Nope.. we set that up deliberately just for you.

To bypass it you must:

log in via a proxy server routed through your pop3 administration protocol. Once you have done this you need some new cookies. I suggest chocolate chip with hazelnut sprinkles. 2 dozen ought to be sufficient... baker's dozen that is. Once you have your cookies, you'll need to disable them .. I suggest a steam roller .. that'll disable them adequately. Steam rollers can be hired from Spencer's I believe. Once you have disabled your cookies you'll nearly be set .. you'll just need to install Googlefirefoxinternetexplorer version 123.4. Once done you'll need to reboot your system after a full defragmentation.

Then you should be able to log on.

This occurs as the forum is set to only allow 3 failed login attempts before the additional visual confirmation is required. This is intended to limit brute force attacks on user accounts.
It most commonly happens when the wrong (or no) password is entered successively, (or occasionally when the wrong username for the password is used repeatedly!)
