I'd Like To Take This Time To Bitch About The Internet

I can't take it anymore. The registering and signing up and signing in and verifiying. You sign in to Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Blogger, Wordpress, Technorati, Mom Bloggers, Snapfish, Photobucket, Realtor.com, 1-800-PetMeds, Webkinz, Amazon, Goodreads, and StatCounter. Every blogging network, bank, insurance carrier, cell phone company, porn site, cable provider, magazine, and department store makes you create an account. Having a baby? Graduating? Moving? More registering. About to stab your neighbor in the ear with a dull pencil? Sign up first!

Then the email addresses. Don't act like you don't have an email address that you use for singles clubs, porn sites, and Publishers Clearing House. Those of you who get to talk to grown ups all day probably have a work email. I've got one for the crap I never plan on signing into again, the one that my blog stuff goes to, and then my actual email. Up until recently I still had my college email address and I'm pretty sure I've even got an email with my cable/internet provider but damned if I know how to get into that one. So now you've got 600 different email addresses and God help you if you forget login info for GetOffTheInternetAnd GetALife.com cuz you will not be able to remember which email address you registered with them.


Also, I'd like to kill the mother fucker who created CAPTCHAs. CAPTCHA this, bitch

I feel this. That is why I use Opera. I log in once, save the info., and never have to fuss with remembering my login name or email or password at any site.

As for the verification codes, I hate them too. I blogged about them too the other day. I want everyone to turn them off. What a pain they are. I am at the point where I won't comment sometimes if they are on. It gets too annoying.

I also still have my college email. I am SHOCKED they haven't deleted me. I mean really, it's been years. I still check it too, but I never get anything real. Just junk.

Capchas(I hate them so much I'm not even going to spell the word corrrectly) annoy me so much. And I have so many sign ins and different passwords to so many things I usually get locked out after using my 5 login attempts. Arghhhhh

AMEN! I have a notebook full of usernames and passwords so I don't forget them.

You just read my mind!

It starts to get ridiculous after a while.

I'm with ya here!! But then again, I'm with Sara too cuz I have a notebook page filled with them! How else in Jackass Neighbors name would I keep up with them?? Oh, and btw, no party, you know why, but at some point this weekend, I'm thinking we should drink ourselves into oblivion, surely it will make me feel better, right?? You with me? You coming South or am I gonna have to come North and kick some neighborly ASS? Cuz right now, I can BRING it Sista!!

I agree! I have so many emails, work, blog, ones I use just to sign up for things, family it gets ridiculous but I try to set up thunderbird so I can easily switch between them and it does all the login crap

I hate Captcha's too but then again I hate having a spam website crawler hit my site and post 50 viagra and penis enlargement comments in 5 minutes so I keep it. :( Don't hate me lol
