With my blog under attack from robotic comment spammers (video poker, viagra, etc.), and my email account all but crippled as a result, I have moved my blog from bethechange.org, where it has been hosted for the past two years.
Or I should say: my brother in service, Nipun, has moved it. He took the blue pill and fearlessly waded into the land of code — a place technotards like me dare not tread — and rescued the 175 postings I have made since this narcissistic exercise began. WordPress and I did the easy stuff.
Over the next several weeks, I will be re-uploading many of the past entries from the memestream archive, and adding new posts as well. Happily, the spam comments will be a thing of the past. If the Dalai Lama can bear the Chinese no malice, then who am I to stay pissed-off at the robo-spammers? Still, I say: “Good riddance!”
Sadly, I will not be able to transfer the wonderful commentary — usually more insightful than the original postings themselves — that so many of you have contributed over the years, with respect to the old entries. I am hopeful that, starting today, you will re-establish the pattern of lively debate and provocative give-and-take which we have seen on this blog over the past two years. Let the comments fly!
