It gave me hell a few days ago when I was trying out some new avatars too. But that's the only thing that's triggered it for me.

I get it when I change my signature O.o every single time I preview it. Do I have so many links in it so that it is suspicious, maybe?

I'm not gonna move for that reason :p But it sure is annoying. Worse than usual these past few days.

EDIT: I get the urge to swear, but I shalln't. Just now it prompted me to go through three such screens in a row before I came back and could preview my signature O.o Annoying is the word.

Three times in an hour again. Twice for previewing a message (but not to post it?), and once for signature editing.

Australia, and 100% sure I have no malware. Given the number of incidents it's cloudflare or somesuch, not the members.

I've actually never seen this captcha thing before. :c And I've done almost everything other people have said led to a captcha page.

It's probably like Rukario says then.

It doesn't really jump up when I'm replying to posts, but when I preview any of my posts, the Captcha pops up. :s I'm not too sure if its my IP address or my old computer, but I'm running a scan right now. This started happening about two days ago for me, after I cleaned out my registry. As someone mentioned in the thread my most recent captcha was updating my game thread with new CSS. So, that might why.

United States and I doubt it has any malware, still scanning to make sure.

That said, I live in a small city 2h north of the GTA where there are probably zero members of PC living. It's a cottage city with a lot of rural farms, etc. and a not-so-dense population of 31,000. I don't see how such a miniscule, out-in-buttfart-nowhere town could have an IP similarity that triggers the system... I doubt anyone else from my city has ever visited PC lol

Steve is talking about within CloudFlare's system, not PC's.

Correct. CloudFlare tracks and blocks malware, spam, and exploit hits from all over the world and adds to their system any repeated or high-percentage IPs or IP ranges it captures globally. Its so those that use CF can benefit from the security without having to set up their own generic black list.

It does a pretty good job of finding bot-net bots and other compromised machines (IPs) or those that spew known exploit code.

    I have the same problem. How many times I preview my sig, it comes. It's like a million times now. Avatar too.
    This is common for me.

    This happens to me sometimes. Like, three times today when uploading an image to my album, changing my avvy and updating my siggy. (Avatar and signature). It doesn't happen regulary for me, but it has been happening a lot today.

    So essentially, it's Cloudflare being Cloudflare, and unless some of us switch IPs or move to a different state, we'll just have to live with it? owo It's bearable, it's just aggravating when you're editing your profile / signature, buuut it's better than blocking our entire account. xD;

    I'm getting that a lot lately. When I first got it, it didn't bother me. Then it happened again a couple of days later and it didn't bother me either. But it recently started happening again and it bothers the life out of me. It pops up when editing my Signature, whenever I preview it, whenever I edit my blog, when I preview posts. It's plain annoying!
    My computer is malware-free. I scan it every day .-.
    Oh and I'm in Romania btw >u<
    And this is quite a recent occurence x.x started happening recently (I think around the time Syd posted this .-.)

    It may be that CF has updated some triggers for this based on recent attacks it's seen.. I dunno for sure.

    I apologize for it but its mostly out of our control as they (CF) set the triggers and so on that do this.

    We could virtually turn off the protection but that could open up vectors for attack and hackers.. do not want.

    All I can suggest is to go ahead and work through it, doing the captcha each time.

    I don't know, if this is based on IP, then try switching your router on and off and you'll have a different IP.

    or…if that doesn't work, try this to change it.

    I have no idea but that's something you guys could try.

    Just to let you know, Captcha codes appear every single time I try to switch up my avatar.

    I guess I'm on such a list then O.o Every time I preview a post now. It has gotten worse. I'll just have to try droomph's link and change my IP somehow.

    Canadians have static IPs. Few places really offer dynamic IPs, so switching your router on and off isn't going to do anything lol

    Which is quite annoying when banning bots on MMO servers, I'll tell ya!
