Google's Fetch As Google feature within the Google Search Console now forces you to use a captcha each and every time you try to submit the page to the index. You can try it yourself, go to the feature under "Crawl" > "Fetch as Google." Then fetch a URL and then click the Submit to Index.

When you do that, this box will come up asking you to complete the captcha:

Google Fetch As Google Submit To Index Now Requires Captcha

It is an easy captcha to click, but the captcha use to only come up every 10 or so pages.

I am not sure why people need to use the feature so often but if they do, it might take them an extra click to get the task done.
