Comments are back!
I don't want to discourage people from critiquing my work, so I've decided to add comments back onto this blog. You must be registered though to post anything. I'm hoping this will keep the "gmail invites" away but allow those of you who want to comment to do so.
UPDATE: Well, this time the comments were back up and running for just above an hour when the script-kiddie came back. I apologize to anybody who likes making actual thought provoking comments since you no longer can.
The internet is a wonderful thing. There is a wealth of information and small people like me are allowed to voice their opinions. Freedom of speech is also a wonderful thing that is often misused. There is a large difference between freedom of speech and spam. Whoever this individual is he/she is incapable of seeing this difference. Many things are pushed under the guise of free speech when in fact, it's just plain spam. Until I can be assured that you will not have to suffer this persons pointless spamming I have to leave comments off. I don't want this blog polluted with "opinions" that are just plain offensive and pointless.
I think it's also interesting that this person, who pushes his spam under "free speech" also posts everything anonymously. I changed the posting settings to only allow those people who are registered to post comments. This was, of course, not effective. The posts he made to slashdot.org were also posted anonymously. I think it's interesting that someone who feels his posts are covered under "free speech" has to post them anonymously, probably for free of retribution. I post my opinions not hiding who I am. he/she must post his/her comments under a shroud of deception because he/she knows it's not free speech, it's just plain, pathetic, weak, spam.
If you have any comments, and wish them to be heard, please email me. I will post them on the blog. Thank you.
