FROM THE MANAGEMENT
All comments are now closed after 30 days of posting.
This is to control spam and general prevention of identity theft through hacking from the comment areas and meta links (like the admin log-on links).
The main aim for me is to control the trolling comments on old posts and other troublemaking. We all have 24 hours in the day; the rest is up to us.
This doesn’t affect upvoting and likes, both of which remain fully functional.
To secure your WordPress.com site:—
- Go to your Admin Dashboard
- On lefthand menu, click Settings > Discussion
- In “Other comment settings,” tick “Automatically close comments on articles older than  days“
- Scroll down and click “Save changes” button
I highly recommend you do the same for your site now.

It’s a crying shame, but I suppose it had to happen sooner or later. I wouldn’t mind paying, but I spent all my money on food, drinks and other useful stuff of life.
I discovered this only yesterday (St Swithin’s Day) and was going to put this up:—
Sorry, I meant this:—

I think most of us should be on 2015 by now — and probably falling apart like everything else is already in this world of ours.
Normally on the first day of the new year, I post this sort of embarrassment to remind peep’l just who (and what) is behind the unfunny hilarity of this blog. I broke with my own tradition and posted this shameless nonsense for 2014.
I might as well go with breaking the tradition for this year.
Because heaven knows when the next post will ever come…
For your viewing pleasure, some nosey-parkery random fun facts about The Naked Listener.
Each item originates from at least one serious, factual, objective detail about me. They’re only done up in a special way to make them seem less serious.

BECAUSE of a subsystem error routine in my right shoulder, I’ve not updated the background image for last month and only now getting round to the November one.
Carpet and walnut side table, by me, taken sometime in November 2014.
It’s not the best of wallpapers, but you get the idea…
