El Cab called me up yesterday to inform me that he found a sinister comment posted here, that appeared as a random line of characters and prompted his computer to want to send something. It smacked of Bad Computer Virus Nastiness. I had disabled the word verification last month because another reader complained my blog was eating their comments. So now, in total Camille-style, I have overcompensated by reinstating word verification AND comment moderation.
Thanks to all the readers who deign to add the gems of their wisdom to this 'umble blog.
