For a while now I have been noticing this, and not just on the SE network, but all the sites that use the new re-CAPTCHA system, and I have tested this on many different OSs and also many different browsers, but the problem still remains, most of the time if I click on the button which should give me a CAPTCHA test, it just does its spinning thing, then shows a big green tick and allows me to continue without actually testing me (this happens probably 98% of the time). So where should I report this issue?

  • It's a feature not a bug ;) I believe how it really works is not publicised by Google. Try it in private mode (aka incognito), it will most likely give you a test to make sure you're human.

  • It always tests me, probably due to a large collection of cookie n script blockers - why I keep having to identify pizza is beyond me...

That is part of reCaptcha's system, I believe. And because of that, the people to report that issue to is reCaptcha, especially if it's global across all the reCaptcha things you see.

The developer's FAQ for this is here. They also have a discussion group on reCaptcha where you would likely go to report issues with reCaptcha.

Note that I don't think they always force you to do a captcha check, at least not on all sites. I get reCaptchas on some sites that require actual captcha checks, others I just have to click the box. (Although I never have to captcha check here on StackExchange sites.)
