Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2014-260: Spam Back at Work

I had gone several days without posting.  When I got back on line I put out my offering and then checked the stats.  I was awestruck at the number of hits I had received.  I was beginning to think that I was finally getting what I deserved.  When I checked my spam I realized that I was probably right.  I had become a spam magnet.

I can go for days with no spam to delete.  My other blog is spam free.  This time when I check after few days I had 59 pieces of nonsense to get rid of.  It became clear that for some reason the spambots were being attracted to two of my old posts.  It was like flies on my pastry.  There were so many that I didn’t have time to scan them to see if there might be some gold among the dross.

Is it just my turn or have the people who need to get a life been hitting everyone lately?

  1. Each new post of mine will get up to half a dozen spam comments. But about once a week older posts will attract from 20 to 50 spam comments. Sometimes they go back to posts a couple of years old. One last month had over 200. They need to move out of Mom's basement and get a life.

    1. Thanks. It is good to know I am not the only one.

      I think most of it is done by automation and the people who start the things only get involved when someone responds.

      Again, thanks.

      Grace and peace.


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
