First off, I'm suddenly getting a bunch of comment spam. This is very annoying.
It doesn't happen on all posts, only those that have certain spam-related keywords. One such keyword seems to be...hmmmm, how I say the word without triggering the spambots?
Ok, one such word seems to be enis-pay. I know this because I'm suddenly getting a lot of spam comments about enispay enlargementay, and they only appear on those posts that mention my enispay or, oddly enough in this blog, more often, someone else's enispay. I have, as it turns out, a lot of posts like that. A lot of posts. A quick search of my blog indicates that I mention enispays twice as often as I mention software. Highbrow stuff here.
So, I'm wondering how annoying it would be if I turned on that nasty feature where commenters are forced to type in that crazy-font word.
Hmmm? Raise your hand if that seems draconian.
Or should I just get the enlargement?
Secondly, I had an argument with a coworker today about whether Kelly Clarkson or Christina Aguilera is a better singer. My fervent insistence, combined with strategic use of the word "octave" may have won me the argument, but at what price?
What kind of a world is it when two grown men have an instant messenger argument about pop stars? I feel ashamed.
