I'm working on more substantive, mathy posts, but in the meantime, I'm pissed, so I'm making a quick off-topic post.(via)
With the horrible things that are going on in Gaza right now, I've gotten a raft of antisemitic spam. Most of it has been through private mail, but some has been in comments on the blog.

Sometimes, it's just being off topic
When you go off topic, to spam someone who writes about math with antisemitic messages, you've got a problem. Of course, it doesn't help to start your comment with "You fucking Jew," but if you're looking at a computer scientist and all you can see is a Jew, you don't have to go down that "fucking Jew" road.
