Hmm, I haven't run into that issue. It must be some sort of detection triggered by posting identical or nearly-identical comments in different groups. I think I've done that maybe once or twice, posting something in only two different groups to which it was appropriate. My discussion about the Dresden Files books was one of those, I remember.
Lately AN has been sometimes asking me to complete captchas before posting comments or replies. (Maybe because I've been posting "too much", or reposting virtually identical comments in order to fix misteaks.)
In addition to checking "I'm not a robot", it'll ask "select the pictures with storefronts" or some such... which reminded me of this:
(from cheezburger.com: "I mean, since when is salad food?")
Walking on a pool full of oobleck! Thanks for sharing that!
(An annoyance I also have with lots of documentaries and science shows: they just had to indulge in the fad of throwing in gratuitous time-warps, slowing down bits, returning to normal speed, sometimes reversing and replaying a fraction of a second, all to make it seem even more exciting. Stop messing with our orienting reflex!)
Walking on water - almost - sort of.
Fun entropy song! I can't figure out how he managed to move his mouth to the opposite time.
Maybe this also belongs in Lions, Tigers, and Cheetahs, Oh My!
From a collection of supposed kids' quotes from math and science classes:
"We use algebraical variables when we don't know what we're talking about."
It's a series of books. Basically it's magic and other typical fantasy elements placed within a modern setting. It's far from the first series of books to do that sort of thing, but it's a popular one.
I was trying to read it, since so many people talk about it, but I'm having some serious issues with it.
