Are you human?

by Matt Cholick

I've had a bit of trouble with spam recently. It's hard to believe, given that the software running this site is completely custom.

That would actually be an interesting technical problem: creating a crawler that looks for any kind of form and then submits spam. Someone has been at least marginally successful at it, as both my comment and contact forms are getting hit. So, sadly, from now on proof of humanity is required for contact submissions.

Which of the following would you most prefer?
  1. A puppy
  2. A pretty flower from your sweetie
  3. A large properly formatted data file
