It's a pretty effective technique

Depends what you're protecting. In general I've found the opposite - even ignoring the accessibility issues. For two reasons:

  • These things can be read by computers if somebody clever is coding them. Noticed how much more distorted the images on Yahoo are getting? Now I'm getting them wrong more often than not and I have pretty close to perfect vision (in one eye anyway :-). Escalation can only lead to images that more and more people with "normal" sight have problems with.
  • There are hacks to get around them. The fake-registration technique you mentioned is in wide use now. For anything that involves even a small dollar value for getting a registered account the Evil Person hires sweatshop labour that just sits there and registers accounts eight hours a day.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
