Ok, question about this. When you guys are talking about a captcha to listen to the online player, does this mean that in order to listen, every single time that a captcha must be entered, or is it a one time only deal?
if it's a one-time only deal, and a solution can be found that is accessible, then i don't see a problem, but if it has to be entered every single time you listen? that's rediculous!
If Sirius wanted me to become a subscriber well they sure as hell lost me as a customer right there.
I hope that xm does not go this route.

their accounts with others and Howard Stern had to have a big
part in this. XM satellite will probably institute this captcha
soon. It's a matter of time.
