I Hate Doing This
I know they're bullshit because the email references the post on the blog to which the comment was ostensibly written, many of them from several years ago. When I look up the old post the comment doesn't actually appear. So Blogger has some glitch that is letting spam email come through claiming there are comments on my blog.
I know that several of those that comment here have blogs of their own and they all use some type of screening device that weeds out non-humans. Operating on the assumption that the funky emails are generated by some type of bot in the Eastern Bloc or Nigeria, I'm going to start using a screening device on Monday. I hate them, they are often unreadable on the first try, but I'm hoping it filters out the unwanted emails.
Sorry for the inconvenience, but it seems a small price to pay for all the knowledge and entertainment you get here.
** Screw it, let's start today.
