Comment moderation has been enabled. :(

(Above the fold update - 09 Mar 2010 - I'm going to take a chance and disable moderation for awhile. We'll just have to see how that works out. Maybe I'll have to turn it back on, for the reasons noted below, maybe not.)

I truly welcome comments, and would like more of them, but if you choose to leave one, you will now find this little note on the comment form:

Comment moderation has been enabled.
All comments must be approved by the blog author.


So, I'll get an email and it will appear when I Ok it (which I'll almost certainly do as soon as I see it).

WHY?

Blogger.com's comments form allows anonymous comments, and a couple of those have been in the form of:

Some kind of silly and inconsequential message.................

in which each separate dot was actually a link to an Asian video porn site.

As I only have a dial-up connection, it's just not practical for me to access those videos and check them out for you, to see if they might be something you would like.

Sorry about that, but I gotta maintain some standards. This is just the price of my readership expanding from the single digits to the low double digits. :-)

Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now. Keep it up!
And according to this article, I totally agree with your opinion, but only this time! :)

That comment above is not of the type that caused me to enable moderation.

It's more in line with what neo-neocon occasionally posts about as Spambot of the day.

Having been in a major slump for a while, the flattering lines belie any implication that my blog has actually been read.

So, WHY?

I've looked and looked, and cannot find anything malicious hidden within it.

In the words of Al Swearingen, "It escapes me. I cannot figure his f**king angle!"
(Of course, his next line was "Go ahead and f**king fight him!", which may not apply here. :-)
