and so is everyone else
To Metafilter users: first, sorry I can't respond in your own thread. I don't want to pay five dollars to post in a blog's comments. But I did want to clarify that I only started calling the form thingy a hack after others did. Yeah, okay, I do like the sound of it. But no, clearly this is sub-sub-script kiddie level trickery, not anything impressive at all. What can I say? A search for "butterstick" on packetstorm doesn't return any hits.
But it did at least appear to work initially. As Catherine pointed out in your comments, it's only today that it ceased to function. The whole thing is a testament to the zoo webdev's laziness, not my personal awesomeness.
Now I promise to stop talking about this, because, as mentioned, it's gotten way more attention than it deserves. The name is the thing, people. Butterstick. Say it with me. Make t-shirts. Spread the word.
