Lovely spam

Lovely spam

I’ve recently been getting lots of automated spam via the contact form, so I’ve had to disable it for now. It seems to have been delivered in batches of about 16 or 17, once or twice a day: not a massive problem, but a waste of my time and something I can live without, thank you very much.

It annoys me to think that thanks to a few jerks who see nothing wrong in bombarding people with meaningless stuff (the title and text were all random letters and numbers, but each contained a link to somewhere) to the point where everything else gets drowned out, the rest of us have to put up with annoying inconveniences of one sort or another. Spammers, of course, will protest that they have the right to say anything they please, but when their freedom of speech makes meaningful dialogue impossible because nobody can find real posts among the trash, it starts to violate other people’s right to be heard, and at that point a line is crossed.

So yeah, sorry about that. I’ll try again after a couple of weeks or so, and if I still have problems I’ll have to start implementing more robust (and inconvenient) measures.
