Time to say Good-Bye!
No, not to blogging nor the oes tsetnoc contest (I am now on place 21 btw ;-(), but to my latest plugin! Remember the cute images you had to select to verify that you are a human and to be able to submit your comment? I discovered this morning that it stopped working, reason being the plugin site itself was down. So I disabled it and waited patiently.
Some hours later and Elxsy was up again. No, nothing on their blog what had happened and no answer to a comment I made on their own blog.
Now, if a plugin only works, when another site is up, then something is not right in my books. Especially as this malfunction meant, that nobody was able to post any comments until I disabled the ImHuman plugin.
I tried, as the plugin site came back online, to re-install it and it would still not work. Somehow I found this not very comforting and decided to live in future better with my not-beloved spammers, then with no commentators at all. Also, the idea to depend with the functioning of my blog on another site, had something, shall I say “creepy”?! Also security concerns were suddenly in my head. But perhaps I am only paranoid?! So, time to say Good-Bye to the “ImHuman Captcha”!
Does anybody here know of a similar plugin that uses images instead of text? And is secure?
On a more positive site: I discovered a new blog this morning, before the plugin fun started. Here my “blog post find of the Day”. Webcareergirl has written an excellent article about how to avoid overspending on internet marketing. I really can relate to the part of buying too many new domains 😉
So, bye for today, take care and don’t forget to share a link to your favorite image captcha in the comments 😉 SY
