The issue seems that one has to wait to solve the captcha. If you solve it within 15 seconds or so then the web site think's you are flooding. The time measuring should start after we solve the captcha successfully not before as it results in preventing quick solves from actually sending any messages. It will still prevent flooding because it will be in play for the next message, but it shouldn't be in play for the first message one sends since it prevents real users from posting normally.

Yeah, no kidding. The captchas are so trivial that I can usually solve them in about three seconds... then get stuck in this same loop. Drives me nuts.

Don't say that! Next thing you know we'll have to solve a hyperbolic PDE or Schrodinger's wave equation for the carbon atom just to post!

It would be nice, also, if when we click on a link in the forum 
that it takes us to the last page/message(Scrolls down to it) 
rather than forcing us to do this. Most of the time we don't want 
to have to either read through all the messages or click on the 
last page in the first place. If we are following a thread most 
likely we have already read the front of the it. If not, which 
generally only happens once(the first time), it won't be a big 
deal to click on the first page.

You can click on the time of the last post (on the right side) to go to the last post. At least on desktop.
