Yes, boys and girls, the spammers have won. The maladjusted morons who (for the most part) live in "The Turd World" have forced me to ban "Anonymous" users from commenting on this here blog-o-mine. (By the way, that "Turd World" phrase, I lifted that from the DiploMad, read this for the full explanation. A brilliant post by him as well. Perhaps, "as always" would fit as well.)
Yes. I'm officially tired of reading bogus comments from some asshole, shilling some asshole's website which is selling some other asshole's crappy product over the Internet. But many of those were somewhat humorous grammatically, so I let them linger. For a time. But now they've stepped over the line.
When comments slip by Blogger's (mostly) efficient spam-blocker and get posted where real people can see them and when they are discussing some Turd World dweeb's (lack of) sexual prowess with (of all people) Brittany Spears, that's where I draw the line. I mean it's possible that someone's kids could be reading this stuff!
(And yes, normally I won't even use the word "asshole" without typing it as "a$$hole". But today I make an exception. For dramatic impact if nothing else.)
So for the one or two real people who have commented here using "Anonymous", my apologies. Now you're going to have to figure out how to comment non-anonymously. (Is that even a word?)
For you assholes out there on the Internet who spam people, spam elsewhere. I'm done wi' ye!
God forbid and they persist, thus forcing me to resurrect the "prove you're not a spam-bot" Eye Chart nonsense. Ya know, this stuff:
E-gads those annoy me. Though some of my friends use it and I understand. But I'd rather not use it here. We shall see. We shall see.
For now I'm not re-instituting the Eye Chart, I hates it I does. So does Buck in Portales. Harrumph. Perhaps I'll post something more light and cheerful later. Maybe. Right now? Harrumph, just harrumph.
