How to turn CAPTCHA off on this wiki

Gentlemen, I am an experienced user not used to being asked math questions every time I post here.

How does one turn them off? Special:Captcha/help doesn't help.

Next thing you know they'll be asking division.

No I don't want the much worse image questions. Jidanni 12:56, 24 December 2007 (PST)

Unfortunately there's no way to turn them off save for, perhaps, Sysops. Otherwise we're just stuck with them as per the lovely bunch of douchebags who continue to spam the wiki (bots included). :( Mousee 15:24, 24 December 2007 (PST)

They could if they wanted to. Being a mature user, "34-7=?" brings back painful pangs of the past. Next thing you know they will ask a war veteran the wrong thing causing a relapse. Jidanni 16:02, 24 December 2007 (PST)

Really sorry for the captcha, guys, but we were having pretty big problems with spam bots before this. It's sad that we all have to pay the price for their wrongdoings. I voted for Kittenauth captcha, myself, but anything was better than nothing! -- Sabrejack 17:05, 24 December 2007 (PST)

Know what's neat? It asked me math questions three times before allowing the save. That's what happens when you go thru an ISP proxy with a changing IP I bet. Jidanni 00:56, 25 December 2007 (PST)
