May I share a frustration with you?
For a little over a year now, I have been trying to upgrade my FLICKR account to a "pro" account. It is relatively inexpensive, and it allows the user unlimited photo uploads, and various other benefits that the free account doesn't offer.
For some reason, FLICKR doesn't seem to want me.
Let me preface this by saying I am not completely illiterate in computing, networking, and such. I work on a computer daily, I shop, bank, and pay bills online. I can set up a simple network, and I can do some simple programming. The bottom line; I am not an idiot.
OK, so every time I try to upgrade my FLICKR account, I get stuck in an endless loop of Yahoo log in screens asking for my password.
Over and over and over.
I can log into Yahoo just fine for other things.
I can log into my Flickr account just fine. I can up load photos just fine.
It is only when I try to upgrade the account that I get stuck in an endless loop of password hell.
I have changed usernames.
I have changed passwords.
I have cleared cookies.
I have cleared cache.
I have disabled firewalls.
I have sent dozens and dozens of emails.
I have received dozens and dozens of condescending replies assuring me that I need to set my computer to accept cookies and all problems will vanish.
I want to shove cookies up those emailer's asses is what I want to do.
I know how to accept cookies. I have tried this from 6 different computers from 4 different locations. I have tried it in Internet Explorer and in Firefox.
I shop online. I have purchased everything from books, movies, golf clubs computers, cameras, even furniture online. I have never had a problem. It is this one thing.
A freaking year. You would think in all that time someone in the Yahoo organization would step up to the plate and resolve this issue.
For the last time morons - IT IS NOT MY COMPUTER!!!!!!!!! There must be a glitch in my account. Again 6 different computers from 4 different locations.
A freaking YEAR!!!!!!
