    Blogdad Bob has lost it, he doesn't even lie effectively.

    Well, at least most of the comments (only two Kool-Aid drinkers so far) are crapping all over Blogdad Bob.

    That's just Bob typing with his other hand, plus Ronbo.

    The Boob is a total (expletive deleted) hat! Does he not think that people listened to the video and heard the screener admit that HIS action of disallowing her to board the plane was, in fact, retaliatory?


    RB, I completely agree with you about the Captchas and they seem to be getting worse. I wrote a comment yesterday which Bob apparently censored. That one took me 5 or 6 tires to get the secret code correct. I wrote another comment today and this time had to try 4 times before I got it right.

    BTW, the site to complain to DHS OIG is "unavailable" and has been since early this morning. :mad:

    Noteworthy is that he didn't bother to link to the video so people could see for themselves.

    They're probably deluged with spam from Xrumer (yes, (expletive deleted) spammers have apps, too), the same program that hit us a few weeks ago. It was recently "upgraded" to provide improved "support" for various social media platforms.

    If they're using the distorted graphic Captcha's where you have to enter the distorted characters in a box, they're way behind the curve. Spammers broke Captcha about four years ago -- they're a lot easier for software to read and respond to correctly than for people.

    I can tell you that the Spam for the TSA Blog page is horrible, even with all the anti-Spam measures in place, we have several everyday. Many of the ones we get are actual accounts on Blogger and (not being a spammer, I am uncertain as to how these programs work in a nuts and bolts fashion) run the gamut from porn to anything you could possibly imagine. We have also seen an increase from Europe or advertising Europeans locations and products. It is an ongoing battle on most "real" sites.

    Only on "real" sites that fail to deal with it using tools that are readily available. I've had a grand total of one spam in my forums since around 25 Aug, none in my WordPress blogs.

    If you're using the distorted-image Captchas on the TSA blog (a WordPress blog), you're years behind the curve.

    I have no clue what system they are using, but it is a fairly consistent.

    It's not that hard to deal with as long as one has anyone with a clue working on it. Of course, it goes without saying by now that the TSA has an ultimate shortage of competence (and honesty) in all categories from the checkpoint to the blog to Pissy.

    The TSA Blog may have spam issues, probably like all other blogs, but the censorship being done by TSA's Blogdad Bob, West, and others is clearly in violation of the United States Constitution and these peoples Oath to Defend said Constitution.

    If these TSA employees can't even honor our Constitution why would we expect them to honor anything else about our country?

    Gah, what an insipid and moronic blog post.

    And am I the only one who sees the delicious irony in TSA's complete incapacity to secure its own blog? ROTFLMAO!
