    Right now the script does the following:

    I've automated Squidoo account creation, level up to 10, lens creation, and browsing lenses...

    [1] Creates accounts.
    [2] Create Likes
    [3] Create Lens (default - no content yet)
    [4] ChangeLensTitle (Starting to create lens content creation functions)
    [5] Supports proxies
    [6] Supports deathbycaptcha

    Script uses Python - BeautifulSoup and Mechanize.

    Questions:

    [1] What is the best way to share with the BHW community? Would a Free likes thread work for you guys? Should I just release the source to the public?
    [2] What platform should I hit next? Hubpages?
    [3] I noticed all of the tools given away are compile binaries (ew!)... are there more private groups where people share source?
    [4] What are the legal issues I should know about? I know that creating multiple accounts is against their ToS but is it actually *illegal* (North America)?

    Most people share through the downloads section here. Some give away just the binaries, and some give away both binaries and source code. it just depends on what your level of comfort is in giving it away to the masses.

    I would love a copy as I do a lot of work on squidoo and hubpages both! So hubpages would be a great place to go next IMHO. :)

    Cipher, a bit OT, but maybe you can help. Why did you choose python and mechanize, and not zenno, winautomation ubot... is it easy to navigate all the various highly interactive pages that web2.0's throw at you? Any hints are appreciated, as you seem 2 have done a lot.

    Ive been looking for some way to automate this. I run OSX, will this work on my machine? I also have a VM so have access to Win7 if not.

    Id like a copy of this if possible. :)

    i use squidoo a lot as well, so would definitely be interested in this if you release it for free. Im trying to use imacros at the moment and its very buggy
