Why do you require a captcha EVEN AFTER I HAVE LOGGED IN ? This is the first time I am seeing that

initially I had trouble I almost gave up then listened to the wav which went through another rigmarole

This site has undoubtedly THE WORST captcha images. They are ugly, unreadable, and I have 20/20 (seriously)

Consider using DISCUS instead of your own petty forum

This is not Insteon specific.

This has been discussed numerous times in threads. Until you hit a certain number of posts (maybe 25?) you have to do the captcha. This is to cut down on spam.
