Maybe I like the CAPTCHA After all - The lesser of Two Evils.
In the two hours I've had the new skin , it's been spammed with 14 posts. 14. And the CAPTCHA has been on for quite a while so i'm guessing that either some spammer read my post about disabling it and decided to let all h3ll break loose (highly unlikely), or they've been trying all along to no avail. Either way, I am starting to hate spammers worse than I did. For the time being though , I think I'm going to leave it off just b/c it was getting pretty frustrating. However it really looks like this won't be able to continue b/c well, the b4st4rds are pretty persistent.
Now, if [lco] the lower caseyed one wants a good challenge, he should write me for my proposed other project. It entails searching all of the email messages in my Gmail folder from phishers, and then writing a bot to hammer their servers with BS account information. I know, this is hardly a novel idea and a lot of people have proposed it. But i don't know that I have the skill to pull it off in a reasonable amount of time ([lco] the lower kc'ed one does though ). I know the mad scientist could probably assist and ole cornbread will probably be game too. With that in mind, perhaps we ought to put together a group of vigilantes and nail these son's of bitches back. Sure, it's probably a different group but looks like one of these a33holes got what he had coming to him. with people and I'm game for any non-violent approach. (Actually, if I actually caught the sh1theads who spammed my blog, I could probably be persuaded into getting medieval on them. . Just kidding.
