Friday Funny

Dude!  What's that smell?!?

Poetic justice. Sweet, poetic justice.

I have been monstrously plagued by automated and real comments that aren't... well, real. You know the kind:

"I was recommended this web site by my cousin. I'm not sure whether this post is written by him as no one else know such detailed about my difficulty. You are amazing! Thanks! See my [totally unrelated and entirely bogus] webpage > something stupid you don't want or need."

I get at least a dozen of these a day. Sometimes I can get that many in an hour. Just writing about this probably will trigger the offenders' sensors and earn me hundreds more unwanted comments on this very post.

That's why I moderate comments. That's why I probably will always have to monitor comments. I wish I didn't have to, but I don't want that garbage anywhere on my blog.

Right before Christmas, I received a new comment from a frequent flyer, one who hits me several times a day. Every day. Normally the comments are word for word identical. This one was different.

This time, the faker, the jerk, the person I wish would lose internet connectivity permanently, wrote that he apparently had accidentally triggered the "notify me of comments" button and was getting four email notifications for every single comment on my blog. Would I please turn it off?

No way, Dude! You got yourself into this mess! May your armpits be infested with the fleas of 1,000 unwanted emails! Per hour!!!

Take that. Yeah!

  4. Ha! Ha! Well, I know those SPAMMERS. Finally some justice. :) A blogger friend told me to turn on 'Registered Users' on my comments and that stopped mine cold. I was amazed. I rarely got 'anonymous' comments anyway, so if anyone like that wants to comment they will just have to register I suppose. Can't believe the audacity of that person asking you to 'turn off' what he got himself into in the first place. Too funny.

    1. Yes, sweet, poetic justice! I can't turn on Registered Users Only because I have too many commenters who are legit but who do not have blogger or google accounts. So it's the price I pay. Very well worth it when I get a comment like the one above yours, Marigold!

  5. off topic if this works the person in the pic looks like you. The way you hold your camera and your hands. http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10151259375994359&set=a.10151259373764359.521657.301523504358&type=1&theater

    1. Anonymous, you cracked me up! Too many humorous responses to post! My first thought was we must have attended the same Photography 101 in college. :) And my second thought... not so kind. If he had been in any of my classes, he sure didn't pay attention when the instructors drilled into us over and over and over to NEVER dangle our monster lenses from our shoulders like that!!! Too much strain on the lens mount; good way to ruin the expensive camera AND the lens. Gives me shudders just looking at that photo!!!

    2. PS: VERY expensive monster lens!!!

  6. Hey I like your kind of style blog. I believe this is in the so much significant information for me. I am visit this website dailly and take fastidious data from here all the time. I'm very satisfied to peer at your post. Kindly visit my website, we could have a link exchange between us.

    Aaaaack!

    I don't know what's worse - the deplorable English or the idiocy of the content. So glad you have unintentionally managed to out-spam the spammer. :)

    1. Sue, your response has me laughing even harder than the spammer's!!! That was good!

      If I knew how to contact the person (they always are "anonymous" but leave a dangerous link), I would have written back and asked, "Is it my fault you spammed me four times on the same post and your English is so poor, you checked boxes you shouldn't have checked??? You are the one who must fix this; I don't have the ability." But of course, they wouldn't be able to comprehend what my reply would say because they can't read English. But hey, maybe they'd copy and paste it into new spam... :)

  10. I got exactly that same message! Seriously, I think that it was phrased exactly the same way. I, too, get dozens of spam comments per day but they all automatically go to my spam folder.

    You'd be surprised by how well the spam filter on blogger works - it catches 99.9% of those messages. The only downside is that it also thinks that one of my friends is a spammer so I have to rescue her comments from my spam box every day. Hmmm, but I just realized that you're not on blogger.

seldom heard, well must you keep your secrets
locked inside, hidden deep from view?

All spam is promptly and cheerfully deleted without ever appearing in print.

I apologize for turning off anonymous posting for a while. Too much garbage coming through; hope to get anonymous comments turned back on after a short break. If you don't have a Google account and need to contact me, please use the email address in the sidebar. Thank you!
