Yet Google would have to know what the address numbers really was in order to validate the reCAPTCHA, so that can hardly be why they are doing it. They don't need to crowd source an answer that they already know.

Doubtful. They post two images. One they know and one they don't. They use the data for the one they don't, combine it with data from 1000s of other people who have also solved that captcha to get an accurate picture of what that particular number is. They use the one they know to validate the recaptcha data and verify you're human...

I'm rather curious about how the site passwords are stored on this site. My assumption was the all the passwords were encrypted with the master password. If this is the case and only some of the passwords are encrypted with the new password because the databases weren't "caught up" or if someone forgets their master password and needs a password reset then wouldn't the account be unrecoverable?

Be careful when a loop exits to the same place from side and bottom.
