Well I was rather shocked this morning to check my email and find that comment spam is finding its way to my little corner of the internet. To be honest I thought that blogs had to be around for a lot longer and be more popular before this kind of thing happened, as you can see I’ve only been blogging for 3 months and 7 days, and I have a readership of approximately 4, all of whom are my friends (hi guys:)). This whole spam thing is rather rude but at least the content of the comments is sometimes rather good:

  • No one can be perfectly free till all are free; no one can be perfectly moral till
    all are moral; no one can be perfectly happy till all are happy.
  • Civilization is the progress toward a society of privacy. The savage’s whole
    existence is public, ruled by the laws of his tribe. Civilization is the process of
    setting man free from men.
  • Science is built up with facts, as a house is with stones. But a collection of facts
    is no more a science than a heap of stones is a house.

I’ve installed a spam blacklister, this should hopefully let me moderate the comments before they come through, but let my reader base comment as normal (all four of you).
Who knows, if I get enthusiastic enough I may but a ‘random spam words of wisdom’ section in the side menu, that’d be like a quote for the day kinda thing.
It is unlikely but still, it’s also an idea.
