    I probably won't have any use for this plugin, but I think you have created it for all the right reasons. Congratulations and I'll be sure to spread the word.

    The Great Firewall argument is interesting. But by using textimage, you do two things. First, you prevent China's automatic filtering from blocking your site. But second, you prevent Chinese users (or anyone else) from finding your site anyway, because they can't find it with a search engine.

    A bit of a Pyrrhic victory, wouldn't you say?

    Thanks, jamesisin.

    You are right, adamrbrown, and I the fact that you are thinking critically about this issue. TextImage is just one tool, and has many weaknesses as you point out. It can't defeat the Great Firewall by itself. Still I hope it's not altogether useless. And as it says in this site's footer, CODE IS POETRY. If nothing else, TextImage is my code poem for free expression.
