Guardians of the Written Word

That's only a default title, and not necessarily the subject of this post.

Or is it?

There has been a rash of spam comments to my blogger blogs, most notably, LinksAPlenty, which I've dedicated to bookmarks on the craft of writing. What the spambot has failed to register is, I moderate all  comments  I'm not going to let a comment on luggage be posted under, say, characterization, and not on the blog at all, fro that matter. I'm not posting to sell stuff, necessarily. I'm not even selling myself on these posts.

I don't need to sell myself, though, do I? I mean, if you read this, then you've sought me out, whatever your reason.

I refuse to turn off comments. Sometimes, I may get a good and/or amusing comment. This has tuned out to be the only place I have blogs that need moderation of commentary, The one or two I've had on LJ, I've pretty much just deleted, and the phenomenon has not repeated itself. I cannot tell you how frequently I've marked comments to these blogs in general ,and LinksAPlenty in particular, as spam. Has the phenomenon of spam shown an increase in recent years, or have I only  run afoul of spammetry?
