I am truly sorry that I have put those funky letters back on but without them I have about a dozen "spam" a day. most have the word Afganastan in them... therefore I do not even want to open them in my email to "moderate". I will wait 2 weeks and try to take it off again... that is ... IF I can because when they change the interface I can not find how to change it again ...nor can I find how to change ANYTHING in my template again... I guess Blogspot doesn't want you to have ANY control over your blog anymore.
sorry to let off steam like that. if it would be easier for you all to send a comment in email please do that.. I have very few commentors but I like each and every one of you, and I hate to loose you because of those idiot letters. Meanwhile, if anyone of you is on the new interface can you tell me where I find my settings and comment spam and things I can change like that... thank you!
