5 Failed Logins requires captcha

I know that you have this implemented for security reasons, however I think your implementation may be flawed unless this is how you expect it to work.

Here's how I see it working

If you fail to login 5 times the site should require you to login with a captcha, however once you successfully login with the captcha it should not require you to use the captcha ever time you login that day. I feel it should reset this.

The way it works on the site.

If you fail 5 login attempts it will require you to fill in a captcha EVERY-TIME you login to the site even after successful logins with the captcha.

Is this how you expect it to work?

If you fail five login attempts you'll need to fill in a captcha when you log in for 24 hours. It should reset after that.

We know it's a hassle to fill out a captcha, but we don't want anyone to be able to automate requesting login info. I know you're working on a site scraper so you are sending automated requests to Fuelly pretty regularly. For people using the site normally I don't think this is a problem.
