    I dont mind reset password Protocols but is there a better way than the Captcha? I clicked all of the pictures with cars or buses or whatever in them and it just keeps putting more in front of you. A maddening process if I may say so

    John,

    This may be a poor analogy, but here it goes...

    Remember when we used to be able to meet our loved ones at the airport right at the gate without showing any ID?

    Well, terrorism changed all that.

    Same thing with the captchas. I absolutely hate them too. I have to deal with them all the time when I sign up for a site.

    Thing is, all that extra security has become standard today because of internet terrorism whereas, before such strenuous safeguards, bots were able to easily log onto sites like ours and wreak havoc.

    I will pass this up the chain to see if we can make things any easier, but I sort of doubt it.
