they're logged in to the board? It's not happening every time, but I'm getting a CAPTCHA every so often when I post.
It's been happening to me. My impression is some things set it off, especially editing a post successive times, perhaps because that's like doing several posts close together. Sometimes I get just one test, sometimes several, but I've always been able to get past them after a few. If you under-answer a test it indicates that. I think you get another if you over-answer, and sometimes even though you didn't.
The speed at which one answers the test might be a factor in whether one gets another, as a program would tend to do it quickly. I haven't had an impression about that.
I edited this post a ton of times, and didn't set it off.
I just experimented a bit, by changing a post until I started getting the tests. The results tended to confirm over-answering and maybe speed-answering make getting further tests more likely.
The over-answering issue comes up because sometimes a square only has a bit of a car or a bit of a sign in it, or a pole rather than sign itself, and whoever set the test may have ignored that square.
I came across a forum discussion for ning account holders, There was some conversation about a setting in the account that reads "Ask members to fill out captcha if their posts look spammy"
There is a box that can be checked or unchecked by the account holder. Maybe it's related?
I just set it off with quick successive, identical posts in a thread.
Sometimes the button says "verify", sometimes "skip", sometimes "next".
