Really disgusted

I am a serial blogger.  Not cereal.  Serial.   I gave it up for quite a while.  Reasons here, reasons there .  . reasons, reasons everywhere.  

One primary reason is the litany of pornographic comments on my posts, especially those containing photographs of my daughters.  There are some sick sons of bitches out there and I consciously made an effort to minimize my digital photographic footprint, especially for my innocents.  

Today, before crafting this post, I cruised through the comments again only to find all the nasty back.  Ewww.  Stop.  

I'm watching and waiting.   I know I have plenty to say, but right now, it all revolves around this:  stop, you sick, sick, twisty f'ers.
