Ya, i understand the need for

Ya, i understand the need for captcha, but when it tells me straight up "denied" it's pretty obnoxious. I was just wondering if you guys wanted to buy my Adidas shoes and Tiffany jewelry as well as my legal prescriptions of Viagra!

EDIT: Which this post didn't actually trip the spam filter...

Hey Hugo, While we're not on

Hey Hugo,

While we're not on the subject.
Any idea why the inline-block is creating the odd gapping in this navigation?
http://www.braikbrothers.com.php5-11.dfw1-1.websitetestlink.com/
Can't seem to negate it and I don't want to resort to negative margins.
Would like a 1-2 pixel gap, it's currently about 4px.
Any clue?

/me grabs his pipe so he can begin skipping after he gets his answer

On #nav {word-spacing: -2px;}. On #nav li (word-spacing: normal;}.

If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.

I suppose we all have our functions: you're the spammer, Hugo's the comic, and I'm the useful, helpful guru at the top of the mountain. ;p

Is it possible to allow posts

Is it possible to allow posts without captcha after a certain number of posts? How about 583?

spamfilter

Fffft, I remember how Deuce and everyone else were laughing at me when I got that message, repeatedly, all the time, every time ("what? I don't have that problem, you must really be spamming"). I resorted to PMing people the answers to their problems, and then I gave up. Some time after the site was redone, it magically (with zero explanation) went away. I don't like magic spamfilters, esp when they block regular posters but still let others make 4 posts about something called Farmville, which last time I checked, has nothing to do with web design or CSS.

I'll never use Mollum software.

Lawlz I must be bitter.

I'm no expert, but I fake one on teh Internets
