Kathleen, apparently the web thinks you are HOT !

Mine usually says homely, so there might be something to it.

I have seen this, though not with 'hottes' (consider that a compliment!), in picking up on-line greeting cards.  Usually it's something pretty generic and sometimes their writing is hard to read . . .  HA! Kathleen Daniels

Not I, here.  I get captchas on other sites when filling out forms, etc.  Have never had that "unusual traffic" error.

 

My take on what you are getting that:  Someone on your internet provider's network is likely scanning/hacking or otherwise sending bad traffic intentionally (bad actor) or unintentionally (compromised system).  Could be from a computer on your network, could be from some other house in the city.  They could be doing it to the site you are visiting or the site you are on could have a "cloud enabled firewall" which shares log data with hundreds or thousands of other sites and if a trend is seen amongst other sites, it blocks the offending address (or slows down the range of addresses) on all the sites.  I have this on my website.
