We have been inundated by spammers (still) trying to post links to dubious products (or the links themselves are dubious – as in “click here to get spyware”).
I’m pretty sure no one who reads anything here is interested in Ugg boots (or knock-offs), or YSL or what’s-his-elbow-with-the-purses-that-I’m-ready-to-launch-a-nuclear-attack-on. Or their knock-offs.
I’m spotting a trend in the spammer’s work and it’s taking them some time to find an article to sneak a comment through on (I have 40 attempts – they usually double-tap – on one article by Trog).
So comments to articles will now be limited to a 14-day period from the date of the article – and then the item will be closed to comments. Sorry to be so mean – and you can always write to us in person 🙂
If you are making a comment about something on this blog: Thank you for reading, if you are, in fact, doing that. Thank you for your kind comments and congratulations to some of you for your efforts at writing to Trog and Pony in English even, which we understand and appreciate. 🙂
Unfortunately, Trog and Pony are not presently a commercial venture (meaning we’re not taking ads) and recommends only those products and companies that they actually use or have experience with. Fortunately, HPV and warts are NOT one of those things – they cannot recommend your products nor link to your site or companies (or any OTHER product like the “fat-burner” product link that came with a complement). As I strongly suspect you are, in fact, pretexting in your writing, your comments, flattering though there are, will not be allowed either.
We’re sorry to be so mean about this – especially Trog, who is exceptionally vain.
To the commenter (also apparently suffering from HPV – sorry to hear that) that gave us a link to a Website in Iran – you should know that Trog is a veteran of the US military and has this odd, reflexive urge to report contacts from foreign entities, especially the ones that DON’T like the US (like Iran), to the appropriate intelligence authorities as attempted spying, let alone LINK to a Website IN Iran.
And frankly, I take offense as well. We may not be the brightest LED in the array, but we’re not stupid either. Please don’t insult our intelligence. It’s not nice 🙁

We have received validation for our policy to screen ALL postings to this site. Unfortunately.
Some cretin thought it was necessary to “comment” on a posting by Trog (bad choice of people to do that to, by the way – he hates SPAM, trolls, junk mail and wages an on-going battle daily with it, so REALLY, you’re annoying the WRONG GUY) about how said cretin could improve the ranking of this blog with Google, blah-blah-blah.
Dear Cretin: This is being done for fun. Not for Google and not for profit, so we don’t CARE if Google finds us or not (and we suspect they will ANYWAY because they ARE Google, so thanks for nothing).
Dear Scum-Who-Troll-Comment-Pages-And-Post-Irrelevant-Crap: Wanna talk to us? We have e-mail. Pitch to us there (not that we will give you any MORE attention, but we expect it THERE and NOT contaminating content). Do some due-diligence and see “Contact Us” on the main page. And know we STILL don’t care WHAT our Google standing is – let along how you can “help.”
Dear Everyone Else: Sorry to be so mean about hanging on to comments YOU might make that would be welcome. But now you know why 🙁
