Everybody's Doin' It, Doin' It

Well, perhaps not everybody. But inspired by Toby, I'm also disallowing comments on this space until further notice. The reasons are simple:

1. I'm tired of dealing with the spambots.

And that's it, basically. My blogging software is desperately out of date, which means I don't have the sort of autofiltering options more modern systems have, and what with the holidays fast approaching, I won't be able to keep an eye out for doofuses (doofii?) who wish to use the comment areas to post their painfully hilarious pleas to purchase patent leather shoes, life insurance, erectile dysfunction pills, and the like. So screw 'em.

For those of you who do wish to make remarks at me, I'm available on twitter (@jonmhansen) or by email for longer form remarks (no Facebook. That ain't gonna happen).

There is the possibility I may change my mind in a few months. I hope to have the time to upgrade over the winter break. No promises, tho'.
