Two months ago I posted about the damn annoying Capcha, or whatever it is called. And I get having to have a defence against SPAM.

But I just had to identify 2 different screens of motorcycles and two screens of trains. And some of the photos I couldn't tell what they were. finally I'm logged on here.

Yesterday it took me I don't know how long to get logged on.

I try to on rare occasion contribute to this forum. And it certainly has benefited me. But I'm not going to invest the time it tqkes to get on any longer.

I'm currently working "Soul Sacrifice" lesson by Tom Finch. It is just hugely helpful. Just a great lesson of a song I've wanted to learn most of my adult life. But when I'm through with it I'll no longer be a subscriber.

Please forgive the rant. But I thought you would want to know my reasons for leaving.

Guitars: 2014 PRS Santana, 2013 PRS Paul's, 2009 PRS Hollowbody, 1972 Gibson ES-325, 2012 Fender Strat American Standard, 2012 Yamaha Pacifica, Seagull S6 Classic

Hey matonanjin2,

That thing is frustrating. I hope you get past your current frustration and hang in there, I have always found you to be a great contributing member of the forum.

All the best,

Can I have your guitar when you go?

I agree with your frusteration with the capcha time wasting process. I also agree it is not very user friendly, to the point of being rediculious.

However, everybody gets to chooses their own prioities. I am sticking with guitar tricks. So I will also put my hat into the ring for who gets your guitar.

Captcha is a total pain in the........

John, I assume you are referring to my PRS Santana?! That doesn't make sense at all, does it?!?!?! If I can finally play Soul Sacrifice, after all these years learning, why would I give up the guitar that I would most like use to play it?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? In fact, not "most likely" but definitely! Does not compute

All you have to do is hit return and the cloudflare thing goes away. You don't have to click on any photos. It's annoying, but not that big a deal. Plus I'm happy to be reminded that I am not, in fact, a robot. I think... would I know it if I were... hmmm...

Thanks for the tip, faith83. I'll try it although I don't think I've ever spent as much as a minute working my way through the 'security' even when I had to hold my laptop close to find those motorcycles or was taken to a second page of 'motorcycles' or had to start over 'cause I messed up the first test.

Sixty seconds or less hasn't bothered me... maybe because guitar teaches a lot of patience.

Awww, shoot! I've got a family member who is a lead designer at PRS and even he doesn't get a discount. At least, he says he doesn't.

Crosswalks... bridges... stoplights... my problem is that I overthink things just like on the SAT and multiple choice tests. I start asking existential questions about what, really, constitutes a "bridge"...

But as I say, other than when it occasionally asks me to click on existential bridges when I post a comment, just hit return and breeze on by.
