It's about damn time.
Today I left a comment on a site that has a spam block. I pressed "submit comment" and was shown a phrase to type to ensure a human was writing:the abandoningThanks, Captcha. Thanks a lot.
Oh, my.I'm starting to think of those Captcha phrases like Horoscopes, Fortune Cookies, or the I Ching--not relevant for telling the future, but relevant to enlighten us on our own states of mind depending on how we interperet the phrase. Proof of concept: Whilst posting on a podcast, my Captcha phrases were primarily nonsense words and word fragments. Should be a word. Has all the linguistic trademarks of a word. But it's not a word. Dovetails perfectly with my brain fog from this morning.
