    Default I'm not a robot

    Recently when I post on the main forum I get a pop-up in between asking me to verify that I am not a robot. Indeed I am not.

    However, after I click that it doesn't redirect back to the post. Just kind of sticks. I've lost a couple posts, and once the computer scolded me for trying to post twice in the same ten seconds.

    Anyway, I keep seeing people say they lost a post or it disappeared. Thought maybe this could be it.

    Or maybe you are all robots?

    Yes, me too. It's gotten to be such a pain. Why is this necessary? As members aren't we known to not be robots?

    I'm getting that too and it's just not worth trying to remember everything I typed if that's what happens to my screen time for the day. I'm not a robot, but I'm not that brilliant either.

    The dark nose spots are the eyes and the ears are the wings. Flying right at me ack!

    I've had this same problem. I tried posting a new thread four times with no success, and I had to do the "I'm not a robot" all four times. Topsy was working with me on it, but then the issue I was posting about resolved itself and I was tired of writing out the same thing over and over, so I gave up.

    Long story, short: you're not alone.

    I never get this here. Occasionally I want to answer "yes I AM a robot" when I see it elsewhere, but, that isn't ever actually an option. What happens when computers get sophisticated enough to beat the "robot check"?

    Maybe I really AM a robot and this is all an elaborate scheme.

    Both my kids like AM's pic. They think it's a green emoji sticker. For a while we were playing with the emojis on my ipad so ds could put some names to expressions. He loves them. It's hilarious.
