Chasing the Wind

News. Faith. Nonsense.

Bad Behavior

Spammers are annoying.

I know I’ve mentioned this before – behind the scenes here at Chasing the Wind I delete a lot of spam. If you’re a first-time visitor, your comments are automatically moderated, meaning I have to approve it. Once I’ve approved one, the rest are automatically approved unless you use a naughty word.

That doesn’t stop spammers from trying, though. Earlier this week some spammer posted 300 advertisements for ordering shoes online. Mostly I get gambling sites, porn sites, and low mortgage rates. Exceedingly annoying to delete these daily, a real pain when they post 300 at a time.

So I’ve installed a WordPress plugin called Bad Behavior that’s supposed to stop 99% of these guys by analyzing their methods. It’s not supposed to affect real people, but there is always a chance. If you receive an error message, you should get an email telling you how to contact me, but my fervent hope is that that doesn’t happen.

About Me

Michael, a sinner saved by grace, sharing what the good Lord has shared with me.

Solomon, in the book of Ecclesiastes, said, “I have seen all the things that are done under the sun; all of them are meaningless, a chasing after the wind.”

If you’re not living for the glory of God, then what you’re doing is meaningless, no matter what it is. Living for God gives life meaning, and enjoying a “chasing after the wind” is a gift from God. I’m doing what I can to enjoy this gift daily.

Got questions? I’m not surprised. If you have any questions about Chasing the Wind, you can email me at
