Strange message

Postby Kwackman » Mon Feb 03, 2020 9:40 pm

Hi,
I've just had a odd email allegedly from "no-reply@soundonsound.com".
Just checking in to see if I'm the only one?

That is a legitimate SOS email address (I've had one earlier today), was the content questionable?

Hmm, I just had a Captcha come up that said "Prove you're not a Robjohns"...

I just wrote and submitted an 800-word piece on analog electrical level measurement standards* and it said "Thank you, that proves you're no Robjohns!"...

*Presumably there were one or more factual errors....

800-word piece

Only 800 words? Clearly not a Robjohns article, these algorithms can't be fooled that easily.

To paraphrase Albert Einstein:
One Robjohns I can accept, but if two, why not infinity?
