I use the following anti-spam question.

#!/usr/bin/perl
$str="abababba";
$str=~s/ab/ba/g;
print $str;

But it should be printed on several lines.
Is it possible to send question, containing multiple lines?

    Cool spam question. However, I don't know that pidgin's configuration user interface easily allows for that. Also if you were in an irc environment, I think the way to send more than one line sends one message for each individual line. Which might be considered flooding by some servers.

    However, I would consider a non-gtk patch if it didn't significantly increase the complexity of the codebase and it worked in a protocol neutral way for all protocols.

    <BR>, HTML tag "BR", seems to work - at least with ICQ. It needs confirmation.

    Developers, if this behaviour is intended, add a note about it to the configuration dialog.
