Ticketmaster

I guess it goes without saying that Ticketmaster's public relations team has no influence on what the Security Check displays.

(this is the screen I got while buying PJ Harvey tickets)

I've gotten: "inexpensive", "pornographer", and perhaps most disturbingly--"Dial-a-teen"

I don't want to turn this into a super long thread, but the best word I ever got was "Pat Morita." It was awesome.

How about "Ticket Bastards?"

Posted by Anonymous | April 24, 2009 11:51 AM

Haha the irony. That's exactly what was going through my mind while buying my tickets.

Posted by amphibian | April 24, 2009 12:04 PM

Ticket Bastards or even Ticket Basterds is acceptable, yes. Thank you.

My captcha code for Neko Case tickets was "unsettled woman". I El-Oh-El'd in real life.

Considering that she charged $60 for Irving Plaza, I'd say she deserves some criticism.

Those ticket prices were offensive.

Is p-r-i-c-y an acceptable alternate spelling of 'pricey'?

"Is p-r-i-c-y an acceptable alternate spelling of 'pricey'?"

in this case, I would vote "close enough"

Posted by brooklynvegan | April 24, 2009 2:27 PM

Who buys Fall Out Boy tickets anyway?

boston tickets were $25 (before the usury fees). i was pleasantly surprised they were that inexpensive.

Anyone else having this problem??

Nice, pity whoever put in the word list for that app couldn't spell. How about this one:

When the 'captcha' is 2 words, 1 is the genuine captcha security word (usually the distorted one). The other is a word from project where they are digitizing old texts in libraries. Instead of having fallible humans (paid to) read through and verify the text, they serve it up a multiple times in the captcha for us plebs to verify the word. Which is why you get some very odd words in there sometimes. Its a pretty cool use of technology. And a pretty good assessment of ticketmonster.

money, money, money!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, clairepetrol, as long as the would-be ticketbuyer gets the "genuine" word correct, s/he can get the other word wrong?

Posted by Anonymous | April 24, 2009 10:09 PM

yeah. there are times i know i've gotten one word wrong but have still made it through to the ticket page.

Welcome, Consumerist readers! Please note, it is customary for female BV commenters to post a link to photos of themselves so that male BV commenters can decide whether or not they'd hit it.
