A few weeks ago I upgraded to Movable Type 3.2 (Movable Type is the nice and easy software that allows me to maintain this site). Since that upgrade I’ve noticed an increase in the number of attempted comments to the site – the vast majority of which are spam. I did, however, decide to approve one over the weekend on a post from 2004 from Rik, a sickened viewer, who seems to feel either that I have some relationship with Channel 4 or, perhaps, that I am some kind of comrade in the flight to rid ‘offensive and repulsive’ programming from our television screens. Neither is true but I have no problem at all with the fact that he found a programme – which I never saw – to be so worthy of such comments.
What does interest me is how somebody reading this site could so clearly think it is something other than a personal site. You see, it’s the small things that amuse me.
