Spam Comments

Even though I dumped the old content I still get you silly spammers thinking I will publish your comments.  Basically for this blog I have always had the same rule.  If you comment looks to be spam I will make it as such and delete it.  If you are off topic, but don’t appear to be spamming I will simply delete it.  Comments are moderated and as such spammers are wasting their time here.

What’s Next?

I dumped the old blog that was found here.  It was infected by some sort of Malware.  I really did not invest a lot of time in the blog anyway so it was just easier to dump it.

What is next?  Well I don’t know just yet.  I thought about directing this domain to my photography site.  I am also thought of just making it my personal blog.  Without a niche market for this blog it is tough to get people to read it.  Who knows what is next, but I will let you know when I know.
