Are You Human?
September 25, 2006
Away tomorrow, so reduced blog service from me this week. Also, since we were hit this weekend by a spamstorm of moderate intensity, I have enabled TypePad's new Human Test. Feel free to try it out and let me know how annoying it is. Back soon!
I consider myself human, and occasionally humane. Let's see whether TypePad also considers me human... apparently so.

Am I man or machine?

Daniel Dennett would say we are all machines. . .

It's looking like the human test isn't stopping the spam...
Maybe a better test would be a Spam Test? Surely this would be more prudent? ;-)

Well blast there goes my deep seated belief that I am God.

I'm guessing the spambots still have access to the old versions of posts prior to the human test... I've disabled comments on the worst spam-magnet - we'll see how it goes.
As for Dennett, well I certainly believe *he's* a robot, and therefore I don't care what he thinks about me. :D
