As I prepare for my next blog, I keep getting informational e-mails that someone has commented on my blog, which excites me, until I find out it’s some totally different subject they’re talking about to some totally different person. And I realize…yep. The Sneaker Spammer has snuck through my door.
I am way over trusting when it comes to things in this world — you tell me the sky is blue, I believe the sky is blue. You tell me you saw an alien spaceship land in your back yard, I believe an alien spaceship landed in your yard. I also believed my spammy guard was smart enough to cut out things other than Chinese or Arabic.
So I have dropped to the moronic level of Spammies everywhere, and will begin moderating the comments. I love free speech and all, but I love privacy, too.
New blog coming soon — feel free to comment on it — and I’ll be sure to let you through!

I know exactly how you feel. I get a lot of spam style comments but I use Akismet which filters out most of the comments. I have also turned off comments on certain pages as well as older posts.
I get a lot of spams. Thankfully, AKISMET holds them for me to peruse…and dump. Peruse meaning, I scroll down to “empty spam,” all the while watching a blur of words speeding by on the way to…trash. Totally annoying when others try to latch on and promote themselves.
They seem to be sneaking in the back back door…older posts…(too bad they probably never even READ the post!)
I’ve noticed this lately, too. Hope I don’t have to go back and moderate everything, but we’ll see.
