Some days . . .

If the thought that the Grand Duchess and I are down to our last 10 days or so of summer vacation before the fall term starts weren't sobering enough, I have had to turn on comment moderation again because some stooge in Japan continues to leave comments with links to a distasteful website. This has caused me no end of irritation in the last year or so, but I suspect that e-mailing a polite request to the responsible party or parties would not stop the problem. Hence the renewed comment moderation. I apologize for the inconvenience and extra steps required to leave your comments and suggestions but hope that many of you will continue to so. It looks like the comment moderation will remain on for the foreseeable future though. Grrrrrrr. . .

I WILL CONTINUE TO LEAVE COMMENTS!

But I promise not to give you links to distasteful websites...

...mostly promise.

I am unpredictable.

Hi Stokes - I see that Blogger have finally introduced a spam comment filter so maybe it will get better. Grrrrrr indeed!

Only ten days left? YIKES! "Summer is ending. Summer is ending. The sky is falling too."

Enjoy the ten, sir.

I have had EXACTLY the same problem. I have had to do the same with comment moderation. It is irritating indeed!

Had something similar a couple of months back, after 3 attacks it stopped. Given the location of the comments I think it was trawling for key words across all blogs and then adding comments where there was no comment moderation.

Oh come on now Stokes,

Admit it! Part of you, waaaay down deep inside, is looking forward to seeing the bright shining faces of all those eager young scholars that are lucky enough to have you for a Professor. Come on now...keep looking...it's got to be in there somewhere.

There's always someone got to spoil things. Rest assured, those of us who follow this blog won't be put off by moderation.

Summer vacation? I've not even had mine yet! Somehow I think I must have missed summer.

I was trawling through my older posts a couple of weeks ago and noticed that one post had received over 100 comments. Sure enough, about 99 of them were from a variety of Japanese spammers. It took half an hour to delete them all!

Hope you enjoy the last days of your vacation, Stokes. it looks as if you've had a lot of fun over the past few weeks.

Best wishes

Giles
