Captcha

A few people have reported problems with the Captcha on the comments. Could you describe the problems in the comments please, plus all the usual stuff about OS, browser etc.

Thanks

OS Safari. So far in the last week I've had two problems. First on was having to put the numbers in twice, the second was I was unable to post anything. Was OK yesterday.

What Captcha? I wasn't asked for one when making the above post.

When I first reported a problem with Unnthreaded instead of producing the widget there was a report of "Invalid site key" and a link to the Captcha FAQ with a suggestion that the site's key had expired and a new one needed to be registered. Now, I'm getting the error message instead:

As commenter;

Using Chrome Windows XP (I know, I have another machine for other stuff) I just tried posting on unthreaded and got:
An internal error occurred: 51EC38DADC183.A148E10.F50D6252

This is different from a few days ago, when it asked for some captcha information but displayed no dialogue box for entering information.

Using Yahoo/Firefox I have now successfully posted the same comment.


It may be irrelevant, but the BH panel also recently disappeared from one of the 'regular use' panels that chrome presents me with when a new tab is opened. This was certainly not due to any substantive change in my browsing habits.

Joe Public, you only get asked for authentification on Discussion Posts and Unthreaded, not on posts BH puts up on the main thread.

In previous days, like others I got no Capture image, Today I get

I wondered if it was No Script. It had been giving warnings about some of Wordpress links.

Still getting errors:

I've disabled Captcha on Discussion and Unthreaded. I'll have to keep an eye on Spam though, so may have to revert.
