I Finally Turned Off Registration

After running this blog for a number of years, I have finally caved to the annoyance of all the random subscriber registrations. I really didn’t want to do it. But I have obviously been deluding myself. Somewhere in the back of my mind I must have been thinking that my occasional commentary on the state of the world would make a difference. At least, enough of a difference that people would find my ramblings and wish to comment on them.

But I was wrong. In all the time I’ve been writing on this blog, only one kind soul was brave enough to leave something behind. I know this because in order to comment one must register as a subscriber first. Instead, I have been getting two to five junk subscriber registrations per day for months now. They’re obviously spammers with junk email addresses from Russia or Peru or God knows where. The usernames and addresses are ridiculous junk and simply annoying.

So I’ve disabled it all. It’s now finished. I shall continue to write but it’s not the same any more. The words are out there but there shall be no feedback. Not now, not ever. The spammers have won again. Sad day…
