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'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.

Just had a big drop on my profile score. And all my hubs were featured along with a steady 10 Editors Choice. I say 'were' because 3 were just unfeatured and I don't know what to do about that. My views are over 945,000. Boo-hoo. Hubpages doesn't love me anymore!

For months I published no hubs and my hubber score sat around 96, in the last month I published three hubs, all of which are featured and each time I published one my hubber score dropped by two points, it's now down to 90. Is this how HP rewards us for our hard work? Correct me if I'm wrong but...

I've heard to disregard that but I'm still a little curious. Honestly I don't know how the score is even decided but those of you that have a lot of followers or have been able to make money, what is your average score per article?Thank you!

After 6 months on the site i've started the really wonder how many backlinks is a reasonable number to any hub, and really to a hub becoming successful? Or is it simply a lottery.What kind of figures do other hubbers consider?

I have no idea how the Hub rating system works. What I do know is I published a hub about 4 hours ago. I came back to it 30 minutes ago, found a sentence that didn't look right, and edited it. 5 minutes later, the hub exited the bowels of the "quality assessment process" with a score 7...
