Funny Google AdWords 

I was looking at my site just now to make sure all the comments I'm moderating are coming through. One of the Google ads caught my eye:

Huge selection of Lisp items.

I had to chuckle. "Huge?" Really?

While extremely tempted at this point, I absolutely refuse to click on my own AdWords. And please don't all rush over here and click on it either. Just smile a winsome smile with me and let's leave it at that.

Comment moderation enabled 

I got a sudden outbreak of blog spam today. Because of this, I have had to enable moderation for all anonymous comments. Deleting all 25 or so of them by hand through the Blogger interface just takes to long. Apologies to the well-behaved of you out there. Somebody pooped in the pool.

Am I the only one that feels that spam, particularly blog and wiki spam, is something akin to terrorism? I have this feeling like I'm being forced to relinquish some of my freedoms. Comment moderation feels like a metal detector in a museum.
