It asked who the lastname/surname of the current vice captain of Australia but the response that it expected was VC for Aus trip to SA.

Ooh we might need to update the questions and answers... they were probably last updated in about 2012!

We do it to stop spamers.

Yep, that is what I figured that it needed updating and used to prevent spammers.  There was something else that I ran into earlier that might have been worth reporting but cannot seem to remember.  If I do remember I will post back here.

Edit: For stuff like this should we post in a new thread or send it via PM?

Either, although by putting in a thread others who are experiencing the same issue can see what is happening too.

Perfect, will continue to do that in case I run into something strange again, which I do not expect to anytime soon.

I just remembered what I had forgotten.  Getting old.

The search function located on the top right hand corner, the character background is set to very light grey/gray which makes it difficult to see what you have typed.  The search on the menu bar works as expected.

Is it just me or do others have trouble identifying the letters in the verification pictures?  Sometimes it takes 5 goes, and the second question changes on me.  And yes, I have my glasses on.

Will this anti spam feature drop off after a while, because I'm finding it painful?

Three attempts on this post....

Thanks Buzz.  Good to know.  Two attempts so far.  Some of these letters are hard to pick.
