comment Replace polling with clever simulation
The user sends DTMF tones on their phone back to us with the code we show on the screen and we write to our database if the code is correct.

comment Generic/vague error messages to pass to spammy users?
Captchas are a terrible user experience and can be solved easily by farming to a third party like Mechanical Turk or low-wage workers in India.

Jon W: The sparklines shown there don't have the same problem I'm having of super jagged peaks and valleys.

comment Is 10 search results per page the best?
I would put response time #1. Google did a bunch of tests on this and found that users wanted more results, but were very dissatisfied with the slower load time. They tested it by delaying 10-results pages by 400 milliseconds and got the same dissatisfaction as by showing 30-50 results per page.
