Yep, just got the same thing. Weird.

I wonder if this is official or not?

Yeah, that's kind of how I felt about it.

I know Martin had the webhost set up Captcha for this site due to the recent spambot issue. I'll let him know it's causing some PM issues.

Martin says he won't be able to check on the issue until late tonight, but I have told him of the problem.

And Sucuri is our web host. It should be a legitimate captcha.

Cheers!
