You know what? Fuck your login!

I was holding off writing this post until I was calmed down about it, but you know what? This is angryinterface.

I submit Exhibit F:


Yet Another Fucking Login Prompt. I saw Shapeways on Mashable and thought "hey, I would love to fabricate some gears, and maybe some other stuff", so I go to look at their site.

But nooooooo, you have log in. Does no one understand that I (and everyone else) have a thousand fucking logins to every site in existence? Do I really need to login to BROWSE your site? That's ridiculous.

I hate your site, I hate your stupid login prompts.

Hi!

I work with Shapeways, and I'm so sorry you were faced with yet another log-in screen. I know how frustrating that can be.

Currently Shapeways is in private-beta mode, when we launch, we will not require users to log-in to browser the site, so this problem should be resolved when we open from beta.

Thank you for visiting though, and I hope you were able to sign-up and experience the Shapeways beta anyway.

Best,
Jessica

I appreciate your response, but:

"I work with Shapeways, and I'm so sorry you were faced with yet another log-in screen. I know how frustrating that can be."

Yeah, so fix it.

"Currently Shapeways is in private-beta mode, when we launch, we will not require users to log-in to browser the site, so this problem should be resolved when we open from beta."

So?

"Thank you for visiting though, and I hope you were able to sign-up and experience the Shapeways beta anyway."

Didn't want to.

The whole point of this is the negative experience being walled off with a login prompt has given me. I'm just not really interested anymore.
