It was bound to happen eventually. I never got much spam on this blog until I posted an entry entitled "How to cast a spell" and then it slowly started to trickle in. New Age-y pagan spam, ridiculous in its content, would occasionally appear on the page, obviously attracted to the words 'cast a spell'
But now it's spreading to other pages, I'm getting pagan spam on both older and newer posts I've made, and to stem the tide I have put up one of those 'type a word' comment gates. I hate those things when I have to go through them to leave a comment, and so, I apologize.
