Failbook - Captcha

I really dislike Facebook.  Among the countless reasons why I refer to it as Failbook is the fact that there is no "white list" for links associated with your profile.

A handful of times each week, I receive a notice that some individual (a person that I've never heard of) has posted a link on my wall.  It always ends up being spam - and, to Failbook's credit, it's usually gone before I can delete it.  (The unasked question would be, "How did a strange third party defeat Failbook's security and privacy - mine is turned all the way up - to post something on my wall in the first place?")

On the other hand, each and every time I try to place a link to my own blog, I'm forced to enter a captcha to do so.

Most of the time, the captcha words are simply unreadable.  It's not unusual for me to have to click the "Try different words" link a half-dozen times before I can even read what I'm supposed to type.

This morning Failbook took things to an entirely new level of frustration...


  1. WTF?????? Sorry, that's all I have. ;)

  2. Hmm.... as frustrating as that probably was, at least it looks cool? -- =D

  3. LMAO!! I don't speak hieroglyphics either bro, unless we're talking about Del the Funkee Homosapien and his super-group. ;)

  4. When I started reading, I am thinking you can't read the captcha because, like me you wear glasses from working online- but no
    Facebook bores me it is slow

  5. This is one of those that I just had to shake my head in disbelief... LOL
