Dubious Milestone: 1,000 spam comments

I would like to thank all the marketers of Cialis, knockoff designer handbags (especially Louis Vuitton), and SEO optimization “services” for their interest in my blog. I’m touched. But since I have better things to do than moderate spam comments (for example, anything else I ever do), I have closed comments.

While I’m strongly in favor of a participatory atmosphere and an open exchange of ideas, this blog has received over 1,000 spam comments, and zero real comments. If you’re a real human who actually wants to talk to me (without me buying anything from you or accepting membership in your malware-enslaved spam-spewing botnet), you’ll find ways to contact me via the About page.
