I read yesterday in a blogger help page that they have cleared up some of the problems with "comment spam" and they believe they have eliminated 90% of it. Therefore, because "word verification" annoys me, I am turning it off to see if this is true about the 90% elimination. If you see it turned back on, that means I got spammed. Maybe you all would like to try turning it off for awhile, if you think it annoys your readers (like me).
On a darker note, ;~) yesterday in a comment on Purgatorio, I felt like a guy blogger implied that I was a "dog" ... so I am going to change my profile picture soon. Maybe I will choose the letter "R" or put a picture of a "rose." (I haven't been called a dog since the fourth grade!) Maybe I misunderstood. PLEASE, go to Purgatorio and see this comment by scrolling way down, past the Messianic Jewish stuff, past the album covers, to "Christmas Bonus - You Supply the Caption" and see the manger scene with the dogs. Then, open the comments and scroll to the last 6 or 7 commets to see what I am referring to. Tell me if I am misunderstanding this. Defend me! I feel so ugly!!
Finally, look for one or two more posts related to TULIP. (Believe it or not, I wasn't done yet, but I didn't have the stomach to continue just now. I will take a week or two break ... or maybe shorter or longer. Thanks for reading!
UPDATE: The guy blogger was not trying to call me a dog on Purgatorio. He didn't even notice my name. He emailed me an apology. That was a close one. ;~)
