In this Watch Me Work Live Stream, I work on removing some 30,000+ spam comments placed by bots using through the comment form in Preachit Joomla extension. I then set up Google's RECAPTCHA on that site to prevent more spam messages.

I also use some crazy regular expressions in Regular Labs ReReplacer to add Google ads right in my articles based on how many /p paragraph closing tags there are as well as placing an author's footer at the end of each of his articles.

Interspersed in the video is some setting up of StreamLabs OBS, some reflections on perfectionism, and some twitch heads drop in to "chat" right at the end of the stream.
