In last month' post I wrote about the new direct messaging I setup and the concern about abuse from that (spam and privacy concerns). While I can't speak on the privacy part (I don't know if anybody is listening to that channel besides me), I can update on the spam part. Since going live I recieved exactly 0 unsolicited messages. Nada, zilch, bupkis, גורנישט. I'm a little disappointed with that since it shows that my blog is not read by millions of people (a shock, I know). But it also seems that automated scanners, scanning repos in Github don't act on this kind of information. With that, I plan on keeping everything running for the foreseeable furture.
