After six years of writing the Game to 100 blog, I’ve decided to hang it up and note on my permanent record card that I produced 771 posts. I have found satisfaction in the writing process and appreciated the civil commentary and helpful editing notes from readers.
The stats show 1,584 published comments and 259,804 unpublished spam comments. Occasionally, some spammers were clever enough to slip their pitches through my automated spam-rejection tool by using generic flattery. These trolls in disguise would refer to my “awesome post” or “wonderful article” and hope for a fatal click.
I will sign off with a line from T.S. Eliot about the writing game:
… One has only learnt to get the better of words for the thing one no longer has to say, or the way in which one is no longer disposed to say it.
