I recently switched this blog to use moderated comments, which is a Blogger feature that allows me to preview comments before they are actually posted online. I hope that doesn't discourage future comments.

There was an anonymous comment added to my prior post about junk email that I felt was inappropriate - the comment mentioned a person by name and gave their email and cell phone. I have no way to verify the information provided, so I felt that it was improper to leave the comment as-is. I re-posted the comment, but deleted the personal reference.

The point of my prior post was to alert the community that senders of junk email are getting more aggressive in trying to pry your personal information from you. If you receive an email from an unknown source, you are far better off simply deleting it.
