Thanks to the spammer who has been running around my blog posting his/her BS all night for the last week, I'm restricting commenting to only those who log in for at least a week or so. I'm sorry to those of you without Google log ins, but I am spending an hour at least wading through the notifications of the spam then more time actually moving the comments to spam every day. (If this experiment works, I may stay with this system. Just a fair warning!)
I hope to return to the old system, but allowing anonymous comments is really a massive pain the bum with more problems than not, mostly with spam, but sometimes from the cowards who call me names from the safety of not providing a name. I'll see how it all goes as I know some of the prolific commenters don't sign in and I don't want to make you feel unwelcome, but I'm growing tired of waking up to hundreds of emails every morning from hair care, air conditioning, train, photocopying, and many other companies' ridiculous spam messages. It's all pointless because not a single spam message on this blog will make a penny from being here as they are deleted ASAP, but I have to deal with the carnage every morning. It's like a group of filthy polar bears showed up to your family pool to bathe, sing terrible pop songs from David Hasselhoff's greatest hits package, and fling feces at each other all night, every night, and in the morning, I'm left to clean it up while humming a surprisingly catchy ear worm all day. This extra work leaves me less and less time to write.
firstname.lastname@example.org and offer feedback. We may need to tweak things a bit, but let me get a reprieve from this spam for a few days.
PS I love those new plastic molds from Voyageur for bath bombs! They worked rather well! Aren't these cute bath bombs?
