Blog spam

I'm sorry to all those multitudes of readers of my blog out there, but I've had to turn on moderation, which means that if you post a comment, I have to approve it before it will show up. I started getting a bunch of junk mail comments, offers for Viagra (no prescription necessary!) and so on, as well as a peculiar offer from a Saudi Arabian girl who wanted to practice her English. But for actual readers of my babble, don't let that discourage you. I like getting comments - please drop me a line or two; I'll approve your post and it will show up. I keep hearing second-hand about people reading my writings, but only very seldom does anyone post a comment directly. I'm tempted to deliberately write something controversial just to see if I stir up any feelings. Please don't let it come to that. Do your part. If you don't want to put your name out on the internet in public, feel free to disguise yourself. If you're someone I actually know, I'll probably catch on. If you ask a question, I'll answer. I check almost every day. Word to the wise: If you mention Viagra in your comment, I will likely reject it without reading the whole thing.

Soundtrack for the writing of this post is the Edith Piaf collection called Legends of the 20th Century. For the full effect, get out your own copy (you have one, don't you?) and listen to it while reading. And when that's done, put on Queens of the Stone Age.


  1. Now that is funny. I wouldn't take you for a Queens of the Stone Age fan. Then again, I could never tell with your sense of humour.

  2. I actually do like QotSA. It's kind of retro-70s rock, and maybe even touches of prog in there. Plus a sense of humor - pretty decent stuff. "Tangled up in Plaid" is a great tune.
