I don't know how this happened, but apparently the spammers have finally discovered my LiveJournal. I just spent 20 minutes locking comments on the random old entries that they're suddenly leaving daily comments on.
I'm scratching my head over their business model. Does it really pay to put links to a website selling Real Ginuien Louis Vuttion Bags on a journal entry that was posted in 2007? Sure, they have automated programs to do it for them, and probably are stealing someone else's bandwidth to do it, so if even 1 in 250,000 entries from 2007 somehow gives them a clickthrough, I guess they'll consider it worth it. But even setting up the automated programs takes some effort that could be better spent, I don't know, shoplifting or something.
I also renewed my extra userpics. Part of me thinks it's silly because I post here...what...every two months, on average? Why am I paying $30 a year to maintain my layout style and userpics for a mostly-dead journal? But I have a lot of good memories, and I miss everyone, and...well...I just hate to completely abandon it all.
I hope everyone is having a decent fall, and no one on the East Coast has been hurt too badly by the superstorm.
