    The moment I run into this, I will not buy from or otherwise use the web site that presents me with an interactive ad preventing me from accomplishing my goal.

    Bad news guys (for about half of you anyway). I ran into one the other day, and the company that was being advertised was Dish.

    I don't have a problem with it, so long as it quickens my access to things. CAPTCHA was getting harder and harder to pass as twisted the letters were.

    Peace,

    Sometimes I had to try 4 or more entries before I got the CAPTCHA letters right. I prefer the "solve a simple math problem" approach, but I've only seen that in a couple places.

    The website I have for my company uses a "What color is grass?" or "What color is snow?" question system. Much better in my opinion.

    Y'all must not have seen these yet. They run a video ad before you even get the code/question to solve.
