After having this blog be slammed by spam on several occasions: One time – some kind of “cookie-thingey” was attached to Max’s picture (deleted the picture from the post and the spam stopped); another time my headline
produced lots of spam (sex ads and links) and continues to get hits!
It’s astounding how many people are looking to see Christine Lagarde, the director of the International Monetary Fund naturally nude . . .
Consequently, I’m as careful as I can be screening the comments that may sneak through the spam filter. Today I received a comment on my post My Encounter with Free Speech from a Mr McDaid. He isn’t subscribed to the blog, has never commented before and I couldn’t trace who he might be.
Mr McDaid, I’m NOT going to approve your comment. However, what you said was so thought-provoking I’ll go you one better and post it:
“Maybe you were missing the point. If impeaching Obama doesn’t make sense, maybe the point was $100 and impeaching Obama was the rhetoric that gets certain folk all fired up enough to miss the point and hand over the cash. Remember the old saying ‘if you want to understand the crime, follow the money.’”
THAT, Mr McDaid, NEVER occurred to me.
Would that occur to YOU?
