Odds and Ends

February 21, 2005 Leave a comment Go to comments

Spam Karma has missed about 6 spam comments so far. It’s caught over 600, so that’s not bad at all. It’s also now blocked 2 of my own pingbacks. Odd.

I now have a little script up in the corner that shows what song I’m listening to/listened to last, via the Audioscrobbler service. Click on it and you go to the page for my listening history. We’ll see if it slows down my site a lot; the service kind of drags at times.

Someone took issue with my most recent letter to the editor in the paper today. It seems Ms. Gardner wants to take the blame off the letter writer for the twisted quotation (which, as I agree, she did not do herself). I would be more sympathetic if the writer had not decided to attack someone for not examining what he’d been taught. By any standard she should have checked the quote, considering it has a biologist at a major university repudiating something that biologists overwhelmingly support as the unifying theme of their science. If she hadn’t done the very thing she attacked the other writer for, it would be more excusable.

Vern Smalley, crazy letter writer extraordinaire, decided to grace my blog with some of his ramblings, along with one at A Chicken Is Not Pillage. I have to say, I think Wulfgar got the best of the three.

    Yay, me. Seriously though, I think he posted the threats over at my place because he thinks I’m gay. Quite the silly git. But then again, he kinda thinks everybody’s gay, ‘cept him. That’s one sad sad man.

    Eh, I dunno about that. It seemed like he was responding to my comment about him being attacked by the “homosexual menace.” Still, he did imply that everyone on one of my comment threads was gay and you were one of the commenters.

    Yay Spam Karma. Mine’s up to about 500, with only one comment getting through that shouldn’t have. :D

    1. I removed Spam Karma from my blog because it was eating every single comment that came through. I’m using the new AuthImage, which works to a point.

    2. Vern Smalley is a caricature. I can’t believe he actually said that gay men are “over-sexed.”

  1. No trackbacks yet.
