Spam Removal

It seems like all I ever do here is remove spam that seems to pop up in comments every week or so... usually with links to porn or viagra. Mostly porn.

I would like to post, but just don't feel like it given the time and energy available.

Plus, I've probably lost all my readers by now - heh - or most of them. If one actually cares about such things, the number one comandment is to post something every day, or at least on a regular, semi-weekly basis.

Politics is, as always, depressing. Obama is continuing all of the worst Bush policies - well, almost all - and otherwise is useless at advocating for anything I care about. He's a center-right president. Which makes it even more pathetic that the right-wing decries him on a daily basis as a far-left liberal. Which just proves that there is not a single syllable from the mouth of any national GOP figure worth listening to. And the Dems are just stupid. Blech.

You haven't lost *all* your readers.

Yeah - I appreciate that - thinking of you was what made me switch that to "most"... though I'm sure others poke in from time to time. I, of course, read you - though I don't think you have comments open there right now, or at least, it told me I couldn't last time I tried.

Freakin' spam! I hate that crap. I'm still here too. :)

I don't have comments open. For every sensible, intelligent commenter, I have ten learning-disabled jackasses who can't be bothered to even read what I write before they start telling me I'm wrong.

If what I write inspires you to comment, email me or post it on your own blog. If you do the latter, I'll most probably link to you.

I'm still reading, too! I definitely know the feeling of wanting to post more, but not having the time to do so.

Maybe after I'm done with the bar I'll get around to posting!

Larry - ok, I will do that. Though inertia for some reason makes it harder to post a response here than to comment there. It must be some special form of physics. On the other hand, it will give me an excuse to post here - not that I need one.

Chickpea - you have a great reason not to post anything - studying for the bar exam is a good reason to get out of, well, everything. And just imagine the relief of being DONE! I remember when you first mentioned going to law school, and now you are headed toward the bar! Kudos!

Oh, and Larry, it just shows you have a lot of readers - for good or ill. That brings more jackasses. Me, I just get one or two Korean porn spam comments every week. I should probably consider myself lucky I don't read Korean - or whatever language it is. Though I wonder what compels Korean porn, of all things, to come here. I don't get any american porn spam, for instance.

I "came out" related to my erectile dysfunction in 2007 and wrote about it later (the title of the posting was my "mistake") in 2009.

It became amazing - I got perhaps 50 Viagra and similar things as well as spammed "advice" and similar.

Requiring - my approval for comments has helped me survive, with my "normal" readership of a few.

Keep Pluggin away - but dont' feel like you've got to write more than you feel like writing please

I found a link to you from BadTux. I'm in substantial agreement with you and will be coming back. Keep blogging, friend!

DBB said...

Vilsef - thanks - I likely will - one can't keep not-venting forever...
