Ha ha, writing those articles I wanted to was a thing that decidedly did not happen, whoops! Thanks depression! I have a draft of an article about why CAPTCHAs are bad, but it'll probably take a solid while before I gather the spoons1 to actually getting around to finishing it.
So just to get something on here I thought I'd do a little q&a. Ask me some questions in the comments and I'll answer them. I got the idea when someone on fedi2 suggested more people should have a Curious Cat page. I wanted to make one, but it turns out you have sign in with a Twitter or Facebook account, and I do not want to give those hell conglomerates any more data than absolutely necessary, please and thank you.
You can attach your name to your question if you feel like it, but you can also just write “anonymous” in the name field if you don't. I'll keep checking in on the comments here, so if you write one months after I published this I'll probably still reply.
mental energy more or less, for those not familiar with that term ↩
