What Really Happened

Mr. Husband was SO circumspect in the comments, saying the ISSUE with COMMENTS has now been resolved. Want to know what REALLY happened?

SOME DUNDERHEADED TECHNO-NOOB (we won't say who...let's just say her name would rhyme with Moshilyn if the H in Moshilyn was silent) was going through the constant stream of PORN and PRESCRIPTION DRUG and GAMBLING SITE comments that the spam spiders TRY to leave that MT Blacklist had stops and puts in a list for me to BAN, and I was wading through that list, banning IPs and URLs with reckless and cheerful abandon: BAN! BAN!!!! BAN!!!! BANNNN!!!!
.com?? BAN!!!!!!

Um wait a sec---did you catch that? Yeah. This anonymous moron BANNED anyone with a .com in their e-mail addy or website from commenting. But hey, the .net and the .tv folk were still welcome...HEH. Scott basically unbanned the .commers, and all is well in comment land.

I have to run leap on a plane and head to Memphis. More later!

I think she breaks her website on purpose. Kind of like a school girl dropping her books in front of a cute guy.

It gives me the opportunity to flex my virtual thews for her.

I thought you had just gotten the dead rat.

Eeeee! My very own signed, inscribed, and otherwise personally autographed copy of "gods" is here! Eeeee! (ahem) *clears throat and returns to earlier dignified solemnity* Eeeee! :-)

Pardon my Adult ADHD, but I was so excited to see a commercial for The Book while watching Oprah today!

Thanks for the definition of thews, although I actually knew that. Thing is, I could've sworn I typed something about having spewed my coffee on my monitor upon reading 'virtual thews', so the comment was intended to be more of an appreciation of the funniness. Oh well.
