Captcha code, if that is what it is called, doesn't work

I keep making mistakes and it keeps publishing my posts. Either I am a really special guy or they take pity on the mentally challenged or they screwed it up.
Take your pick.

    <b>georgehawley</b>, I think Tesla heard you. They appear to have removed captchas (at least for me).

    Correction. It appears to be back. I think after supplying the captcha, you may be free to post for a certain period of time before being offered a new captcha.

    I put in a 100% wrong entry and it was ignored. Silly system.

    Hmmm...

    Nope. CAPTCHA appears every time and insists that at least 4 of 5 characters are correct. Meh.

    I think I've figured out when the captchas are presented. You are presented a captcha only when you have certain HTML tags in your post, especially ones that references other URLs or images.

    I've been getting it for each and every post the last few days.

    Apparently a company called <i>'Mollom'</i> is resonsible for the security features of these forums.

    For one thing caps are ignored. Just type letters and numbers and it works every time.

    After posting in this thread yesterday, I haven't had to do the capcha dance since! Yay!

    I almost never get captchas, even with several links. You do because you have been fingered as spam threats. >:[

    Hmmm. Maybe you get presented a captcha if there is a grammar or spelling mistake in your post. :-P

    I think the whole point of the 'CAPTCHA' is simply authentication. Even if it does not work, a spam bot is not going to try to enter the code, en will just keep getting rejected. I do not post all that much, and got it only once. Of course I do not have the time to try incorrect codes to see if they work, so I am not going to give you an opinion on that.

    Don't see it any more. I have developed captcha immunity, I guess
