PSA: Ignore Malicious Comment Spam

Housekeeping.

Apologies for a second email. I just want to tell everyone, that comments like this are spam bots:

You should never click on these links (they likely represent a security risk for your computer), and it is pointless to interact with them, because these are automated comments posted by a computer program somewhere.

In theory I can ban commenters, but these bots take advantage of some kind of glitch, which makes banning them impossible. I am in contact with Substack about this, and I delete these comments when I find them. I am, however, but one person, so I only catch a few.

If you use antivirus software, it may block access to my substack, as a result of this spam. Please understand, all links I include are to scientific studies or media websites that are totally safe for your computer.
