I love those occasions when I have time to let the internet lead me to places I find both topical and unusual. Usually the first few websites or blogs are ones I have visited before but when I let myself follow links, then that site or link leads to yet another--well, that's when it really starts to get interesting.
The problems arise when I want to re-trace my steps the next day and find one of the later sites or blogs again. First, I check 'history' to see if I perhaps didn't delete the record of my travels. If I was more efficient than usual then I just might be stuck. There's a lesson there.
The internet is not just entertaining but also informative. On another author blog I read today how to disable the annoying Captcha hoop that commenters must jump through. Too many times myself, I've had to make several attempts to decipher scribbled non-word and numbers when I've wanted to contribute a comment. I have, stubborn person that I can be, given up several times.
I have now followed the steps (too simple, really) to disable the feature. I understand that it can be necessary to keep it in place for bloggers that receive a lot of spam. But until that happens I will allow all comments. I will trust my readers to be thoughtful and respectful.
