If You Don’t Comment Today, You’ll Be Deleted From Hennessy’s View


If you registered as a user but never commented AND you want to continue getting an email notification when new blogs are posted, all you have to do is COMMENT on this blog. Say anything, like “don’t delete me, bro.”

Here’s why: my blog has about 8,000 registered users. That sounds great, I know, but it’s not. Most of these registered users are zombies. They were created by a spam bot so the bot could post spam comments.

These zombie users slow down the sight for everyone, and they present a security risk. Plus, they prevent me from implementing a cool new newsletter feature I’ll tell you more about in the next couple of weeks.

I am going to delete every user who has never commented on this blog on Tuesday, July 29 at 6:00 pm.

So why aren’t there a bunch of spammy comments with all these zombies hanging around? Good question. I use Akismet spam blocker to block spam comments. But I require commenters to be registered users. While Akismet stops the comments, it doesn’t stop the registration spammers.

After I clean up the zombies, I’m going to install software to block new zombie users, but that won’t affect you.

Once again, if you want to remain on my email list and able to comment, you must comment by 6:00 pm CDT on Tuesday, July 28, 2014.

If you get deleted, just re-register. I hope you do.

And if you haven’t registered, I recommend making a note on your calendar to do so AFTER Tuesday.

  1. Keep up the good fight. I’m with you all the way.Thank you for all the good info!

  2. Don’t delete me bro, you’re my favorite TEA party guy and I brag about you to all my out of town friends who don’t have a guy like you to give us the scoop! Love ya Bill!

  3. I always read your commentary first thing in the morning. Thanks for doing such a great job.

  4. HiBill: I enjoy and appreciate your posts and often forward them to like minded people. The elites in the party are an anathema to me. I walked the streets fr some of them and they became then too big for their britches! The first Tea Party under the arch enthused me again. Thanks. ajaomie

    1. Me too! Bill, I had to unsubscribe from this and other blogs, due to too much email! But I bookmarked this one to check in regularly. Does this mean no more sign-in to comment from other services? It’s also a way to help confuse tracking! Select posts are subscribed through WordPress! Do NOT make me cry! I love you!

  5. Jheez Bill…this is a tough site for a right leaning libertarian to hang around and read straight forward, timely newsy introspect and thought provoking articles. Don’t out me bro!

  6. I usually have no need to comment because Hennessy’s opinions are succinct, clear stated and spot on.
