A Change to my Blog

A note to my readers:

Some assclown with no life took it upon him/herself to anonymously make completely random and semi-obscene comments on every single one of my posts yesterday. I deleted them, because they had nothing whatsoever to do with what was being discussed. I thought it may have been some 'bot let loose on the internet, some scripter's puerile idea of fun, so I changed the settings so that anyone wishing to post would have to do word verification before posting. (You know, when there's a word printed on the screen in a bizarre font, and the user has to retype it before being allowed to comment.) I figured this would prevent a 'bot from doing further damage, but wouldn't affect actual human readers.

Unfortunately, the Anonymous Coward struck again this morning, so I had to change things up again to allow it so that only registered blog users can leave comments here. I didn't want to have to do this, but I also don't want to go through and be continuously deleting comments of nastiness. I'm all about the free exchange of ideas, but this is my blog and I prefer that the freely exchanged ideas have at least something to do with what has come before. Anyone who doesn't like this has my blessing to get their own blog and abuse it as they see fit.

I have no idea who the person is, whether it's some person who randomly happened upon the blog and just doesn't like my writing, or someone who genuinely doesn't like me. Either way, though, it's pretty pathetic that someone has nothing better to do than leave me comments about pee.

Sorry that happened, dear. Some people are jackasses. >:[

Those kind of people really tick me off.
Yet something about their posts is strangely enchanting.

But I'll stops sprinkling my thoughts (sprinkling! Get it?) in your blog and you can change your settings back.
But maybe you can check out my blog and leave a nice pee-related anecdote in my comments. You might win a shiny new quarter. Probably not though.

Some people are as tenacious as a bad bladder infection. I think I will leave the settings as they are for now. Call it a cyber version of cranberry juice.

Nice one!

And on that pleasant note, I bid adieu to you and your dendritic blog.

From www.m-w.com:

Dendritic: adjective resembling or having dendrites : branching like a tree.


I wonder how on earth this is intended to pertain to my blog? Truly, the mind boggles.

Highly sorry that you need to do such things. Some people just don't know when to leave well enough alone.
