So unfortunate

In the interest of anonymity, I allowed people the benefit of contributing comments anonymously to my blog. I have to take this option off now because as I'm sure some of you have noticed, I've received some nasty and crude comments that are disguised advertisements for websites on my blog. I am so disappointed to say the least- that people go to such lengths to even get a pay check, let alone go to work day after day (because make no mistake, these are not machines, actual people have to go in and paste these ads into the comments box).

For now I will still allow "name only" to appear because I believe every genuine comment has the right to be heard. However, if this does not stop the pornographic and annoying ads- I will have no choice but to resort to "blogger id" only- so sad.

I hope you haven't had to read the comments before I've had a chance to delete them, I've tried to be quick about it, but if you have encountered them, I apologize.

I know, I have been bombarded lately w/ bad comments. Right now, I have the comments moderated after 10 days. Makes it a little easier, then I just have to watch current posts. Getting sick of rejecting comments though & have noticed missing some valid ones. So frustrating!
