Do you regularly fail CAPTCHA tests?  If so, I hate to break it to you, but I think you are a computer...

RE: I'm a robot secret agent

I tried to register for a forum and it declined me and their helpdesk mentioned I came across as a spambot!  How does this happen?  Oddly, it's from my work computer (and I work at a place considered prestigious by those that give a monkeys about such things).

RE: I'm a robot secret agent

I regularly fail captcha checks at work. I assume it's something to do with their firewalls and page caching. And maybe loss of people looking like they're coming from the same IP address if it is a NATing firewall.

Either that out you are a I welcome you as one of the robot ruling class and claim my £5

Might be worth visiting http://icanhazip.com and putting the resultant IP address I to google to see of its considered a spammy address by anyone.

Not much you can do about it of it is, mind...
