Dear spammers…

Please. Just stop.

We moderate every comment. All you’re doing is making me delete more of your comments BEFORE they ever see the light of day. Search bots won’t find them. They won’t slip through the cracks and the only thing you’re really causing is actual legitimate comments to be delayed while we weed through your crap.
