"PREMISE: Our main issue is that we're seriously considering moving away from Blogspot and transitioning our blog to an independent URL (e.g. http://www.linuxandunixmenagerie.com and/or http://linuxandunixmenagerie.net or http://linuxandunix.net which we've already snatched up). That being said, we want you to know that we're not considering this arbitrarily or on pure whimsy ;) The following is a listing of some of our reasons for considering this move.

"a. To avoid comment spamming: This was a problem when we first started out because too many unmoderated comments about porno, violence, drugs, alcohol and everything else reprehensible to Google ended up on posts about "How to change directories" and the situation was unacceptable. Of course, Google would notice and we'd have to worry about getting that NC-17 intro page they put up on some blogs."
