Well, it turns out much of my problem was not getting some of the scripting done right in the “turing test” spam filter. (Repeating the funny numbers.) I haven’t had a bad spam post in about a week, so all is better. I’d still love to get my hands on these people, but as I think I reported earlier, it looks like they are in India.
Okay, I’m really pissed. Upgrade that earlier fantasy of me in a locked room with one of these bastards and a baseball bat. Now I’m actually visualizing splintered shards of skull-bone wedging into soft nerve tissue. I’m pissed.
Of course, a calm person would realize that any protective measure is just going to challenge them to create more clever ways to get past. Yes, you guessed it: I’m still cleaning up $#(%*&$%%$#W(*&! graffiti.
If you want to post a comment you’d better get out your glasses. The passcode has been updated to 9 digits AND it is now the exact same color as the grid of lines. You brain and eyeballs will be more challenged, but I’m going to hope that I have better luck keeping the crap off my website.
