A few weeks ago I wrote a post entitled A Small, Sad Ending about the demise of the baby doves in the nest just outside my back door and how their parents grieved. I thought it was a touching story.
Unfortunately it has attracted a continual round of pornographic spam links in the comments ever since it went up. It's not that I don't get pornographic spam links all the time and on many posts - and I'm sure I'm not alone in that - but the bulk of it gets caught up by Blogger and just has to be deleted every now and then. I don't even see it except when I clear it. What I'm getting now, though, escapes the net and comes to me for a decision. So if anyone has been wondering why I moderate comments you now know and you also know why I've reinstated word verification which I hope will block them.
