Oops, deleted a few that I replied to. Now I won't know what the question was, or who asked. :conf: :peekaboo: :D

Wow, that's awful. Inconsiderate to say the least. I find it hard to believe that spamming like that does anybody any good.

Is there any way to allow access to specific email addresses so that people you know can respond? Or ban emails by domain or something. Most of it probably comes from Russia.

I saved two of the funnier ones, am considering my options. One is a guy who seems to be accusing me of posting something to his blog or perhaps trying to sell him something on my Facebook page. :conf: The other one doesn't agree with the text of a post that includes nothing but photos. He doesn't have time to fight with me, but assumes I not only have time but a willingness to learn from the stuff he wants to send me to review. :guffaw: I could have fun with that. :peekaboo:

My favorite of the ones I didn't keep was from a Willie whose first and only one insisted that it was his sixth. I had planned to keep an eye on previous comments of his as I deleted, just to see how big a fibber he was, when all of a sudden I discovered that I had somehow alphabetized the list, and deleted numbers-A-Echatty! I only noticed because next came my comments, all together. So I worked on the list from the back, then scanned the deleted stuff for stuff to restore (I found two). By that time, I realized that instead of a big hairy chore, it had become a learning experience, and an interesting one. :lol:

Much of it probably does come from Russia, much from China. I think most of the Chinese are trying out their English, to fascinating effect. :D

Grrrr I'm still getting spam even though I closed comments after 14 days! Since I don't want to close comments that fast anyway, I will reopen, figure out something else. At least I'm not getting email notifications any more.

Mostly photos, I went with RJ's name, The Golden Sidewalk of the Equinox! :yes:

That's a beautiful sequence. And thank you for the nice comments. :) It seems like there's space for another picture at the bottom-- is there one that isn't showing up?

And my followers on Tumblr are up to 197. I slowly encroach on 200. :D

Thanks! And you're welcome! I'm going to try to edit that out. Whew! It took a couple of tries, but I clicked on the bottom and started backspacing till I got rid of a bunch of Enters I don't think I put in. :no: :D

^^ That's great. And you've gotten a couple of commentators lately, too.

I think they accumulate and get pushed to the bottom as you make edits to the page. Similar things have happened to me when I've used GUI programming utilities.
Excellent! :thumbsup:
Thank you. :D

I cut off comments after 14 days after I deleted nearly 2000 a while back, yet the Veterans page keeps getting comments. I've been deleting a dozen or so a day, just deleted 113. I kept my favorite one, though, from some English learner who goes by (no, really) F*cks hard.
I’m taking a look forward on your subsequent publish, I’ll try to get the cling of it!

Wow. :veryhappy: The only thing grammatically correct about that is the name. :D

I got a new follower today, so I checked my blog expecting to have hit 200, only to find that I have 197. I guess I lost a couple, or else some people quit Tumblr. :mellow:
