For the last 3 or 4 days, every time I try to search for anything at all, Google Captcha pops up.
Sometimes it only requires me to check the box, sometimes gives me one or two arrays of “buses” or “sidewalks” or “bicycles” or “fire hydrants” to check, and sometimes goes on asking for what feels like an endless series of (extremely slow to load) iterations. This is infuriating and wastes a lot of time.
An example of the kinds of searches I’m doing: adjectival order in English, multiple sclerosis, Versailles 1919, Eyjafjallajökull - in other words, a vast range of topics. Google isn’t blocking me because of the topics I’m looking for.
I can’t tell you how this issue can be reproduced by anyone but me - and I reproduce it by searching for anything at all.
