Can't post replies due to captcha

Seems captcha is blocking posting comments.  Here are my symptoms:

OS: Ubuntu Linux 12.10
Browsers: Firefox 21.0 & Google Chrome 27.0.1453.110
Instructables Account: Logged in with Facebook
Rich text: On or Off same result
Error: On submit I receive a message in a modal window saying, "Please type the two words as seen on image"

There is no captcha from which I can read the two words displayed, only the text, "This helps us reduce spam." displayed below the comment box.

[edit]: change title and tags to be more descriptive.

"unmatching captcha values"
Cleared cache, etc. and problem still exists.

I am having the same problem, but I am trying to publish my instruction project. There are no captcha boxes, yet each time I try to publish it comes up "unmatched".
I'm having the exact same issue. I have tried in chrome, firefox, ie, safari and dolphin (I'm thorough), and I don't see the captcha box anywhere. I even tried clearing the cache and disabling things like ad-block. It is extremely annoying since this is the last day to submit to the Halloween costume contest.

Okay, I can post a comment, but not a reply. I tried posting a comment and then subsequently posting a reply and/or refreshing the page and then posting a reply after passing the captcha for the comment. Nothing works. Impossible to post a reply due to captcha not rendering below the reply box. I even tried filling in the captcha at the comment box and then filling out a reply and hitting the reply on the reply box. Never works.

As for all the other options, they do not make a difference. This issue was duplicated in two browsers as well.

You should only need to solve the Captcha once. As suggested, try leaving a comment (not a reply) and solve the Captcha. After, navigate to another page on our site, or refresh your page and check to see that your comment was successfully left. After, you should be good to leave a reply.

Please see my earlier comment on other browser issues that can prevent comments from appearing.

I tried on Windows 8 with the most current Firefox and with MSIE 10 and have run into this issue. I've been able to post in the past (last attempt being months ago).
