If you're getting "are you a bot?" errors when trying to post or submit... just wait about 5-10 seconds and just click submit a second time and it should go through. But you shouldn't get this very often, if at all, anymore. It's a new anti-spam thingie and I'm still tweaking the values a bit.

I got this message yesterday.
I assumed it thought I clicked "submit" twice or sumptin'.
I when back one page and noticed it did, in fact post my message.

I don't believe i bounced "add-comment" (in fact, I'm sure of it since add-comment disables itself on first hit).
