..."you can glean the correct responses from our source code" ??
If that is true then your statement probably qualifies as one of the most ill considered and stupid statements in the history of the Internet.
As the dust settles on on our recent round of Bond polls - in which readers voted Ernst Stavro Blofeld, Sean Connery and Casino Royale the vilest Bond villain, the ultimate movie Bond and the best Bond film, respectively - we're offering fans the chance to see if they've really got what it takes to hold the coveted 00 number. …
as they said, doing so is not cricket. it's on your honour as a gentleman to not hack the code and take the test in the spirit in which is was intended.
besides, there's no cash prize, there's not even a leaderboard, so no one's going to know the score you get. if you waste your time cheating and looking at the code, the only person you are cheating is yourself. no one else is going to know or care. but y'know, whatever you need to do to boost your self esteem...
"What on God's Green Earth are you talking about?"
Many people would think that posting a quiz and then saying that the answers all in the web page source code was pretty stupid. Obviously not everyone thinks that. Or even seems to understand it.
Evidently, you're the only one who thinks that. It wouldn't take our savvy readers long to work out they could get the answers from the source code, so we simply flagged the fact up front.
We mere mortals bow to your greater understanding of what constitutes stupidity, since we're clearly in need of enlightenment.
Evidently you are the only one one who never thought about creating a quiz, and a damned good quiz too, WITHOUT the answers in the source code.
Savvy readers would certainly check to see if the answers were there but saying so up front only means that EVERYONE gets to do that and therefore all scores are meaningless.
I thought I knew the Bond series pretty well, but I ended up with 26. Some inspired guesses, I think I actually knew less than 10.
I second guessed myself on a few - I knew Bell made jet packs, but I had it in my mind somewhere that the Bond one was made by Boeing.
Bloody hard, but some interesting trivia in there.
