Oh Well, back to square one.

WHAT am I supposed to do? I turned on Comment Moderation because Chinese spammers had found me and seemed to enjoy whatever it was they thought they were doing but I couldn't really tell because I don't read Chinese and so even if they were offering me 10 different ways to enlarge my penis I still wouldn't have any way to figure it out so why put up with it?

And then I decided "well, I'll turn it off" (Comment Moderation, that is) and found out when I went into the settings stuff here on Blogger that there IS some new stuff back there and I have more than 13,000 comments on this blog - more that 13,000 since December 13, 2007, which is when LouCeeL was born and I think that's amazing. I mean WOW. And I know there are people out there who probably get that many comments in a month but I'm not one of them and really, I don't care to be, because if I got that many too quickly I'd never be able to interact with all those people and comments.

I decided to "turn it off" because I went all day before I realized I actually had to go and MODERATE the darn comments and there they were so I hit "Publish" on all of them and boy do I feel foolish.

So I turned it off.

Grannie's gonna be okay. She's in a regular room, out of ICU, and now it's just a question of managing pain and allowing time and Nature to heal her wounds and restore her mobility and routine.

Thank you ALL, for your kind words and well wishes.

YAY Grannie! And yay, too, for modern medicine.

I'm glad you turned it off again. I always love to read what the other commenters say.

Glad Grannie is doing well :)

And I'm pretty sure they are offering ME 100 ways to enlarge MY penis, too. For the record: I don't have a penis.

For what it's worth...Squarespace does a better job with spam control. I do pay a monthly fee for their hosting service, but I haven't had to turn off my comments or moderate them. Just a thought.

I am glad for the news about Grannie. Very glad.

(knocks on wood) I have never had a problem with comments from China or from trolls. Hope that I can maintain that trend!

GREAT news about Grannie! :)

Casdok said...

I turn mine on and off too :)

PattiKen said...

I love you too, Lou. So glad to hear Grannie is on the mend.

As for the Chinese spammer, somehow I imagine it's easier to delete that one comment than to moderate all the others. Of course, I haven't been hit yet. I may change my tune if that happens.

You know what I love? When they give ME advice on how to make MY penis larger.


I'm so glad Granny will be OK. If it weren't so hot out today, I'd wear her hat just to celebrate. :)

So far, they haven't found me. Knocking on wood...
