Damn, Spambots

 I've been getting hit with a LOT of spam comments recently. I still allow anonymous comments (although they are screened) because sometimes they come from actual friends and I hate to force anyone to register just to comment - I doubt they'd bother. Many of the spammy comments come from actual registered lj accounts anyway. 

I also had a really stoopid IM session with a bot on AIM. It got all bent outta shape when I figured out it was a bot.
