Password, Pro sign up, Amazon = Frustration

Howdy all,

When I go to the login screen, the only option is to choose one of the portals OR create a new account. I have a Google account, so I choose to log in thru there.

That portal has my main password.  Then, when I go to check my IMDb password, its not the same...and I don't know my password.

I'm trying to sign up for pro, and when I go to do that- it takes me to Amazon.  Now I tried to sign in there, and their VERY cumbersome 'coding' system (with all the blurry letters... kept on telling me I was wrong so I tried to do the "hearing" one.

Well, after 3 mistakes on that, I finally got that.  Then Amazon asked me my full name on the account, and me... in my frustration probably hit the wrong letter, and now I'm blocked out of Amazon.

So, I miss out on getting the 'special deal' because it seems these sites make it very cumbersome, and so many gate keeping blockers, when a simple "Forgot Password" click could have solved the entire issue.
