Pixy, I'm sorry to bother you, but I'm getting deluged with commentspam, and I can't figure out how to do anything to stop it... or slow it down. Help!

The robot is there to keep the driver happy at all times?
I would think that might be distracting depending on just how happy it wants to make you!

Wonderduck, I suspect the real reason you get lots of spam and I don't get any is that I require all commenters to be registered. It's not that onerous a requirement, and I suspect that most of your regular commenters are already registered because of me. (A lot of overlap in our readership.) It's a single change in your blog configuration in the control frames, and it should shut the flow of spam off completely.

I have an updated spam filter in place now, which catches this particular spambot and auto-bans the IPs. (It's using at least three different IP ranges, and multiple IPs from each.) That should slow it down a bit.

The whole wheel rotating thing is cool, but man that thing is just, UGLY. As for the in dash robot, I don't think it would last more than about five miles or so before I destroyed it, because that would make me a happy driver.

My reaction to it was that it would be a deathtrap in a car wreck.
