Post Odd logging in issue.
I tried to log in by the little bar at the bottom of the forum main page. I checked the always log me in box.

It sent me to a page that said I had exceeded the max number of login attempts, and now had to enter a captcha code in order to login. That worked flawlessly.

What gives?

Bots trying to rape your account. Don't mind them, unless your password sucks.

It's seemingly intentional to help keep bots at bay.
