New sign up - Kidding right?

MNations are you serious?

Friend just bought a Surface Pro 2 and I suggested he sign up and check the forums. I started the sign up process using my computer and Firefox and no matter what I tried I could not get the Captcha to display so I got a "Incorrect answer to Captcha." DUH. I turned off all Add-ons and plug-ins - same.

Not to be beaten, I am ashamed to say, I launched IE11 - gack! On entering the Password verification the Captcha dropped down. All good, but then you want me to sit through a commercial to get the answer to the Captcha? Yeah, good, I'll get right on that, -- as if this is the only Surface forum on the internet.

XX - and that does not stand for Forum Un-bookmarked. :)

Noticed a drop in sign-ups lately?
