Captcha Apology

August 29th, 2005 by TimeDoctor

Readers who submit news via the web form will be greeted by the unfortunate face of that neccessary evil; the captcha. LinuxGames’ staff would like to apologize for this new obstacle in your path to submitting news. Recently, the submission form has been inundated with bogus submissions, flooding your friendly-neighborhood-editor man’s e-mail inbox and submission bin. Please feel free to grouse in the comments, and remember that you can still e-mail us.

    It is a shame when such measures must be take to prevent bogus submits. Keep up the good work, I have been reading this site almost every day since 2000 and always enjoy it, even submitted a couple.
