Not sure how I would stop that from showing up.

I can see having a sweet tooth, or to generalize, having "happiness", as being a selective trait. (Do I need to define that?) Muscle is not everything, after all... I'm with Dark in thinking that you have to create that want in any AI before it will work. I agree that AI must have a driving force, ...

Sure you're not talking about the drive to reproduce yourself? That can screw reasoning all to hell...
So to speak. ;)

Wait a minute... Maybe we shouldn't confuse human nature and intelligence. No joke intended. Many of the things we do as a result of our nature are not really "intelligent" in that they do not express the ability to learn or understand or to deal with new or trying situations. In fact, humans are q...

No matter how complex of an AI you develop, you will still not truely have an AI in the broad terms of AI. The AI simply learns a set pattern of what it is programmed to learn, within the confines of that programming. To have true AI, you need will+self rewriteable code. Without will, the AI doesn't...

Huh... there is an odd glitch regarding the hard limit which seems to associated with the page number you are requesting. I'll fix that later. Yeah, I used a simple ISSET for the mailto GET request. So, if it is set to anything, mailto gets turned off. You will notice that the way I code things, I d...

Ok... here we go... I made this page to be called via scripts using things like curl and such. http://deltashield.com/strap/embed/ Possible GET requests are: limit - Sets how many email addresses you want generated. Default is 100. Hard limit is 1000. page - Sets the page number. By default it is pa...

Hmm... RSS doesn't seem like it would be a good idea, because it contains too much misc information (Title, Date, Link, etc...) and it doesn't allow for very large content areas. Perhaps it would be better to simply create a version of the spam trap that doesn't contain the title, next page link, or...

I changed it. Now it uses seeded random values to generate predictable elements. These elements change once a week (probably Tue or Wed). Now when a search engine or a spider visits it, the page doesn't change with each reload so the spider has a harder time detecting the dynamic nature of the gener...

Domain checking takes time, as does checking MX records to determine viability of a domain for emailing. I built a signup page for one website where we tried to impliment a live email validity checker which would do exactly what you are talking about. We got a lot of mixed results leading to false p...

Yeah, VPN's are fantastic, but just wait until those countries start blocking popular VPN systems or detected VPN traffic entirely. I'm sure they are already thinking of it. I just need the generated email addresses to be random, but have a particular order that people see for a certain period of ti...

Yeah, I'm pretty sure you are safe from the wrath of Google if you simply link. I have to come up with a randomized but predictable method of generating the emails based upon date so that they are not 100% dynamic every time you visit. Then people will be able to place them behind graphic divs witho...

Google indexes about 30-50 pages or so and it detects that it is both a black hole and it is smart enough to also detect that the content is dynamic upon every visit. To do this, Google will hit the first page twice and detect that over 90% of the content is different every visit, so it gives up. Go...
