Spam Protocols, Stickers and Other Stuff

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I’ve re-enabled the “Captcha” thing – which weeds out spam by requiring people who are not registered users to manually enter numbers/letters presented via a visual prompt before their posts will be accepted.

I hate that this is necessary – and I realize it’s a hassle. But unfortunately, it is necessary. The spam bots are relentless and will over-run the site if steps are not taken trip them up. I’d personally like to cut the testicles off all spammers – who are ruining what ought to be an electronic Agora¬†– a¬†marketplace for the free exchange of ideas and other useful things. But this will have to do for now.

I am doing an interview this morning (Tuesday) with a radio show out in the Midwest. I’ll get the audio clip up as soon as possible.

I’ve already posted a new Vidcast – me monologuing about a topic, with my trusty camera rolling. I’d appreciate your comments, pro or con. Do you guys like these Vidcasts? Should I keep doing them? Will you help me to reach a wider audience by sending links and so on to people you know?

Speaking of appreciation: Thanks are owed to several people who recently sent some money via the mails (and also PayPal). I am working hard to get you something additional in return – as a small tangible “thank you” for supporting EPautos. It will be – I hope – something like the sticker you see here, with the “EPautos” logo and URL and – possibly – a slogan, such as “throw it in the woods!” or “Clovers ruin everything!”Clover sticker Mark 2

I am having some difficulties, by the way, actually “dummying” up the sticker. I have the image, but transposing the URL (and slogan) into the image has proved a challenge. If there’s anyone out there with photoshop/graphic design skills who is willing to help, that would be immensely appreciated.

Please contact me, either here or via e-mail (

Thanks again to all of you!






  1. Learning about the “Drudge Formula” might make this worthwhile to you:

    “This is big. I am going to be conducting an online class on Saturday, November 15 […]

    I will be discussing all the secrets I have learned blogging here at EPJ. It is a myth that there is no market for libertarianism. I see, day after day, other libertarian bloggers make all kinds of mistakes that prevent them from becoming successful bloggers. The mistakes occur in marketing, content, style and format. That will change for those who take this course. […]

    this course will be of utmost value to you.

    In this course, I will cover everything from how to get started, to the best ways to generate revenues. It will include detailed descriptions of the many techniques I have used to build my traffic and details of what I learned from testing different methods before even launching EPJ. I will even detail my famed “Drudge Formula” and explain how to employ it.” …
