Public Service Announcement

 By Shamus May 31, 2006 4 comments

Apparently a woman named Candy has been anxious to get some information to my readers. She’s so passionate about her message that she’s fighting to overcome near-illiteracy to get it out. Unfortunately, she left her comments on old posts where most of you won’t get to see them. She seems so intent on reaching you that I thought I would help the poor lass out by relaying her message to you myself.

Candy would like you to know that you can get che@p phenterm1ne, r1talin, v a l i u m, and zoIoft online, without needing a do.ct.or.s perscripti0n. This is great news to many of you, I’m sure.

She also provided some links, but I’m sure you can find all that stuff through Google.

(Sigh. Fine! I’ll install Akismet. Jerks.)

4Four comments. Fantastic.

    Told ya. Though apparently Candy does realize after enough futility that it’s a waste of time. After blocking nearly 600 spam, my Akismet installation now has nothing to do. Which is fine by me….

  2. Shamus says:

    It seems to be working well. I might relax the moderation guidelines, which takes any post with two or more links and holds it for moderation. I hate when genuine comments get pulled out this way, and assuming Akismet keeps up the good work I’ll be able to put an end to that.

    I think I had one false positive…. it wasn’t a problem. But I’m sure we have different types of commenters too.

    SpamGourmet is also a good way.
