We have been having an epic battle with spam bots, including fake “subscribers” who somehow manage to get past our Captcha and other screens and clog up our roster with thousands (literally) of fake “subscriber” e-mails/handles that clog up our works. I just got through a systematic culling. I moved most of the legitimate people – regulars/known actual humans and not bots or spammers – to “contributor” status. In future, anyone who wants to subscribe to EPautos will need to send either myself or Dom an e-mail asking about it and we’ll set it up. It’s become a tedious time-waster dealing with these &*!!&! spammers and bots. Genug, already.
I’m still very interested in hearing from anyone out there who might be interested in writing for the site. Especially someone who wants to write about classic cars or motorcycle and can write about them. It can be for fun, or it can be for real – in the sense that EPautos has traffic enough to be a legitimate reference/clip bank for someone interested in establishing himself (or herself) as a motor journalist. Please contact us if you might be that person.
I’m also herewith announcing my reluctant availability for radio/TV interviews. I am an introvert by nature, so these things are ordeals for me – but I recognize it’s necessary to get the word out, not just about EPautos but about our message of liberty, live – and let live. So, if you’re a radio programming manager or host (or whatever) and are possibly interested in having me hold forth on some topic that’s been written about here or that’s related, drop me a line.
Finally, my thanks to everyone who has recently supported the site financially. We appreciate it very much. You also have my promise that I will not pester you more often than is absolutely necessary to keep us afloat. We’re not looking to get rich; but we do have to earn a living.
