Captcha for Paid users

Captcha for Paid users

Short, concise description of the idea
Captcha for comments over 5000+ should not be applied to paid users.

Full description of the idea
I understand the need to discourage over usage so that others can use LiveJournal for free, but I also believe that paid users should retain some freedom from simple and slightly annoying hassles. The fact that over 5000 comments automatically generates a captcha for every comment left after is a little absurd especially if the commenter is a paid user. We, paying customers, should be free from limitations on comments.

I understand that it is in order to reduce load on the database servers and ensure that the site is accessible to all users, but some of us pay to use your service. Wouldn't it be logical to give priority to those who actually pay for space on the servers?

An ordered list of benefits
  • For those who pay for the service, this would just be another perk just as ad free usage is. There would be no limitation on how many comments one could make just as there is little to no limitation on how much space is available for journal usage.
  • Frustrations for avid users will go down.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • This will increase server load, but only minutely.
  • Most likely be difficult to code.
