Mobile Site Robot Check

When I am logging into the mobile site on my phone or computer I am having to prove that I am not a robot.

When did this start?

It asks you to divide by zero, if the connection shorts out, than you did not pass the test.

And then it gives you a trip to Hong Kong in GF for $5.

I logged in last month and didn't have to prove that I wasn't.

If you can fill out a reCaptcha you are not.

I think it's random. I had to do it when I logged in on my phone.

This may seem obvious, but why don't you just use the app instead of the mobile site?

Sometimes when clicking an email link to checkin doesn't open the app, instead it opens the mobile version of the browser and the site.
