I've just spent the past 7 minutes trying to convince Feedburner that I really do want to try and send a link by email. I've tried to convince them i'm human, to the tune of trying to decipher their Archaic Word test 13 times.
"Please enter the letters you see in the image into this text box". Yes, I've got it. I've done it. I've done it 13 times. 13 different varieties of letters. Now, You've got to be freaking kidding me.
Please enter the characters displayed in the box. If you are unable tosee the text clearly, you may reload this window for a new image.
Gotcha - i can see the letters clearly. I am entering them. You aren't believing me. Now, now is when i close my feedburner window, strike them off my list of RSS readers to ever consider using, and write a rant about the idiocy of some of anti-spam, anti-automated bots precautions. Yes you drive away the bots, but you also drove away a real person. Bravo.
