Minor updates, death to spam

Made some minor updates to the look of the page. A major update will be coming soon though to the functionality of the page.

I'm thinking about putting in some functionality so that you can search for most recent posts, instead of just RSS feeds. I originally had in this functionality but I took it out because it was taxing the server too much. I may try it once again.

RSS is taking the world by storm! There is a lot of spam being submitted via the add_rss.php ...actually..the add_rss_complete.php page, people are using automated scripts and programs to submit multiple spam links.

As a result, the crawler has not added any links for the past few months; and a new image verification will be put in place to help weed out spammers.

yeah... welcome to the world of RSS PORN & Spam pages. We quickly found that there's one thing worse than email spam... spamblogs. I estimate of the 2million or so headlines we have in our database that 75% of them are crap.
