[Friends] straw pole regarding difficult captchas

Hi Donna, I hate them all!
Even the so-called "accessible capchas" from folks like Google.
I'm attaching a column I wrote for Abledbody.org on that topic.
I especially hate the capchas that are required whenever I want to
subscribe to an e-mail newsletter, such as those available from Epicurious!
And, while I'm on my soap box, I am totally annoyed by the e-mail ads
I receive from companies I like to purchase products from that are
just inaccessible pictures of a sale ad, which, of course, my screen
reader can't access. J-Jill and Cooking.com are two companies who
frequently send me e-mailed coupons and ads that I cannot access! (I
know it's a different topic, but I wish the committee could tackle
this issue as well!)
Thanks, and the link to the column is:
