Auntie Candy here, folks, and she is not a happy camper. So I have an announcement to make.

First, I found that a post has apparently vanished off my fic-blog. I know I posted it here because it was a story for 100fandomhell and I cross-posted to the community with a link back to the story here - it was an Invader Zim story. That link now leads nowhere, and the post does not seem to exist on this journal any longer. Nor does the tag. This...alarms me. It really does. Because I know I didn't delete it.

Secondly, this journal has been getting spammed to high heaven and back, primarily by anonymous commenters. It vaguely amuses me when I get spam-posts regarding purchasing drugs like tramadol or generic Viagra online. For those not in the know, I'm a pharmacy technician for a living, and in the process of returning to school to become a pharmacist. Also, Viagra doesn't have a generic. It's still under patent. Just an FYI.

But the fact is that I can't keep up. The comments are popping up on older posts as well as newer ones, and I don't have time to keep up with them and keep deleting them all. I deleted probably twenty of these comments in the last half-hour or so.

So it's with a heavy heart that I'm disabling anonymous commenting on this journal. I'm hoping this will be a temporary measure. I've always loved lurkers (deluding myself that I have some, of course), and I love getting comments from them. But between working full time and taking classes...I just can't keep up with the spam.

I'm sorry, and I appreicate your understanding on this matter.

Anonymous comments can be so annoying sometimes :/ A lot of people I know have been getting spam lately and it's really depressing.

As for the missing entry/tag--I'm having a similar issue. I had a few recipes saved in my journal and now they're all gone. Lots of panicking considering I can't remember the recipe >
