I'm getting far too many Captchas when I attempt to edit my posts after noticing an error after having just posted them. This highly discourages fixes. Moreover it greatly penalizes those users who suffer from RSI and related problems. I've had to defeat over 10 captcha's in the past few hours. That's a bit ridiculous. I could've spent that wasted time much more productively.
I agree. It is very very annoying. Especially for frequent edits of the same post.
Can you imagine a spam bot posting something, and then trying to correct it?
I do agree we need it for frequently posted questions/answers.
Once you cross the 10K mark, it will become a bit better, as the software reduces the Captcha. (Sorry, don't have the link).
Given the rate at which you post high quality answers, I am not really sure you are human though :-)
Once you solve a Captcha, as long as you have 200+ rep, you are immune to further captchas for a 5 minute period.
And as Moron mentioned, at the 10k mark we cut the thresholds in half.
That said, it is true that very rapid activities are those that tend to trigger the bot detection.
