Thanks for the comments, replies

a. I have been *manually* writing / commenting on these blogs.

b. In many cases my comments have been welcome. At least they are not
necessarily cleaned up

I agree with your view and I'm sure you feel strongly against automated

Let me try to clarify

As I said I am fully against spam

I will be logged into blogger (or similar blog sites) *while*
*commenting* so that my blogger (respective site) user name is displayed.

I mentioned this specifically to say that I'll identify myself and would
NOT be some "anonymous" poster

As I said many of these are sort of "sister blogs". I should have
clarified that the search is sort of one time facility if I have
forgotten a particular URL

> Would you be willing to accept

YES ! provided they are following the same practices I've outlined above
(i.e.) relevant topics, limits on number of posts etc.

Ok !!

Let us leave that search facility.

thanks again for giving me a chance to clarify

Sorry to hear that your blog is targeted thus

I suppose you can turn on word verification, "no anon" blogs etc.
features to reduce spam

Thanks and regards
