I have the WP-reCAPTCHA plug-in enabled for my Mozilla blog.  Some time recently it stopped working.  Instead of showing up at the bottom of a post, I now just get this message:

  Input error: Invalid referer

Is this something that is under server-ops's control?  Thanks.

I suspect this may have broken due to the recent migration of blog.mozilla.com (now .org) to a new cluster in PHX1... this happened a week or so ago.

Adding Jason, he did a lot of work with WP plugins to make the migration happen. Any ideas?

Actually, this may have been caused by the com->org name change. I suspect reCAPTCHA is expecting requests to come from the old name, blog.mozilla.com. That would explain the "invalid referer" message.

I don't know that we have generic site-wide reCAPTCHA API keys... so I followed the link and just made you new ones. This seems to be working again!
