Anyone who has solved computer vision has far better ways to make money than by spamming.

Heh. Aside from the fact that you're discriminating against tiles players, that could work.

Well, dragon does begin with D - it's not something obscure like "which of these is a snake", and you have to figure out that it's a J because a J looks like a snake (despite S also looking like a snake AND being the first letter of snake)...

The only roguelike I play in ascii is Sil, in which case the answer is C.

If I were a NetHack player I'd probably be most afraid of an 'a'...as it is, in Angband my most-fearful enemy is probably a 'Z'.

I struggled with this for a little while too ... then I realised that one is Morgoth.
