Analytics tell of bots





red mug, blue linen, a blog
you are reading, is enjoying
another siege of aggressive
bots, splattering this week,
as sometimes happens in this
mode of communication, wheth-
er or not the news be merry.

I don't particularly object 
to this, apart from a tran-
sitory suppression of real-
time distribution to loyal
readership markets, because
the blog is both a vehicle
of recurring greeting, and
a semi-permanent database.

These surfs tend to subside;
as I suggested, this is not
the first. Then the patterns
of stable readership return;
thus, this is a posting less
of umbrage than of gratitude.
