Each day I receive dozens of spam e-mails in the form of comments to posts at Anecdotal Evidence. Some are written in languages and alphabets I cannot read. Few conform to any grammar I recognize. Many consist of nothing but URLs. Some hawk pharmaceuticals and pornography. Often they read like Language Poetry. Tuesday evening I was removing the accumulated trash and inadvertently deleted a number of recent legitimate comments. It was nothing personal and I regret the error.
