I really hate those and since I log in at least few times a day, it gets super annoying!
Many robots (automated spidering software) do roam the Internet often and using CAPTCHA is the best way to prevent them for site owners. Stop getting annoyed, since this is a necessary evil and you have to go through the CAPTCHA
I've been here nearly a year, and I haven't seen the captcha thing in ages. I don't have to type in anything besides my username and password.
I have the sign-in page bookmarked directly:
No, I only have 1 account and the captcha is gone now.. that was weird
Yeh I think there is a captcha period when you first open an account. It might be like for your first ten hubs or something, I forget. But that was only for when publishing a new hub, not just to merely sign in.
i've been a member for more than a year and have 10+ hubs
I'm a neophyte, but I had the Captcha requirement until my Hubberscore increased to a sufficient level: it didn't seem to depend on the number of hubs.
Yeah, the captcha does slow me down in hub publishing. I just hope that my hub score gets high enough soon so that I don't have to go though the captach. Right now my hub score is 70 and I'm still seeing the captcha.
The captcha also appears when you login from different IPs. I was logging in from several IPs in Asia and it started showing the captcha. After a while it 'understood' that I was temporarily somewhere else in the world and it no longer showed the captcha when logging in.
Some websites have this to prevent suspicious account activity: if you always login while physically in the US, it might be weird if someone in the Middle-East or Asia tries to login, even when it is you on a holiday. It will then show the captcha to protect your account, it might just be a computer program trying to login to your account.
I wrote a hub about this.

Did I miss a notification of a change in logging in, or am I the only one who is suddenly having to type in a Captcha after my password to log in? It just stated this morning, but I don't remember seeing anything about...
