SPAM - Can it do math? by TebgDoran SPAM - Can it do math? by TebgDoran
So the story goes a little something like this:

I was chatting with a friend of mine who's also a fellow web-programmer, and I brought up the subject of the blog software that I wrote. I then mentioned the spam attack that hit me on April second, and he told me of the system he uses for his spam-protection: a math equation. He told me that, at the time he researched it, there was no information on spam-bots being able to do math. I asked him if he minded if I implemented his system if ever I needed it, and he explained to me what I needed to know.

Then he said "...double check on that 'spam doing math' thing though..." as a caution.

Well, this is what came into my head, and I had to get it out.


Made in Paint.NET with GIS for the Spam can, pencil, and lined paper.

Images are probably copyrights of their original owners, but it's the internet, so the places from which I got 'em probably aren't their original owners anyway. ;)

Enjoi.

Excellent work, Dan. The can looks like it's actually thinking!

It's the furrowed brow that does the trick. ;)

The friend with whom I was speaking mentioned the can scratching its chin with the pencil eraser, and I think that really helps too.

Thanks for the comment. :)

Oh, looks who's correcting whom! Do you mean to say that "LOL" is a properly-spelled word? ;P

Never meant to say anything like that, Mister Grammar Master. Just laughing at you who spells all things as properly as possibly using chat-speak.

And now I throw cookies at you to vent my anger.
