HBO — to Bob

Bearable Bob: “I don’t know…but it seems like the Cialis and Viagra spammers have just hammered this site ever since DFO’s rather simmering description of cowboy man love.”

DFO: I didn’t know my description was “simmering” (to remain at or just below the boiling point). I was relatively dispassionate at the time, trying to repeat to you the way the Berry Picker reported it to me. BTW, he said that, overall, “Brokeback Mountain” was a decent flick. But your contention that there’s some link between the Cialis/Viagra spam and my, ahem, simmering is way off base. I’ve been slammed with the stuff for awhile, and the blogmeister is hesitant to block the words because manufacturers of those products also advertise. So, what’s a humble blogger to do? I routinely delete the C/V spam when I see it — and move on. I do the same to a troll that we’ve picked up from the Athol area. If anyone needs the products, however, I could leave a few bits of spam online, as a public service. ;-)
