Minding the Store
Cheryl is traveling between Boston and New York today, and is apt to have erratic-at-best internet connections. So that means that I need to do more for SF Awards Watch
than kill spam, which is my main work for the site as one of its editors. As it happens, some awards news from Japan
came in overnight. We don't like letting these things sit around, so I did my best to craft it into a site posting. I reckon that if I made any significant style mistakes, Cheryl will be able to fix them when she can next get to an internet connection. In the meantime, the nominations have been posted as soon as we saw them, which is part of our self-appointed job at SFAW.
I admit to being slightly grumpy a few weeks ago, right after Cheryl got back to the USA, when we got a complaint about a comment spam that had been posted for a few hours. The filters don't catch everything, especially with human spam factories out there, so it's up to the human editors (Cheryl and me) to swat spam posts that slip through the filters. But we have to sleep sometimes, and particularly when we're both in the same time zone, there are a few hours each day when the spammers can get through until we wake up and look at what's come in overnight.
