After erasing the umpteenth spammed comment on this blog, I have been forced to change the settings, so that only registered users may post here.
I know that registration isn't a big deal, but I also know that some people, for whatever reason, prefer not having to go through this step, and I wanted to keep this place as accessible and user-friendly as possible.
If you're new to blogdom, visit me and want to post -- what can I tell you; you have to register. It's pretty painless. You can also e-mail me via my profile.
Spammers = assholes. I'd no more buy a spammed product or service than chew on a piece of gum I found sticking to the bottom of my shoe. And those of you who do buy the assholes' products and services just encourage them to spew more spam. And then what does that make you? Yeah-huh. Well, stop it.
There. I said it and I'm glad.
UPDATE: I have changed my mind about banning non-registered comments -- turns out that the spammers have now hit upon registering fake names, so they are posting anyway, while people I want to post here can't. I have complained to Blogger about this state of affairs...in the meantime, I'll just have to be more vigilant about deleting fake posts. Gaaaaaah!
