Do you suffer from idiots? Try Natural Selection!

Services like Akismet are staggeringly awesome for filtering out blog comment spammers, but offer no defences against common or garden variety dickheads. Which is how it should be, of course — one man's dickhead could be another man's.. I dunno.

Anyway, ignorance, foolishness and a disregard for personal injury all feature prominently in my definition of noxious idiocy. Which is why I choose to prevent anyone with "FunWebProducts" in their user agent string from commenting on this site.

It tastes like natural selection, because it is!
