Is anyone else getting a "captcha" firewall message when trying to get into the PM area?

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 did click it, but nothing happened.

Anyone else not able to get their PMs?

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!

Okay, no worries. Thanks for the tip!

It's still there, but now I can get through to the PM area.
