Should we impose word verification on the comments so people (that is, automated programs) stop using the comment threads to hawk their wares?

Responses from automated programs will not be counted.

Thoughts about the fairness and representativeness of this particular decision-making process are also welcome…as long as they don’t come from automated programs.

  1. I skim a lot of blogs, and so far yours is in the Top 3 of my list of favorites. I’m going to dive in and try my hand at it, so wish me luck.

    It’ll be in a totally different area than yours (mine is about michael thurman 6 week body makeover) I know, it sounds strange, but it’s like anything, once you learn more about it, it’s pretty cool. It’s mostly about michael thurman 6 week body makeover related articles and subjects.

  2. God, yes. I mean, I’m unsure as to whether or not the above comment is for real, or whether it’s just another damned spambot.

    It is quite fair and representative (um, unless the automatons protest).

    Josh, you should totally do the word verification.

  3. i can’t believe you’re excluding spambots from voting on an issue relating to the rights of spambots.

    king george eidelson, more like.

  4. Alek, how come you never post on my blog? You hate me, don’t you.

    Josh, i see you went ahead and implemented word verification before polling was complete. The state of Florida and the ghost of Renquist salute you.

  5. So I don’t understand if voting is over or not, and I guess this is what I get for having no home computer (although it would be unfair if I were disenfranchised b/c of a lack of access to advanced technology) but I love the spam. I think it should stay. The fact that people are using Little Wild Bouquet as a way to sell trinkets of disutility is so poetic and funny it hurts. Please don’t take it away.

  6. Proof that all one has to do to turn Felstiner out of the woodwork is to hold an election.

    On something… anything! as long as there’s a vote involved, Felstiner’s there.

  7. Interesting blog you have here, I landed here on accident. I was searching for something else and came across your site. I found it pretty interesting and entertaining. I got you book marked.

    I will pop back in from time to time to see what you have new here.

    My site is a bit different than yours, but just as entertaining and educational, I run a body makeover related site pertaining to body makeover related articles.

  8. Hey, I was searching blogs, and came onto yours, and I like it. I kinda landed here on accident while searching for something esle, but nice blog.. I got you bookmarked.
