The captcha is irritating enough already
can we at least turn off these comics (which seem to be a new feature).
The CAPTCHAs are there to reduce spammer rate when a high-rep user gets compromised. See My reputation is 100 and I still get captcha! (from MSO):
Jeff once said that everyone, including moderators, are asked for CAPTCHAs in case their account gets compromised. With that being said you will see less of them after you reach 10,000 reputation.
