I realize that is working against my interests - bloggers want readers, even those who they would rather go away - but the end of the other SYLG, the end of SYLG2, and other personal crises have me overprotective of this blog. I am NOT deleting this one, no matter what trolls come my way.
Wordpress has a terrific spam/block program, which kept the worst offenders at bay. I had to read the despicable comments, but they never made it to print. Blogger's spam filter is less impressive, and if you can block people from commenting, I have not yet learned how.
The only other choice is making the blog private, by invitation only. I was seriously considering this option yesterday, but after talking to Metoo and Easily Lost, I decided making SYLG private would do more harm than good. So, the blog's doors will remain open to all.
My point? I simply wanted to keep you guys informed of my thought processes going forward. Of course, this post would have made more sense with some sleep, but since I've been up for 28 straight hours - I am writing this on Saturday at 2pm, my second day this week with no sleep - I am not exactly lucid.
Thanks for listening.
