Just need to update a few housekeeping issues. First, the email subscription service that many of you still use was officially discontinued months ago by Google. It has continued to work, however, for quite a few of you. In recent weeks, things have become dodgier. I know because I kept a dummy subscription on an old email address, and it's been hit and miss lately. You will be better off in the long run if you bookmark the site in your browser and visit on your own. Some browsers allow users to set up a "tickler" so that may be an option for some of you.
Second, I have been getting spammed in the comments by a Korean bot promoting gambling sites. I delete them as soon as they pop up in my comment monitoring email, but they may be there for hours before I notice. So if anybody knows a way to block them, please let me know.
Third, comments posted on old (usually more than about six weeks past) posts are showing up in my comment monitoring email with no indication of what post they are coming from. I see what you say, but can't reply unless I'm lucky enough to guess from you comment which post it might be. Again, if anyone knows a solution to this, please let me know.
I know Google Blogger is free, but they could really do better than this with all their resources.
