A few months ago I was getting spammed into next year by Chinese bots who were leaving bizarre comments over my blog posts. “ITS A GOOD SUGGESTION”, the comments would say. “THANKU LOTS.............” This was frequently followed by a link to an Asian teen porn site. Contrary to popular belief, this is not my bag.
Hence I moderate all of my comments now, this being perhaps the only way of being told that a comment has been left. If you're a human being with a brain and a set of fingers, which are collectively capable of constructing a logical sentence, please feel free to comment. Once I've checked that you fit this bill, I'll upload your text. If you're a bot insistent on making me look at Chinese “schoolgirls”- well. There's a time and a place. And it's not on the blog. I'm sure that if you're a real human being who's reading this with your eyes and brain, you won't arbitrarily link up to manslappingasianteens.com. Computers, however, have no such quarms.
So, human readers. Feel free to comment, and I'll probably allow posting within 24 hours. The following is a scenario I would like to avoid.
