Easy way to Destroy Motley Fool BOTS
Captchas still exist everywhere from Forums to Membership Subscriptions and so throughout the Internet. I've found out many years ago that the Captcha Code you have to type to sign up for something DOES NOT WORK to eliminte robot invasion.
I think www.fool.com is just the latest victim from those who believed CAPTCHAs were the answer to eliminating BOTs. Ticker Replies to comments...Blog Replies to Comments... and most likely this one will get invaded by BOTs.
Here's a simple way to eliminate BOTs.
Set up an automatic process to eliminate everyone's account on Motley Fool that has ZERO CAPS picks and ZERO CAPS score.
This will allow normal users to carry every once in awhile a ZERO CAPS pick portfolio.... Because your CAPS SCORE will still exist from your previous CAPS picks....
But those accounts that not only currently have ZERO CAPS picks....but also ZERO CAPS score.....
Those accounts are all entirely the BOT accounts. Seems like it should be possible to set up an automatic removal of these BOT accounts in 1 fell swoop once every 7 days.
