I’m reposting this piece. Since I started this blog over a year ago my spam comments have been growing out of all proportions. I came back from a trip to find over 51,000 stupid comments from spam bots waiting for my mediation. Well guess where they all went – DELETE.

Okay, rant over. Here is one of the posts which received so much unwanted attention I had to take it down. Now I have turned off comments hopefully it can be part of my blog again.
