Before my current sewing adventure, I had one fling with sewing back in 2007 when I made this dress shirt. You can see from it, I had most of my fashion philosophy even way back then. Bold colours. Clear and easily defined. Asymmetry. Distinct look. Details. Memorable.

I am currently on another round of dress shirt fitting for myself with help from others, so I’d be making some muslins till I get it right. Seeing how many I went through on the last round of self fitting, and knowing I’d be starting much closer to the end product this time, I got the brilliant idea of making muslins out of flannel, and seeing them through to the finish to be pajama tops!
My hero in life outside of my Parents.
It’s probably been close to a year now, but the spamming comments just has been getting worse and worse on WordPress! Tonight I got over 20! That’s a lot of wasted time to clean out things if I were to be consistently good at it. Not vetting comments before they get posted is just a way for these people to get free click throughs and make it hard for anyone who cares to look through the comments.
WordPress’ spam filters hasn’t seemed to have kept up with the times. Surely they can do better! Block stuff with multiple links. Block website userIDs unless it is a popular social media ID. People can still use bogus emails if they really want to comment but don’t want to give their real emails. But bogus email spam is of little value because there are no click throughs to sites… considering the suggestion I also had about blocking multiple links in a comment. They might get one link there, but someone would have to actually read the comment to see the link, not just see it in a widget on the sidebar.
Also, there are many repeated phrases. Catch some of them. Not all of them. Just some. That’s enough for a few blocks.
I remember the days when hardly any spam came through with Askimet protecting against spam. Something has not kept up with the times. Whatever it is, I hope it is soon because it is really annoying. Banning comments defeats the purpose of the blog as a social media tool of sorts.
WordPress folks, are you listening? Good luck!
