Blogger Spam Filter: Not Totally Useless

For the first time ever, Google/Blogger's spam filter actually caught a spam comment. Usually, it lets the spam go right through unmolested and only traps legitimate comments.

We can hope this is the start of a trend.

I've just read Hartshorne's "Where Are The Talking Robots" in March/April ScientificAmericanMind, that discussed the difficulty of creating robots to learn ordinary ;languages. Has anyone tried to use the commercially successful software that proclaims it can teach any human to learn a language the same way babies learn? Isn't a nonverbal robot similar to a baby?

(I don't acess this blog regularly, and so would appreciate a relevant reply to me at .)
