    Question Kill the Poor.

    Bad idea ?

    I kind of think so, too.

    I was completing the registration process on IMDb, the movie database web site.
    I had just completed the "Enter your Email Address" stage, and had gone to my email to find the link to click on to verify that my email address was valid.

    So....I click the link, and was taken to the final stage of the IMDb registration proces.
    An IMDb web page pops up, a page that is designed to stop bots from mass registering names.
    It has the "Type in the Letters Shown to Complete Regristration".

    Well, this is what was shown to type in:

    Name:  KillthePoor.bmp

    Now, maybe it is just me, but ...... is that kind of in poor taste ?

    Usually right, but sometimes not entirely factually correct.

    Hahahaha, that's pretty messed up. Usually those things are random letter / number generators, but I think the odds are against that entire phrase coming up.
    If you will it, dude, it is no dream.

    Anyone remember the weird phrases that came on AOL floppies and CD's in the mail? Randomly generated, but you sometimes got some pretty peculiar combinations.

    half the time the letters look like some drunk guy wrote them and you need decoder glasses to figure out what the letter is!

    I know, its not like the bot or computer program can see how the letters are written, its so it can't be done without the secret word.. so make it so we can actually read it..
