Good afternoon everyone,

    I'm sorry folks but if this organization opposes the use of CAPTCHA as a 
means of site security it has no business putting its presences on these 
sites that require blind people to use them; particularly if the audio 
quality is horrible and the person is both blind  and deaf. I'm all for 
establishing presences on social networks but not on those that require the 
use of a CAPTCHA as a part of registration process. As far as I'm concerned 
we're shooting ourselves in the foot if this continues!!
