But I think poof is on a home connection?

Still single, can't imagine why.

Is there anything I can do about it?

Wait, I'm not on a network.

I suppose you most likley have a dynamic IP, but I would think that by the time you received yours that it would have reset the recapticha from the last person.

Well, my "ban" lasted 24 hours. So after 24 hours of needing to enter a Captcha, it finally let me do it without. But in the FAQ page, it says that repeat offenders can get permanently put on the captcha list (or at least for longer periods of time)...

You can try disconnecting your router for a bit and when you plug it back in you should get a new IP.

EDIT: you could also contact google.

Ok, horror story.

Back when I worked at the computer shop, one laptop came in because it had been reported to be hitting Google at an alarming rate. After a couple weeks of digging around with the help of the boss we were never able to locate the malicious program responsible. Yet, when we gave the laptop internet the problem persisted. (we could see this with the ISP tools that we had). In the end we had to reformat the laptop and reinstall all the software.

If you computer is doing the same way, I'd start backing up your files now.

Definitely fell asleep today... ugh. I stay up during the all-nighter, and then fall asleep after I get 8.5 hours of rest.
