The spam comments are back.

I'm wondering if changing the name on the submit button from "Submit" to "Add to Cart" will deter bots.  Ah, heck.  I'm gonna try it . . .

Veteran's Day is always November 11th. Just happens to be a Friday this year.

About Veterans Day (or, more appropriately, Armistice Day - I hate it when they rename holidays or move their dates around to create long party weekends) in the U.S. - https://www.stevenhardesty.com/blog-2/2022/11/8/veterans-day-for-just-one-american-hero

On the other hand, according to the eMail, a new girl wants to meet me.  And she's a "hottie."  Probably also Russian given that the URL ends in .ru.


A Russian hottie, eh?  Awesome!  What could possibly go wrong?    :icon_eek:

Okay, which one of you is the spammer?

Because after I posted this:

I am tempted to actually send a bill to some of these spammers that leave contact information just to see how they might react.

Spam comments slowed down and have seemingly now stopped.  :icon_think:

I had to send myself a test on Saturday just to make sure it was working.

What local veterans agencies? I'm dubious. Sounds like just another law firm looking to cash in.

They are local agencies overseen by the county government.

The Veteran's administration site has a lot of information about disability benefits for Camp Lejeune victims, but nothing about the lawsuit.

Between this and the phone calls telling me I may have been injured in the Camp Lejuene mess the last fifty years... Never been there in my life. I had friends who married Marines. I'm pretty sure they're smart enough to figure out how to join a class action suit.

There have been ads on that on TV one after another, from different law firms.  Now the local veterans agencies are advertising to tell veterans that may have served at Camp Lejuene to contact the local agency who can help them for free.

Alas, they don't have the advertising budgets of the law firms so those ads don't run nearly as often.
