    I was using Defensio from past year. It never saved me from spam. It only sends me a mail sometimes when I've posted some links genuinely. More wordering is that it sends me a spam alert to me when I post my own blog posts.

      I'm left handed and this is actually kind of useful. Do you have a problem with left handed people?

        dont get me wrong, i have nothing against left handers, why should I?
        im quoting the title above, when i wrote "Internet For Left-Handers", it wasn't meant to be like, Internet is not for left handers.

        the plugin changes the cursor from right to left...nothing more. i dont see how useful it is. maybe because im right handed, that's why i didn't "feel" it.

        sorry again if i've offended you and left handers. :(

    For the left handed cursors, couldn't you install a separate cursor in your OS to get the same effect? Plus, it would be system-wide, not just in one browser.

      not sure about it, but should be doable. it should be a matter of finding the image in the system files and substituting it with the left-handed one. Try asking it on MakeUseOf Answers,
