in reply to Captcha Signups?

I have 14 PCs at home. I can create as many logins as I want (almost) on every PC. That creates a high number of cookie sets. Furthermore, I can have as many (almost) e-mail accounts as I want.

"What prevents users from signing up multiple times...

Nothing as long as the user is ready to do it manually. And some users may be so committed.


Everything went worng, just as foreseen.

[Eily]: It can also be used to force a copy, and remove magic from a variable
[Eily]: there was a post some time ago about variable coming from regex taking more space than the same string defined directly IIRC
[Eily]: and if there's XS, make sure the scalar holds a string representation, that sounds like bad practice though (forcing that on the call side)
[choroba]: You should never pass $1 without double quotes to a sub
[choroba]: or "I should never", at least
[choroba]: that's not the sub's business
[Eily]: choroba but does $name = $1 solve the issue ?
[Eily]: if so, most subs start with my (VARIABLES) = @_ anyway
