I'm sick of it, and I'm not going to take it anymore!

  1. I’m not going to stress about title capitalization anymore. I instinctively know those rules of English grammar that make sense, but I’ve gotten sick of having to look up the rules of proper titling every time I write a post (or use short titles to avoid looking up said rules), so from now on I’m just going to use sentence caps.
  2. I’m absolutely sick and tired of spam, and I’m going to try to find ways to use reCAPTCHA to help avoid some of it. I’m trying out the WordPress plugin for comments here, and then I’m also toying with a home-grown, in-your-face email filter for unknown senders. Of course, common wisdom on the topic says not only will it not work, but it’ll also likely piss off some of my legitimate contacts to boot. Well, whatever. I have to keep them stirred up about me.

Anyway, there’s lots of important stuff to post, but I haven’t felt like messing with it for a couple of weeks. Hopefully will get to that soon…

    This is not spam

    this is also not spam, but incorrect recaptchas with this new skin are impossible to catch…

    And the formatting is weird in Firefox.

    Hmm… I’m actually going to disable reCAPTCHA until I can hack the gnarly new theme to NOT close the comments section when there’s a captcha failure. It should probably stay open when the comments refresh anyway…

    I finally got around to making H2.0 play somewhat nice with reCAPTCHA if a user goofs the challenge. This is after deleting something like a hundred automated crap comments. Wootiehoo… 🙂
