I don't know how many of you have noticed, but some bot or bots unknown keep posting the occaisional comment in my blog trying to get me and anyone looking to buy unnecessary things. It gives me a rather hard dilemma to solve.

Basically, the bots can achieve this because I've enabled anonymous comment posting. So, I could easily solve the problem by disabling said option. However, I have anonymous comment posting enabled for the simple reason that I know two people out of thirty who actually have blogger accounts they can use to post. While disabling anonymous comments would filter out annoying ads (which I continually delete), it would filter out everyone except Jo and one other person.

My current action plan is to leave things as is, and only take dire action if things escalate.

In the meantime, I curse the festering blot on humanity called internet advertising.

I would sign up just to leave comments, bro. That bot annoys me too, and frankly, I don't see how the situation could really get *better* by itself. But we'll see.
