Comments Section Issues

Sorry guys; had to get rid of allowing anonymous comments for the time being. Got spammed 4 times in ten minutes. Bummer.

Bummer!! I hate spam. I have that problem with Haloscan comments

I'm not fond of anonymous comments for the same reason I'm not fond of anonymmous bloggers. My PJ comment is exactly why. We need to think about what we say and hold ourselves accountable for it. I have never shirked from that.

Esther,
Sorry to hear about your having been spammed.

I agree wholeheartedly with Mark!

Spamming is low!

I'd like to know if anyone ever actually made money off spamming? It seems highly unlikely. In fact, I'd say that spamming is done only to annoy other people.

Dante would have made up a whole nother ring for spammers. I'm certain!

Those two? Oy, seawitch.

Good point, Mark. But my family isn't registered so I like them being able to comment, lol. My mom weighed in on the renters insurance thread. ;)

Thanks AOW.

Right on, Tim.

BW, great question. LOL at your last line.

Rachy, that was WILD!!!!! How sure are they it wasn't for spamming? LOL.

Rachy,

I tried to check out your site but I got an error. Is it working or am I the only one having issues here?

I probably didn't put the link up properly from my blogger account... just try typing in the URL

That seems to happen once in a while.

Have I ever told you you have cute knuckles, Esther?

Unless of course, those aren't your knuckles in the picture you use; in which case, disregard this message unless you can pass it along to whoever owns those knuckles.

Did I just spam you? :-P

LOL Mr. Beamish -- they are indeed my knuckles. You crack me up. In fact, when I met Jonathan, the Noble Savage, during a trip east we arranged to meet on a corner. I approached the corner making sure my two wrist bands, for Israel and breast cancer, were showing and he saw them and was like, "It's you!" ;)

Oy, the spam I deal with could inspire several hilarious Monty Python skits. (ba-dum, ching!) I've got a pretty good anti-spam application, but I still get hammered, so I'm looking at a few other ones. Part of the price we pay for our blog celebrity, I suppose. heh
