Responding to Comment spam

Like most blogs, I get my share of spam in the Comments section of each post. My spam blocker does a good job of eliminating most of it before I even see it, but some comments make it through the filter and end up in my “pending” folder. I don’t want to let them through for obvious reasons, so I thought I’d respond to the most popular comments I got in the last three days:

Many thanks for making the effort to describe the terminlogy for the learners!

You’re welcome, although there wasn’t a lot of rocket science in my review of the horror novel Creepers to which this comment was attached.

My temporary home

Okay, so somehow my customized blog theme got destroyed and I have no back-ups. I’m not pointing any fingers <cough>my fault</cough> but let’s just say I’m now looking for a new blog theme.  The search will take time, so here is my temporary home.

I use WordPress, and they have some nice themes, but I’d like to develop one that’s a little unique.  Besides, no self-respecting web developer would use a canned web site theme.

The Cold War

I haven’t had a full-blown, phlegm-spewing, throat-scouring cold in over eight months, so I was overdue for an invasion. My immune system is strained, but holding up valiantly against the Virus Horde. Unfortunately the Horde is now entrenched in my sinuses. They force me to use up all the Puffs in the house, and they make the milk in my cereal to taste funny. My special forces (a.k.a., multi-vitamins and green tea) will soon rout the buggers, though.

It’s only a matter of time. Bwa-hahahaha– <cough, sneeze>
