This happened to me a few times. I had a long post and it kept recycling back to the CAPTCHA. And no matter how many times I solved it I could not post. So I spit the post into 2 and managed to post without the CAPTCHA request. I too recommend people save long posts before posting. Just select everything and "Ctrl-C" should be enough to paste the post later if things go bad.

For a few days I had the CloudFlare-CAPTCHA problem now. A lengthy review I just posted required two CAPTCHAs in a row; luckily I had saved the text before posting. This test post got through unhindered after I deleted all cookies via the link at the bottom. Maybe post a warning somewhere?

PO.com is under some sort of SPAM attack. 1000+ SPAM comments posted and deleted today.
It's slowing the server. I will see what I can do, but not much short-term.

I'm having a problem with Cloudflare as well, error 522 - which occurred just attempting to view the website. About 12 error messages in a row about 40 minutes ago.

Thanks - It should be better now.
Pops - Cloudflare thought your posts was an SQL Injection attack. I will alert them to the false positive.

I have changed the cloudflare settings, so suspicious posts should no longer be blocked. cloudflare might instead "challenge" you to make sure you are human.

I lost a post the other day, but not sure of the reason. May have because someone posted ahead of me.

Although it has not happened to me personally, I have heard of similar problems. It probably means that the post that got blocked contained a keyword that was being used in a denial-of-service attack, either on PO.com or another virtual server on the same physical server as PO.com.

If it really bugs you, you could use a process of elimination to determine which word it was. But it's also possible that you will never know, if the attack ended and the word was pulled from the hotlist by one of their support people.
