and the comment box doesn't have the usual 4-digit code and 'Type the numbers you see in the image on the right'.

Instead it says 'To post your comment, answer the puzzle below:' and has a place to type 'your answer'. The puzzle seems to be nonsense, such as 'Enter the following' an image with words 'be mine' and a place for 'your answer'.

or is it just me seeing this and I need to seek professional help?

Looks like either the Chambersburg Forum posters don't understand numbers or..well...sorry Clem...If you see 'Enter the following' for more then 4 hours you may need to see your doctor..

A while back I followed a link to the Australia forum, they have to watch a commercial first before they see the bit to post in the box. That would certainly cut back on my posting.

Well, if TOPIX is over 40 then I could understand it going through "the changes"....

<quoted text>The forum that the not-quite-so dead ArtGal STILL posts on does something funky thing where you have to answer a question and type that in to make a comment. They just can't ruin this place fast enough!
I think they did fire the troll mods like someone said though because Sam/Susan is waaaaay butthurt!
Artgal form the topix forum? She was funny but her departure was epic for topix.

I wonder how well politix is doing.

I'm not sure but I've only noticed the word box for most of the local hometown threads.

I think it's because there are more unregistered spam accounts over there....I mean I'd rather type 4 numbers than a full sentence....
