I’m thisclose to closing down comments and going back to the old send-Nance-an-e-mail system of feedback. Today I spent 20 minutes killing comment spam for boner pills. My blacklisting system can kill 80 at a time, and I must have reloaded at least six or seven pages’ worth, so that’s, what? Fifty million? Yes.
But speaking of which, I got an interesting call today: I was the high bidder, by default, on a geegaw from the Rockin’ Docs silent auction. There was a disputed high bid, the next two people down on the list didn’t leave phone numbers, and so there I was, little old me, high bidder (at $37) for a clock with a little blue pill that goes around on the second hand. A border around the edge asks, “Is it time to talk about (the pill whose name I dare not speak, for triggering another wave of comment spam)?” Plus there’s a necktie, AND two pens, all emblazoned with Big Pharma’s big hit.
I know just who I’m giving it to. That is, if I can stand to give it up.
