While my disappearance from this Blog hasn’t (thankfully) inspired the kind of attention the late evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson got when she slipped away from a beach in Venice, California, some explanation may be in order.

Two things have kept me away: (1) extreme busy-ness at my day job and (2) a sense of disgust over the online world for a while. I’m conflicted about the latter point, as you might imagine. Just about anyone who writes has to be online and relies on e-mail, the Internet, and so forth, with great regularity. However, the rise in spam and e-mail attacks, such as this one described by News.com’s Joris Evers, are enough to make one ill. I easily receive 200 to 300 spam e-mails daily. Most are trashed by various systems, but Yahoo! Mail isn’t doing this and I’m fried at having to delete the same rotten messages over and over again.

I’m over it — or, perhaps, just over myself — now. Expect a resumption of blogging, at least until the spam bots crash all the e-mail servers on Earth.
