Is there problem now on chat gpt?

I am a Plus subscriber.
I can’t log in to Chat GPT right now. Am I the only one who has the problem of having to solve a “puzzle” every time I ask a question even if I successfully log in?

That puzzle is a captcha provided by a third-party provider. OpenAI seems to use it on plus accounts, likely to discourage actual bot scraping of valuable gpt-4 answers that would cost much more by API.

Users indeed report they are caught in the crossfire, with little common reasons why the service might have decided “we need to test if this is a bot”.
