I want to apologize for making my favorite citizens jump through so many hoops to post a comment. To say something on the blog, not only do you have to type a special secret word but I have to go in and press "publish" for it to show up. Why do I make you do all that you might say? Well...I don't want to...but whenever I allow free posting I get:

- Japanese spam that says something vaguely sexual each and every day
- Ads for sketchy payday loans with links to sketchy payday loan providers
- Numerous other brands of awfulness

So, I want to apologize for the inconvenience, explain it to you a little and promise that as soon as all spammers take a long walk off a short pier, free comments for all!

I get japanese spam too. If you figure it out, please share. It's rather annoying.

I have the secret to stopping the spam comments! All you have to do is send $1000 via Western Union to my cousin in Nigeria.

I wish I knew how to stop it - I'd definitely share. Seems like the only thing that works is word entry and comment moderation. I tried sending $1000 of Streets of Stamford's money but that didn't work either - sheesh!
