Hey friends,
I am really happy that you all think of this log so highly, and it makes me extremely happy. I have been contacted by many readers on issues regarding spam, twitter handle etc. So here are are a few guidelines:

  1.  My twitter handle is @Arun_Baby. Those interested in staying updated are most welcome to follow me. But to serve you better I request you to please mention me in a tweet that says that you also read my blog. Please feel free to ask for a follow back!
  2. I have received comments that say that user comments have not appeared. Please understand that spam is really headache for me. Thus I have a system in which each comment has to be moderated separately by me. Once I have moderated your comments (which I’ll try to do the earliest but it’s getting tough as I get almost 90 comments a day) your comments will become visible. Meanwhile                              PLEASE DO NOT REPEAT THE SAME COMMENT AGAIN AND AGAINhoping that it will appear (YOU’RE SPAMMING THAT WAY!!!).
  3. I am really concerned about your safety.                                                                                                                                                                             DO NOT PUT YOUR E-MAIL ADDRESS ON COMMENTS AS SUCH: YOU MAY BE SPAMMED.Please hide it using a captcha and then post it on a comment. It is a slight trouble but trust me it’s worth it.
