And I don't mean...'Why me having to have a child with Special Circumstances?'. Note the word 'Circumstances'. I refuse to use the word 'Needs'. Hey, some folks have a problem with the word 'Retarded', I have a problem with the phrase 'Special Needs'. But that's another story for another blog.
No, my title of 'Why Me?' refers to this.
Why in the world would any SpamBot actually take the time to post links to Asian Schoolgirl Porn in the comments section of my blog? I mean, listen...I'm an open-minded dude. You like that kind of thing? OK, cool...you do what you gotta do.
And hell, I'd be lying if I said I didn't have a love for Ze Wimmens. In fact, a friend pointed out a few days ago that the ratio of pictures featuring Ze Wimmens is VERY high in the photos that appear in my blog header, which I change frequently.
There's an argument there I'm sure, and I would probably understand either side of the argument. To me, there isn't anything wrong and I don't show anything you wouldn't see on TV, but some others might say 'Dude...you are THIS close to showing some nip in that pic...you sure you want to do that on a site that is read primarily by Mom's?'
I get that point.
Ain't CHANGING anything.
But I do get it. :)
But my point is...why have a SpamBot post a porn link here?
This I do NOT get.
I realize that we are talking about a computer program or something that goes around dropping it's...um...'stuff', wherever it can, but if you are going to take the time to design a program to go forth and commit Spamicide, wouldn't you be smart enough to do it so that it doesn't waste time or resources committing this act on a fairly insignificant website?
I mean...the blog is significant to ME, in the small scheme of things...I get something out of writing it, and there are a few people who like to read it. But there is only a very small following, not that many 'readers', or 'hits', so why not alter your program to avoid sites like mine (those that have low traffic and such), and only target those sites that might yield a few more people who might be into your porn?
Makes no sense.
Anyway, that's my long-winded (SHOCKER) explanation as to why now I have re-instated the Word Verification process for entering comments (known as CAPTCHA), since the porn links have popped up more than once. I hate the WV...it is a pain in the butt. But you gotta do what you gotta do, and this I gotta do.
My grammar blows sometimes, don't it?
You realize it is intentional, yes? If you didn't realize this, please note that I do it often for comedic effect. It might not always be funny to anyone other than me, but that's why I do it.
