I noticed that many websites, which use CloudFlare for security protection, are now prompting some users to complete a CAPTCHA ("are you human?") test before they are allowed in to the website.

This has happened to me a LOT in the past week. Before that, never.

  • Has there been a recent escalation in DDoS attacks or something?

  • Brilliant idea.  To see if Poche is a real person and not a very fast computer in some novus ordo Priest's and Bishop's office,
    or may be coming from the Vatican.

    Oh, no! Is it really worth it? And would it give you that information? I dread the thought of going through that business.
