These are generic bot programs that randomly post their bullshit ads in your blogs comment section without your consent. We've had some others in Japanese pushing their "sex swap parties" to no avail. Every day I have to delete several of these things from bots that have settled into a regular pattern of trying to push advertising onto this site. So in reaction to this newest technological annoyance I've changed my comment settings to exclude Anonymous commenters. I know that this probably won't affect the vast majority of people who comment here but I just wanted to point it out in the spirit of full disclosure. Bitch on, ya'll.

Maybe having a basically unknown blog has its advantages. I haven't had any of these, however I've been thinking of excluding Anonymous comments but more from the standpoint that I believe people shouldn't be allowed to hide behind the anonymous tag to say loathsome things - or anything else for that matter.

Why do you think I've not been here as frequently JBW. I thought the Japanese sex swap tours were for my benefit.
