CAPTCHA could've cut down the bogus registrations...

Of course, being a “Geek", I had noticed originally that the page where registration was taking place had no means of checking, or at least trying to prevent whom was human and who was a machine filling in the form.

Using a piece of code, or software called CAPTCHA a lot of the script generated registrations could have been avoided, whereby the career touts and the amateurs would use scripts to register time after time to better their odds, they would have had to do it manually, which wouldn’t have stopped these people, but it would have slowed them down quite considerably.

Of course, this system was based on good will, and as we have seen where there is good will, there are people who will abuse it.

There are also the people who will not take into account things that can go wrong.

to quote someone off a forum ( www.led-zeppelin.com )

Apparently, alot of people needed “Caution: HOT!” on McDonalds Coffee Cups
