I just deleted about 50 or so registered users off this site. I suspect that most of them were just completely bogus accounts created by spambots. The way I’ve configured WP on here it is unlikely that I’ll ever suffer from comment spam, but I think that some automated systems create bogus users in an attempt to make some fancy tinned meat in comments, if not posts themselves.

So I glanced through the list and removed any account that looked implausibly inhuman. If I’ve deleted your account, and you are a plausible human, I apologize. Pick a better username next time, or don’t use a mail address in some bizarro TLD.

  2. That’s a relief -I’m apparently still recognized.

  3. It would have been very humiliating to be confused with a can of processed luncheon meat…

  4. Just checking that I am still around. I`m getting married next weekend, so I havent been so active here or in the Jag community lately. I will be visiting more frequently once things have slowed down a bit.

  5. No worries Ove. I didn’t delete anyone who has commented before, or anyone I “know” .. be it really or virtually.

    I just deleted a bunch of mostly unrecognizable usernames.
