Now, i have luddite and antiquarian tendencies. I have an aversion to being sold. I was not an early adopter of technologies, nor do i cheerlead. My essays and photographs are hosted by "blogger", which has its templates, settings, and glitches. I was not particularly familiar with them all. I quickly set up 'blog' sites, and did not pay much attention.

There is a section listed as 'posts and comments':

When i set this up, i did not want to be 'spammed'. People, or computer programmes, would put on advertisements or gobbledygook; so i ticked 'yes' for word verification. Some people are frustrated by that. Their settings allow for anonymous comments, i cannot object to that, after all i am anonymous. They have other categories, which i am not too familiar with.

I also did not want to argue with idjits, or give them an audience. Those who fell in that category, included lennonists, who if i remember right, were most active during parish evictions. Their bullshit was the 'party line', and the editorialists of the Plain Dealer were happy to write and publish that sort of thing. Also, the diocese had no shortage of access to present their propaganda (much of it false). There was maybe three such individuals who wrote to me. At least one was upset, that i would not publish his commentary. A couple of comments i had on for a bit, and then realised they were of that ilkage. One person basically told me i was persecuting the sainted bishop, and i was in danger of losing my soul [if not already]. Of course, these people were anonymous, as were pissed off Republicans. boo hoo

Well last night, i looked over the setting selections, for one journal it was incomplete. So i allow for anonymous comments, but now without word verification [time being], and always with moderation.

Well, within an half hour this comment was in my inbox:

Excellent way of describing, and good post to take information concerning my presentation focus, which i am going to convey in college.

I have not done this with that one, but i would wager if you were to put that sentence in a search engine, it would have appeared in several comment sections. Cheap, shitty trick. They thought they were slick. Why would i advertise their schlock and dreck gratis?

Early this morning, i got this:

Wow that was odd. I just wrote an really long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn't appear. Grrrr... well I'm not writing all that over again.
Regardless, just wanted to say wonderful blog!

Feel free to surf to my web page

For personal gain, there is no shortage of individuals to accost you. Have you analysed television (or other media) commercials and advertisements?  Mercenary mercantilism has neither dignity, nor consideration; but plenty of energy.
