    are you guys experimenting with new security settings? i keep getting a full page captcha before i can access the site. not sure if its something on your end, but it has happened on a few other sites today, so it might be something on my end?

    Cloudflare is a content delivery network. There are a variety of reasons they serve up CAPTCHAs but usually it's something on your end that has triggered their servers to ID you as a potential problem.

    Often it's because your IP address got identified as potentially malicious. If you're seeing them on other pages, it's almost certainly on your end.

    90% of the time that Cloudflare throws up an interstitial page, it's because they've identified a problem, not the site owner.

    Woah, did @Nick change his profile pic? Does that mean its time for everyone to change their profile pics? I'm not prepared for this!

    that would be odd, because i'm on my corporate network, and i doubt anyone else in my company is on RM. not entirely sure how the network is setup, but a lot of times geo location services identify me as in NJ, which is not the case (but where corp headquarters is).

    thanks for the feedback, just figured i'd ping you guys to see if anything was going on.

    Cloudflare is the CDN for millions of websites, they absolutely don't care about RM as an individual site. If they've identified your corporate IP as a problem, it's something behavioral that they're seeing about the interaction between your IP, and any of the millions of websites they protect. Which makes sense, since you're seeing the CAPTCHA for other sites than RM - somehow your IP is flagged as a problem.
