All right. I've got to turn on the dreaded word verification because I'm sick of getting notified of comments on old posts that turn out to be spam.
I'm a kid at Christmas when my email program animates; the prospect of a comment like opening a package. I'm sick of being distracted from other work I'm doing by spam comments.
I only hope that this setting retroactively protects my older posts, because that's where the spammers hit. I suppose there's some comic relief in finding ads for penile enhancers among my comments, but I get to choose when to activate my sense of humor.
Spammers, approach me directly. Maybe if you pay me I might consider it.
My apologies to those who hate word verification. The devil made me do it.
