    Because they have a reCAPTCHA system to make sure no user on this site is a bot.

    It doesn't think you're a robot, it wants EVERYONE to prove they aren't a 'bot. The way to reduce bot posting is to require everyone to prove they aren't a 'bot. It's difficult for bots to get through the reCaptcha, but humans can almost always prevail.

    This is an anti-spam measure to ensure you're a human and not a spammer or spambot. Verizon has already introduced it in late May to heavily curtail spamming on this site.

    It is a new anti-spam measure to prove that you are a human and not a bot. It is being used to fight spam on the site.
