J-land's anniversary

Today it is 7 years ago since AOL opened its Journals service, only to close it a little over 5 years later. I'll keep this as a front post, but will close comments in a few weeks' time - to thwart spammers. Call for Support remains open for business, if and when required.

J-land was a wonderful community. It gave support to many (myself included) in difficult times, and friendships which continue (on- or off-line) today. The spirit of the community continues through blogs, Facebook and other social networking sites.

As there do not appear to be any objections, I shall archive this blog at the end of August. This means that it will no longer be possible to leave comments on this blog. The posts themselves (minus the previous one) will remain visible.

Do we need this blog?

I'm contemplating putting the stuff that used to be put on this blog on Call for Support in the future - leaving this as an archive. Any objections?

Comment spam

I just spent half an hour deleting a dozen spam comments in Chinese or Japanese on all my blogs. As a result, I'll moderating all comments on this blog prior to publication, in order to ward off this nuisance. This Blogger user goes by the Latin script username of disa. Having searched Google for an answer to this problem, I've found that they have no solution in place for it.
