Comment on 'Comments'

I love it when a visitor to the Blog takes the time to leave a comment, and try to make a point of writing back when possible. Now I know a lot of messages are 'no reply' but normally there is some form of identification as to who originated it. Today I received an anonymous comment containing a link to animated greeting cards site but no clue as to who left it, not even in 'properties' .

I am a little suspicious about the message as it mentioned Jacquie Lawson cards being available. I know for a fact that Jacquie's cards are not free but only available on subscription, and given the recent scare about viruses being spread by bogus 'greeting card' messages I've decided not to publish the comment as the last thing I would want for Christmas is for my (or anyone else's !!) PC to crash!

If the message was genuine, then my apologies to the person who left it, but I do feel it is a chance I can't take - also the Blog will no longer accept anonymous comments, sorry folks !!

I love Jacquie Lawson. The village which features in her cards is near where we used to live.

Some of her cards are free.

I think you did the right thing. There's actually a new "virus" that can be gotten simply from going on web pages (MicroSoft is scurrying to put in new security measures for this, so update!) without even downloading anything. You can't be too careful!
