Comments disabled

So, I've done various things to try to block the spam that comes flooding into any public journal, but it looks like (perhaps because of that) the goal has shifted to simply destroying the comment feature out of spite. Currently I'm getting several hundred instances a day of purely randomly-generated spam -- no URLs, no links, no advertising, no identifiable product names, just randomly generated text and randomly generated e-mail addresses.

I hate to do it, since I've really enjoyed the discussions here, but I don't have time to clean up the comments multiple times a day, so I'm disabling comments completely.

Hopefully once I get a chance to upgrade to newer software, I'll be able to re-enable them with the use of some other spam suppression plugins. That's become a higher priority, but given how much stuff is going on for me right now, I'm not sure when I'll get to it.

In the meantime, comments are always welcome via e-mail.

Trying a new comment system.
