I just deleted 582 spam comments. Many of them may well have been legitimate comments from respectable Christian Americans, or tolerable screeds of semi-relevant blather from moonbats which at least pertain to the posts in question.
Spam is the enemy of free discourse. It is the enemy of freedom. Most of it comes from Godless totalitarian countries like Nigeria, Russia, and Finland. These pests use the Internet invented by America to destroy American freedom. They are the enemies of freedom.
Domestically, the enemies of liberty are called traitors. Overseas, they are terrorists and evildoers. Something must be done to punish them for their wickedness.
Consider this an open thread for discussing the problem, and any possible solutions. I’ve added my own suggestion in the title.
