Yuck – spam

Readers, there’s a relentless new spamming entity out there, and now my blog posts are being showered with hideously ungrammatical comments. I was just checking around, and for some reason, even posts from years ago have attracted these annoying pests. One post from earlier this year has 65 comments, all leading to sites about labrador retrievers etc.

I have tried to change the settings so you have to enter a word before you can post a reply. We’ll see if that works. I’m wrestling with the forces of darkness, as I sit here drinking tea on my kitchen sofa.
