About Comments

In order to prevent disruption of the comments on this site by spammers and taggers, I am disallowing anonymous commentary. N.B. This does not require someone to expose their actual identity. If you wish to comment on this site without disclosing who you are, you can establish a free account by registering with blogger. These accounts do not require anymore information than an email account which can be blocked from view in the "Edit my profile" section of your new blogger account. I apologize for any inconvience.

OK, I got a bunch of spam on this very comment so now there is a verifier requirement. I think it may be difficult for people with certain disabilities to use, so if you wish to comment and have trouble, there is an email address connected to my profile and I will be happy to post comments even if I disagree with them. No profanity, though, please.

Ironic that I've received two pieces of Spam on this one post.

I've had the sam problem. I have resisted using the word verification as I think it hinders some folks from responding and I don't mind maintaining the site and cleaning that stuff off.

When you remove comments, click on the remove permanently and it will delete everything about the comment. It will look like it was never there.

By the way, my children have disabilities. Thanks for doing this blog.

Thanks, curious. Spammers have no hope of heaven. So far no complaints about the verifier, but that may because the people it stops can't tell me about it.

Word verifacation can be a pain but if you make a game of it by changing a few letters, they can spell out some weird stuff.

Yeah, spammers are the cockroaches of the blogging world. Everyone gets them eventually, and you've gotta kill them to stop it.
