Sadly, just spambots…

First of all, yes, this “week’s” post is a few days late (from Friday to Monday – sorry).

If you read the previous week’s post, thanks, but it turns out to be a wasted post. All of the “readers” that signed up for accounts were just spambots. Why do they want to do this?

I tried a couple of different plug-ins to try to subvert their malicious actions, but to no avail (some were slightly better than others, but non was what I’d call a success). So, I’m back to a “closed” subscriber base. That is, if you want to subscribe so that you can comment on posts, you’ll need to send me an email via the Contact page, which is protected by Google’s reCaptcha v3. Hopefully this will solve the problem.

I’d be happy to have human readers, and I’d be ecstatic to have some comments from human readers (as long as you follow the rules (see the “Administrivia” section of the “Civilization?” page). So get on the Contact page, send me a message with a little bit about yourself, and if you seem legit I’ll create an account for you.

Finally, I hope to be back on schedule this week with a post on Friday. If there is anyone out there, check back then.
