Over the last three days I reported 105 bogus accounts. Again, most were posting under the “blog” or “daily entries” goal.

I also watched a lot of Deep Space Nine on YouTube. Today, I am going to some Army training.

My new number for 2014 is 3625 reported SPAM accounts.

"update April 12"

Was here on and off all day, and did a SPAM report binge. The short of it is I reported 300 bogus accounts. Again, most were posting under the “blog” or “daily entries” goal.

It was a nice day. I gave a lot of cheers away, and watched a lot of Star Trek on YouTube. I fucking love Star Trek.

My new number for 2014 is 3520 reported SPAM accounts.

"another 100"

Yesterday I had the same group of students collect trash before we started class. There were five boys in the group, and they suggested it. For whatever reason, they like cleaning up around the building. I think the “bonus behavior points” I give them has something to do with it. ;)

However, one of my kids (Daniel) stood back when we were done and admired the work. He looked over at me and said “It sure looks a lot better. We should start over by the fence next time, because the wind is blowing all sorts of trash there”.

I picked up a hundred bits of paper and broken junk.
