The New Guard

Just letting you know that I've had to add a sentry to this, my home of Trad Irrelevantia. The SPAM volume has become unbearable. Never have I wanted to add the word verification step to my blog but the junk/spam volume is laughably out of control. Seems that I was an avoided target for the first few years and now I'm destination number one for 'em.

Onward. Verifyin'. ADG II

Yep...My Blog is being bombarded with ads for ambien and other drugs...your old Pharma buds at work perhaps.

Irrelevantia is my new favorite word. Sorry about the spam but your toy soldiers will take good care of you.

I don't understand the juvenile mind of the spammer but if verification keeps you, I'm all for it. No problem.

OMG. even with word verification, i will get some(one) who posts a comment in ten different posts, usually promoting some chinese photoshopping service.

Max, you have my sympathies. Even at my personal email snail level, I'm dying from the number of rosewood humidor offers that accompany the 200 ct. Cuban cigar order at the ready if only I'd click; and OMG the countless medications that "you need" if only I'd click; and the printer ink sooooo many people think I'd rather get from them than put on my walk-in tab at Staples.

So: do your verification sentries actually STOP the spammers? or do they just slow them down a step or two? Well, as Gail says, whatever it takes to keep you, we're all in.

Why don't the hot city girls, or the hot suburban girls, or the hot goth girls want me? After all, the hot country girls can't wait to ravish me...at least, according to half my emails.

ADG, as to your kilim dilemma, it seems to me you left the best hand on the table. That little bit of green on the top middle is the icing on the cake. But if your eye points to the others, I would probably give it to the cream puff on the bottom row. Or, as a collector that you are, hell, just get em both. That way you want be disappointed. Cheers!
