I just changed my feed. I hated to do it because now anyone who wants to read the entire post will have to come here to do it. It makes me angry that the selfishness and greed of others makes everyone's life more complicated.
Thanks to HBM for the additional information.
All is well here; I've just been busy. I'll try to get back later tonight or early tomorrow with some actual family stuff.
Two things that I've just learned:
1) If you change your feed to a short feed (in Blogger, go to your settings, and to Site Feed, and you'll see it there), it's much harder for them to get you.
2) Google AdSense has, apparently, pulled their ads from Bitacle. Heard this via Tammie and Soul Gardening.
