Patrollers and External Links

I've recently noticed that patrollers suffer from the box that requires you to type in letters and numbers in order to put in an external link. I was wondering if the patrollers could be removed from the group who get these? --Tim Talk 01:21, 5 January 2009 (EST)

Well I suppose that any patroller's opinion on this is going to be slightly biased anyway, but I'd still like to state my opinion.
The entire point of becomming a patroller is that you can be trusted to make good edits which do not need double checking by other users. The ReCaptca is designed to catch people or bots who are spamming external links onto pages; an activity which the patrollers are hardly going to try. - Game LordTalk|Contribs 09:17, 5 January 2009 (EST)
Patroller's should now be immune from the captcha. Let me know if that is not the case. -- Daveh 12:41, 1 February 2009 (EST)
I still seem to get it. - Game LordTalk|Contribs 08:20, 2 February 2009 (EST)
Indeed, I get the same. --Tim Talk 16:54, 9 February 2009 (EST)
