All of the comments that come to my blog go directly into trash. Anyone who wants to comment on a particular item will have to do so by using my email address.
My grandson Wes, who set up my website, told me that most of the comments would be “trash” and not worth reading. I thought at first he might be overstating the case, but as I have scrolled through the “comments” I found that they are almost all advertisements of one sort or another. I already have my email set to dump such things directly into trash and the comments that have come to my website have thus far fulfilled Wes’s prophecy.
The website is for me to post things that are of importance to me because I enjoy writing about them. Of course it is always fulfilling (ego entertaining) if someone says nice things about the site as well, but that is not its purpose.
