Argh!

I've just had to clean out 300 spambot comments to my LJ. I'm not getting comment notifications to anything legitimate, so I'm just giving up.

I've had to tighten security on commenting here to control my blood pressure. You'll be able to comment to posts, you'll just have to use a CAPTCHA verification if you're not on my friends list. This is just over the weekend, I hope, to get my username off whatever list is creating all of these bogus fishing journals.

Been busy, been sad, been busy, haven't been here, getting my ducks in a row, etc. etc. Be back around here soon.

"Been busy, been sad, been busy..."

Sounds like my week.

I don't even know how to get rid of the stupid things. I gather you can report them, but I'm dumb that way.

It's so annoying. Good luck!

If only we could get the spambots to clean our houses.

Sorry you've been sad.

Odd, huh - I've had a bunch of spambots friend me, but no bogus comments. I guess I just don't have a high enough comment volume to trip their meter. Sometimes it pays to be unpopular. ;)

300!? Holy crap! I've only had a couple of spammers add me to their flists.

I heartily applaud this action on your part.

I just had to do something similar with my Twitter account, and only registered users can comment on my LJ. Man, what a pain in the ass.

I don't mind a little CAPTCHA action if it will cause you less spam

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
