does this happen for anyone else. i post the correct answer and it tells me i can't add or (something close to that)? second times, it goes through

i mean i'm not a math whiz like buck, but...come on.


hmmm...have ya thought of asking for an abacus for the holidays?

The same thing has been happening to me for months.

Happens to me... and I even double check with my calculator before giving my final answer! :-)

Maths ar hards...

Actually I've never had that happen. Have you tried tilting you head as you hit enter?

It happened to me once and I was confused, but in my case, I added instead of subtracted, so it wasn't the captcha's fault. LOL

Yeah - sure. Every time. I don't know, everything is a bit different here in the parallel world of "Mac". Thought it was just me.

I've never had it happen...and I thought that might be because I use a Mac....LOL

I'm lucky...the public computer I use most often has an Accu-Compute feature that offers you a list of possible answers to click on. Most of the time, though, I switch it off. My tiny peeve is that it used to let me answer one captcha per session and then never require another for the rest of the time. Now, however, it asks for one for each reply I type in - or edit. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

i have a mac. even when i select the pre-offered correct answer it happens. i'll try tilting. maybe lack of alcohol is the problem.

It's not just Macs. I have it happen on my PC as well, and I am not math impaired. But there doesn't seem to be a discernible pattern as to when it happens and when it doesn't.
