Not so long ago, on the plains of Munuviana, there lived thousands of creatures known as "comments." Some cute, some ugly, some serious, some funny, some short, some longwinded and pointless, comments were much desired by the folks of Munuviana, known to some as bloggers. While many bloggers may claim otherwise, their dependence upon the little creatures is well known.

Along came packs of vile beings called "fucking spammers," who infected the comments of the peaceful plains. Comments started to die off, upsetting the helpless bloggers. Efforts were taken to hold the effesses at bay, but alas, they have overun the Munuvian comments. Some fear that the comments may have gone the way of the Munuvian Trackbackalo... exctinct.

For those effesses reading this, I raise a glass to you and offer a toast; "May you enjoy the same fate as our trackbacks, only by claw hammer and needlenose pliers."

Wow! You must be Jebus. You spoke and the comments started working again. I bow to you. I am now a believer.

Yeah, but can he turn water into wine?

You may regret getting your comments back. :-)

Gentle giants, they were...

A real pity.

Since switching to Word Press and installing SPam Karma 2 and a CAPTCHA I haven't had a single spam get through my defenses.

Considering I used to get over 500/day no matter what I did I am quite pleased.

Since I e-mailed my comment... I won't repeat it here... does this still count as a comment??

your docious is showing.

Yes, comment spam is bad, and the lack of commenting is annoying. I'm just not sure I'd want to deal with the spam.

Oh give me a home where trackbackalos roam, and beer ant the canolope play. Where seldom is heard a discouraging word and the skies are not cloudy all day.

There RSM, take that!

I am so glad I moved to WordPress, my friend -- all the spam gets filtered (well, almost all, but the 1% that gets through is always presentable, and ready to be banished nonetheless).
