Got that? – see how *not* in charge – I really am?

In looking for a (free) method of getting the user emails for my [Dark Times Newsletter], I stumbled over something called Contact Form 7: that’s very good, but it also warned about using old version of reCAPTCHA by Google, and they were right! – I couldn’t send a test message with it on my site.

Not that it was even working, ..Because I’d set it up when all you needed was HTTP and not HTTP(S): as the bloody monolith called Google has insisted, and now what everyone is begrudgingly using.

HTTP Bullshit aside.

Getting the V3 set up on my site was relatively painless, .. and now I have a (curly side-slide-in-Icon) that says I’m protected – Whoopee! – But it’s one whop too early.

Firstly, .. it has slowed my site down, but not by that much.

Secondly  .. I then foolishly decided to rely on it as method to protect my site, and then stupidly reset the click box, [Anyone can register].

Fuck me, but within five minutes of doing that .. I only had three sodden Bots register, but they weren’t fucking Bots, (they were real people), and one of the little shits had even managed to change (his/her) password before I managed to deleted the lot.

The Contact Form 7 looks quite good, and I’ll plod on with that till I’ve mastered it.

  • But am I in charge on the rest? – No I’m fucking well not.

Thanks for staying with me, Jessica.

Ain’t that so cute? – An innocent looking form on a web page; asking you to register to go on their exclusive mailing list: never seen that before? – { Huff! }
