      Hi, I’m not sure if this is the best way to contact ADDitude, but I am getting DOZENS of emails with Chinese characters in the subject line (literally dozens a day). Is anyone else having this problem? Is there a way to stop having this problem without changing my address? Thanks

        Please start a new topic with this question @September123. You won’t get many responses in a thread of a totally different topic.

      I also had the problem of the Chinese Characters coming up, not sure if it has been resolved yet.

      I had an additional issue…When I tried to post a comment, I get a notice that I have to solve the captcha before I can post… One problem- There is no captcha for posting articles.

      Anyone else having that issue?

      Yes, ADDitude was attacked by a spam bot over the weekend. Our sincerest apologies to all those users who received multiple emails as a result. It has been addressed.

      As for the missing captcha @tpettingill… do you mean there’s no captcha if your trying to start a new topic? I’m not seeing that on my end, so I want to get specifics of what you’re experiencing so the webmaster can address it and resolve it.

      Was trying to reply to an article earlier. I had the same problem with being told I needed to solve it CAPTIA but there wasn’t one on the page. I assumed it was an error of accessibility with using high contrast mode and a screen reader, but apparently not.

      Using iPhone on iOS 11.4 I think. Also accessed from inside the browser in Inbox (gmail). Using Smart Invert colors and VoiceOver.

      I do see the “i’m Not a robot CAPTCHA on this screen.
