Trying Something New With Comments

After being flooded with spam comments, all of which start off with flattering words like "Great blog you've got here!," I was toying with the idea of turning off the comments completely. This morning I discovered that Blogger has a word verification feature that requires anyone wishing to leave a comment to type a series of displayed characters before doing so. This is supposed to circumvent automated spamming. So, I'll experiment with that first. I'll just have to learn how to cope in the absence of all that "sincere" praise.

A lying tongue hates its victims, and a flattering mouth works ruin (Proverbs 26:28)

We need to get you out in the blogosphere more often :-)

The verification works. I've not had to remove a single spam comment since rolling it out on my blog.

Great blog you've got here!...Ha, just messing with ya. I also enjoy your Pensees interviews (that is you right?)

OK, son of puddleglum, you got me. You should have seen the panicked look on my face when I read your first sentence.

Yes, that's me doing the Pensees interviews. I'm glad you enjoy them. Thanks a lot for for taking the time to let me know.

What do you think your god thinks of you spending all this time a day typing away at your blog when you could be out preaching to the homeless or going door to door with pamplets about his "all-saving" grace? Is your belief all about being saved by grace? Is it like this blog, whereas you have to constantly keep going back to it in order for it to have any real meaning? Does your god, in a sense, shut down your salvation if you go quite sometime without paying attention to your faith, or does he keep hold of that first prayer you uttered to him? If indeed your faith was rock solid and real, does he damn you for losing it?

As a skeptic, a deist, and former-Christian, I want to say that that crimson guy is a jerk and in no way represents us non-theists.
Blog away!

What makes you think I'm a guy? Is it that whole "wives submit to your husbands" bit you learned as a Christian that made you think that in no way could I be a girl? A girl... actually speaking her ming... with no man to back her up?

Wow, you're funny. =)

Why, thank you! ^_^
