This is just a quickie between appointments and projects. We have had to make a small change to our blog format – from now on you’ll have to type a verification word in order to post a comment. If you aren’t familiar with that, it’s just a little thing that Blogger will ask you to do – type several letters into a box, repeating what you see above the box.
Why did we make that change?: SPAM. Not the lovely Hormel meat product in the can, the odd stuff that comes unbidden when you use the Internet. We were getting messages asking us to try Viagra, go to websites that showed girlie (and God knows what else) connections, and to learn how to make money on the Web or at home stuffing envelopes or stuffing sausages or stuffing turkeys, I don't know because I got rid of them as quickly as I could.
We’ve always used Comment Moderation, which means that when you (or some freak hacker) left a comment, it was up to us to decide whether to post it. Other than the SPAM crud, we’ve only rejected one other comment. But if we didn't have that, you’d have been able to try Viagra or stuffing turkeys or watching girlie stuff. If you want to do that it’s your business, but we won’t be passing it on for your choice.
Hope you don’t mind! By the way, it was our good Canadian friend Rick Doyle who showed us the way to make this change. Rick is the consummate non-geek geek who has helped a lot of us RV bloggers make improvements or get around hitches in our blogging. And we owe Rick about three dozen cowboy cookies for all his help. You can thank Rick for our ability to continue telling you about … Our Life on Wheels!
