    HI,
    occasionally I post anonymously on PI, but have noticed that whenever the sentence to be typed is "puss in boots", it'll never work. It always comes up as having typed in the wrong 6-letter/number code, even though that was done ok. I just wait till the sentence to be typed is different, but can be annoying. Am I the only one this happens to?

    I have had that issue too.

    I definitly have this issue too.
    I thought it was because I was using Safari on a mac and I'm able to do it Firefox.

    But I doubt that's the real reason

    I had that problem the other night, only I was trying to search Cooking & Recipes without logging in.

    If you type "Puss in Boots" it will work, you need to include the opening and closing "

    I may have had that problem once or twice, but I thought at the time it was something else I've done wrong.

    I've definitely been able to search or post using "puss in boots" though, once I realised it had to be exact; CAPS, inverted commas and all.

    I would never have thought of using the " tbh. Me thinks thats an error so?
    I just hit F5 for the refresh goodness. The function keys are a very underated tool imo. :)

    I think it may be case sensitive - I did use Puss in Boots for a guest search (i.e. when not logged in) and it worked. I can't remember if I used quotes or not...
