I have a lot to learn about blogging. For instance, I just checked to see what WordPress could possibly mean by setting aside some of the comments as “Spam.”
Would you believe it? They’re commercials–lousy commercials! Not only that: they are also attempts to use my blog space for advertising, without paying for it. This is a new form of parasitism.
There was also an oddball in the bunch: a one-line message that said, simply, “I think I’m pregnant.” What’s that going to turn out to be an ad for? I don’t think I want to know.
Oh, I know, it’s a little thing, a trivial annoyance. But we are getting awfully slipshod about our ethics lately, aren’t we? A more casual approach to “Thou shalt not steal” can hardly be imagined.
