Comments Turned Off For Foreseeable Future

Because the blog has been getting bombarded with disgusting spam, even though I have all comment moderation turned on, I have turned off (aka 'hidden') comments and have no plans to turn them back on. I think the spammers hope that a blog moderator will accidentally click on one of their nefarious links while trying to mark the comment as spam. That is why the spammers will jump through all the hoops, knowing their comments will never be posted.

BTW 'hiding' comments was supposed to show past 100's of comments but prevent future comments, but that does not seem to be working. I'll have to look into that more.
