Even though I haven't been able to post in awhile, I've been working on the blog almost constantly.
You may have noticed that the comments are moderated, i.e., comments are approved by me before they are posted to the blog. I promise to publish all actual feedback for this blog or posts, the good and the bad, but not spam. I started doing this a few years back when some spammers started posting nothing but ads and "strange things" in the comments section.
So the past few weeks there has been this onslaught of spammers trying to post all sorts of crazy things. It's unfortunate that I have to spend time I could be blogging "cleaning out the comments" but so it goes.
If you have any tips for decreasing spam I'm listening!
