A well regulated Blog, being necessary to the security of a free State, The Admin shall monitor the Spam Locker regularly and often.

52 of the damned things this morning, all in some alien script so they’re not even entertaining. And even that wouldn’t have been so bad except lately almost 50% of the blasted offerings make it past the spam locker and need to be wormed out of one old post it keeps hitting.

I hate spambots. After I have betrayed the revolution and set myself up as President for life, they’re all going up against a virtual wall.

    It has to be asked: What caliber for spambot?

    Two years after his unexpected death, I’m still getting e-crap claiming to be from a departed friend. Pisses me off a bit.

    Oh come on now! Surely you understand that NSA and DHS and FBI must have SOMETHING to do when they get bored. Or do you REALLY think they are above sending spam to Mere Citizens???

    In Heinlein’s book “Podkayne of Mars” he posits the planet Venus with complete freedom. The place is awash in obnoxious ads. Oh, well!

    Cannot one disable comments on vintage posts?

To the stake with the heretic!
