Pay-Per-Click Services

Recently we got a few promotion coupons to try out a few new PPC services from LookSmart, Ask.com and Microsoft’s AdCenter and together with Yahoo! Search Marketing (what a bad name for a product, Overture would be much better) found that none has the same level of sophistication or put enough thought into designing a usable user-interface as Google AdWords. Kudo to Google!

Javascript regular expression in Opera

The following Javascript code works in Firefox & Internet Explorer but not in Opera. Different browsers interpret Javascript code differently.

$pTxt = $pTxt.replace(/(.|\n)+<\/tag>/g,'');

$pTxt = $pTxt.replace(/[\s\S]+<\/tag>/g,'');

Getting quite a few spam into our support ticket system.

These guys also use open proxies, those that might not send spam (so the block lists are not reporting them) but allow submission of spam.
