"Great writing! I want you to follow up to this topic!?!"

I've had to delete this message three times off of my last entry. (From two different posters, rozehaft and something along the lines of qurohive. I remember it being nonsense and google failed me except for their profile page and some entry in Russian with a similar message. Their profiles look exactly the same, surprise, surprise.) I feel like I should up the privacy setting on it to make whoever this is stop. Stupid spammers. I'm posting this so there will be a new entry at the top of the journal page and maybe they will go away now. (I mean, I doubt it, but it never hurts to try.)

Story update, for those of you waiting breathlessly. Um... 16k with no end in sight? (Carmen's the lucky beta-reader and is no doubt mocking you for her ability to access what I've currently got. Except that puts her in even more of a cliffhangerness than you, so you've got the better end of the deal. Just with more sulking on your part, since her need to read is occasionally fed.) Never think 'quick gang, let's split up' is a good thing to do with a story. Because now you've got two series of actions going. I mean, yay, finally got Crunch worked in, (How many words is there to the whole silly thing before he shows up? 65k? Ridiculous.) but how am I supposed to solve the problem of a couple of batshit deities pulling everyone in a dozen different directions? No exploding temples this time. Hopefully.

Anyways, now that I've confused the captive audience, to recap that nonsense, the story goes. I will someday finish. (Considering the fact I'm adding to it primary in 300 word chunks, except when the muse attacks for 3000 words RIGHT NOW STOP WHAT YOURE DOING IGNORE THOSE CUSTOMERS THIS IS IMPORTANT, it could be a bit. But never fear, it's poked at daily. (If only because Carmen won't stop emailing me.)

*monkey dances*

And, at least my emails are a small step up from, "Are you done yet? Are you done yet? Are you done yet?" :3
But really, everything would be so much easier if your batshit deities would have the balls to fight their own conflicts out instead of making mortals be their unwitting proxies. *shakes fist*

I've had two or three spam comments to very old posts of mine, Usually they contain links to whatever it is they're spamming for. Though more subtle ones will post a pseudo-legit comment in hopes that it won't get deleted, and the links are actually on their profiles or such. Although maybe you just have a very excitable mystery fan. :D (Look up the IP addresses and google a list of spammers' IPs to compare, imo.)

And, truly, it might not hurt to friends-lock the posts anyway, to protect yourself from plagiarism. "Nikolai Ivanovich Lobachevsky was his name. Da da, da da, dadadada daaaaa. Hai!"

After googling around for "rozehaft" and finding similar comments (such as here and, very oddly, here), my guess is that, since they have a plus account, they plan on later editing any of their comments that were left undeleted, to have them contain spam links.

I'd tell you a joke, but my sense of humor has taken a sharp turn to ultra-crass the last year. Decent people don't, and shouldn't, laugh at these jokes.
