Today someone anonymously left a comment on an old post, "T-Minus 2 Days", with a link to their porn blog. I get an email notification every time someone leaves a comment, so thankfully I was able to delete it rather promptly. However, this is the second time I've had strange comments left, so I've made a few changes to my comment settings. From now on, before a comment goes "live", I will get an email to approve it. This will prevent anymore undesirable comments from slipping through. Furthermore, to prevent comment spam, I've added the word verification feature. When you leave a comment, you will be asked to type in the displayed word. This prevents spammers from electronically posting comments en masse. I appreciate your patience with these new measures as I hope it will keep the blog clean and friendly.
But this leads me to my second point. I know I have quite a few readers out there but not too many leave comments. You probably don't realize this, but whenever you post a note about something I write, it makes my day! I get so excited to hear your feedback. It helps me feel close to you knowing that you share in our daily triumphs and trials. It makes me feel like the blog is more of a dialogue than a monologue. So please reply from time-to-time if for no other reason than that it keeps me writing.
