I'm getting a lot of spam on the blog, I suspect my little "friends" in Europe are largely responsible since it started the same time they discovered my blog. I had 252 pieces of spam in the filter today. If you write anonymously, there's a chance of your comment being picked up in the filter. I try to check everything before I delete it, but you can see how it would be easy to miss a "real" comment in that much spam. So if you post something and it doesn't appear, that is probably what happened
Incidentally, if you get an incredibly stupid comment that consists primarily of grade school vulgarities, it's probably my troll. She and her sidekick seem to have a lot of time on their hands, because now the woman is finding comments she doesn't like and attacking those people. I thought the European welfare states provided free psychiatric care to those in dire need of it , but it's obvious these individuals have not availed themselves of it. I'm not being facetious either, these are some seriously mentally ill people.
Writing about my troll reminded me of this movie. I wanted to warn folks to give it a miss. There's some nice scenery in it, but that's all it offers. I thought it was a movie about hiking, but in reality it's about a young woman who is a prostitute, a drug addict, and seems to be bi-polar. There are some scenes about her hiking through the wilderness but there are a lot more scenes interspersed with the hike that illustrate her extremely trashy life experiences. It was a real disappointment, and I wasted my money on it.
