Spam Comments are LAME

And thus I've turned on comment moderation for posts more than a week old.

In other news, my dad is back in hospice (he was there for about a week, begged to go home, but now he's back, and I doubt will be returning home again). I'm not sure what to say about it. It's just sad and it really sucks.

I deleted a bunch of spam this morning. Blah.

I hope the spammer grows like an onion with his/her head in hell!

I'm sorry about your dad, that's tough. xx

Sorry to hear about your father. Sending hugs...

Thanks for that suggestion. I had never looked at the "Comments" page under the "Settings" tab, so I didn't even know that option was available. A spammer hit one old article that I had linked to in a recent comment on a blog. That is an easy fix, since I see comments on contemporary articles.

And sorry to hear about your Dad. There has been a lot of that going around in my extended academic family.

Susan said...

Oh, so sorry about your father. Even though you knew it would happen. . .

Bardiac said...

Sorry about your father. I got caught up in other stuff earlier.

Dr. Crazy said...

Oh, Bardiac, no worries! And thank all of you for the kind words. It's not unexpected, and I'm ok. It does suck though.

Suck is the word for it, Dr. Crazy. You have my sympathies.

I'm so sorry about your father!!! I dread the moment in which this will happen re my parents - can already start to tell what it will be like, namely, sad and bad. I am sending virtual chicken soup with hot peppers and key lime juice in it for your cold.
