Console browser does not display images.

oh, ok. thanks for the feedback. in this case i will have to hack some extra code...question is how to keep the bots out ?
i guess one would have to collect questions and answers that a human can answer better than a bot (not talking about ai here, mind you).
or work with ascii art. i think i like that idea better...
maybe something with roman numerals...
i have to think about that for a spell. but i will take it on the to do list.

where are you posting from, btw ? i see no server signature under your messages ?

cheers

ah, ok. yes, it is the frontend that adds the signature, not the news server. so if you just post with a reader, you will not have any.

to come back to the subject of text captchas, i think i will go with randomly generated text pieces, and let the user pick out every second or third character or something like that. to collect enough questions and answers seems like hard work, and ascii art might be distorted on the clients side.

cheers

ascii art - good idea.

yeah, it is charming, but i'm afraid not very robust: depending on the client it is likely to be distorted in some way and create frustration.
i have put a captcha text as an alt text to the image now. Posted on def4
