Grit Eatin', Scum Suckers...

Well folks, I had to do something tonight I hated to do but see no recourse to it. I had to put our comments on "moderate" mode do to the appearance of a grit eatin', scum suckin', pencil-neck spammer. They're a dime a dozen and I'm lookin' for the guy supplying the dimes.

We pretty much have an open door policy here for people who seriously want a nice forum to post their work. I won't see it degraded by the likes of that. So, for at least the time being, I have comments set to moderation until we kill off the roaches that are trying to infest us. I will do my best to get legitimate comments posted as soon as.

Sorry for the inconvenience but it's all I know to do to keep us safe from the scumbags of the world.

I am so sorry you having spammers! Just not nice! No problem about the comment moderation....I don't think anyone will care under the circumstances!

You know, I write for fun but I do it professionally as well. I also do a good bit of internet marketing.

I have no problem with a commenter leaving a legit comment to include their signature at the end of it. I do that all the time on blogs and forums both. But I leave the site with value when I leave. I contribute to the conversation.

But it's not well received and actually just plain old-fashioned rude when someone hits your site with something that adds no value to the conversation taking place. I do my best to protect this site from the yaps and yahoos out there promoting who-knows-what.

Thanks for your comment. Come back every chance you get.

A shame, really. Good luck, Mike!

Ah well. Aggravating, but we can outlast 'em. Thank you for taking care of it, Mike.
