Open Sesame

I told myself that I'd never futz around with the comments section on this blog. I told myself, let joy be unconfined, let everyone comment as they damn well please.

Well, I just checked some older posts and the spam was thicker than goddam kudzu, worse than Himalayan blackberry in a Gresham vacant lot in June.

So, much as I hate to do this, I'm adding one of those irritating "random word generator" apps to the comments section. I hope the faithful won't find it too much of a pain and if you do I will revert to the old system. But I hate to go re-read my old prose and find that all the comments relate to Viagra.

We had to do the same thing.The only problem is that we have a troll that is almost human and can log in.
The faithful will remain.

No worries chief...if hadn't noticed over at Dusty old book, I've totally deleted all comments, and ability to comment...apparently, there was some adverts that I didn't feel were pertinent to my moral character, nor to the product lines some others were selling.

btw, operational word for me "ovenis"
I can only wonder what that would mean if it were a real word.

It means you're a Valentino-sort :)

Now mine's morbidly funny: "whedry".

That could be construed as the ebonic version of,

"The oil's not here yet..."
