Constantly being asked several times to verify if I'm human when using Gamespot

So, this is what I'm prompted with this constantly:

We have detected a history of abnormal traffic from your IP address, so we ask that you please complete the following form to confirm that you are not a robot and are indeed a real person.

It's only started popping up recently which is strange. Also, the IP address keeps changing. I am not using a VPN.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

So I've disabled the Adblock Plus Chrome extension. That seems to solve the issue but is there a permanent fix for this? I've had Adblock running in the past with no issues.

I'm having the same issue. Almost every page it will pop up for me.

The worst is sometimes it seems to get caught in a loop and I can't get to the page. It'll give the message, I'll click the thing to confirm I'm human and try to move on....then I'm sent right back to the page again and then again...etc. Also like the OP, the IP address keeps changing, but I am not using a VPN.

I'm also using Chrome with that same extension.

@Jasurim: Must be a Chrome thing. Oh well hope it gets sorted!

Same here, only started happening from like 4 days ago though and I never had any issues for past 10 years.

@m7stech: We're looking into it - thanks for the heads-up, folks. Sometimes our anti-spam measures get a little aggressive.
