Bots Never Sleep
AbraPalabra just bit the big one. That's right, my tag board is history. For those of you who used it regularly, my apologies; it was a fun utility, but I was tired of constantly deleting the spam that cluttered it. Today alone I had to de-slime the board NINE different times -- it just wasn't worth it. There's no keeping up with those pesky little bots. God, they're gross. Ick.
Also today, I've switched the blog to comment moderation. So from now on you'll have to reproduce a code word to get your text published (evidently bots can't read yet) AND I have to tell the system to go ahead and let your comment appear. I hate having such a buffer, actually, but I am assured that it's only a matter of time before the bots start infesting my comment boxes, unless I thwart them in this way.
I'm only thinking of youse!
