Administrative notice on registration and comments

By Vince Giuliano

In this blog, you must register as a subscriber in order to post comments.  If you have had trouble registering, have found your registration cancelled or are having trouble posting comments, please read on.

I turned off new registrations for a few days last week because we were receiving many phony new registrations by spam bloggers (sploggers).  These are people who use robots to register on multiple blogs and to post comments which advertise products or refer back to their own websites  Sploggers do this in order to enhance the search engine rankings of their own sites and do not care about our blog or any other one they attack.  A typical robot-generated comment by a splogger could read “Nice and interesting blog.  You might want to check out my site at”  Another one from yesterday is “Welcome to visit my blog! you can find your dream.”  Some spam comments are detailed boldface advertisements such as for leather boots or imported Viagra or products I don’t endorse like HGH.

For some time I have used software to block most such comments, but still the splogger registrations kept rolling in.  And in the last few days several spam comments snuck through. Last night I ran a program that purged our subscriber list of known or suspected sploggers.  And now I have turned the registration process back on.  So, if you have mistakingly been thrown off the subscriber list, I invite you to re-subscribe.

I may have to implement a Captcha system where registering people have to figure out and copy weird letters.

And please if you are having trouble registering, posting comments or otherwise using this blog, let me know by writing me at at


About Vince Giuliano

Being a follower, connoisseur, and interpreter of longevity research is my latest career. I have been at this part-time for well over a decade, and in 2007 this became my mainline activity. In earlier reincarnations of my career. I was founding dean of a graduate school and a university professor at the State University of New York, a senior consultant working in a variety of fields at Arthur D. Little, Inc., Chief Scientist and C00 of Mirror Systems, a software company, and an international Internet consultant. I got off the ground with one of the earliest PhD's from Harvard in a field later to become known as computer science. Because there was no academic field of computer science at the time, to get through I had to qualify myself in hard sciences, so my studies focused heavily on quantum physics. In various ways I contributed to the Computer Revolution starting in the 1950s and the Internet Revolution starting in the late 1980s. I am now engaged in doing the same for The Longevity Revolution. I have published something like 200 books and papers as well as over 430 substantive.entries in this blog, and have enjoyed various periods of notoriety. If you do a Google search on Vincent E. Giuliano, most if not all of the entries on the first few pages that come up will be ones relating to me. I have a general writings site at and an extensive site of my art at Please note that I have recently changed my mailbox to
