May the lowly wretches who command the bots that spam me be bannished into the darkest part of heck and stuff! I’ve just installed the pro version of Akismet, the spam comment blocker people rave about. It was quite easy to do and if it works anywhere near as well as everyone says I will gladly pay five dollars a month for it. Three cheers for paying for web services! I’m all about it. Imagine how much less advertising there could be if all of us who could would just plunk down some dough for the services these hard working developers have created. Imagine how many more and better services there could be built if innovative folks knew they would be supported financially by their user community if they built something good. Thanks Akismet!
