Did you know it's American Diabetes Alert Day? Did you know 1 in 5 Americans are at risk for developing Type 2 Diabetes? It's a great day to educate yourself about diabetes if you don't already have it, or educate others if you do already have it. There are some great posts at Diabetes Mine and Six Until Me about this today, and whether you're type 1 or 2, you should check them out. They've said more than I have time to say today.
However, today is a different kind of alert day here at Dorkabetic. It's an alert that I'm starting to screen your comments. Nothing to panic about, but a recent post of mine generated some responses that I don't think have much integrity. If you find them, for the record, I have nothing against Pump Wear, Inc. I think they have some decent products, especially for kids, and even some items that I would buy for myself, but I have gotten enough anonymous comments on a previous post referencing their website that I'm downright suspicious.
Surely there are plenty of Anonymous Commenting Lurker Moms out there who buy Pump Wear products for their kids, but I don't think that every one of them is going to leave me a comment with a link back to the Pump Wear website. Sounds sneaky if you ask me. Very sneaky.
I don't go around to other diabetes blogs anonymously commenting about how Dorkabetic is the best diabetes blog ever written or the only blog you'll ever need or is somebody's kid's favorite blog.
Hahaha, I use my actual name when I say that stuff.
Really, I just want everyone to not be alarmed when they try to comment and something seems bizarre. I changed my settings. It happens.
