Why does YA make us verify our identity after every post?

It never used to be this way.

    If you are talking the Captcha feature, They are testing new spam fighting measures. It takes just a few extra seconds for each question or answer. They have to do something to prevent bots who can take down the sight for days or weeks at a time. Quora is the alternative if you don;'t like it.

    Uf you mean logging in each time, that was a temp glitch a few days ago and was fixed.

    It is a new anti-spam measure to prove that you are a human and not a bot. It is being used to fight spam on the site.
