    why do i let through this spam?
    because is weed, of the virtual world.
    I’ve decided not to stop spam coming through because is alive, is one of the few reaction i’m having from this blog.
    once lucas said (see post http://www.weedyconnection.com/blog/?p=8 [sorry havent set-up a link back feauture yet]) “a blog is like a garden, you need to keep watering it and look after it, for it to grow”…at times i think my blog would look better as an abanodoned garden, filled with weeds, where every now n then i plant a seed and leave it to its own devices, if it is strong will come on top of the weeds… at the moment the Oxalis post is getting snowed uinder by spam, but hey, the ground is fertile, and where the post is no storng enough to find attention, spam will, so be it.
