I don't like spam!



Sadly, I am not talking about the variety that Graham Chapman and company are speaking of. I'm talking about the crap that clutters up our inboxes.

Lately, my darling kittens, I have been getting anonymous comments promising me that I can earn $2,000 a day if I just invested in this online program. They have been so frequent that I have no choice but to establish the following policy:

Anonymous comments will NOT be published.


This is especially true if you promise me that my short dark brown hair will turn a lovely shade of blonde if I take 30 of your Insta-Blonde pills three times a day. It is also true if you say I can make $10,000 a day if I whore myself by using your website.

Have y'all been receiving such comments in higher frequency these days, kittens? Or is it just me? Fortunately I moderate my comments, so I can weed out the ones by this "anonymous" fellow. But if you are new to the blog, please make a note of this.

Merci beaucoup, mes amis.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.

i've gotten tond of spam the past few weeks. Ridiculous.

I've been getting them lately as well. Most have been on older posts, so I set posts more than a week old to moderation. That seems to have nipped the problem in the bud.

And I love both of those Monty Python scenes! Gosh, now I feel like singing about Spam...

I got infertility span on my blog. Which is pretty crappy. But also, a little funny.

It's a minor pain in the ass, but still a pain in the ass. Had to do the same thing when a blast from the past decided to go paranoid schizo in my blog comments. Never really had a prob with ad type spams, though. Welcome to bloggy censorship.

I've been thinking about doing the same thing, turning off anonymous commenting...its getting to be a pain.

I have been getting lots of spam comments lately, some even in Chinese. What is going on?

Ann said...

I have been getting very different kinds of comments lately. I'm trying to figure out what I've joined, or just where they're coming from. So frustrating!

Thanks for the comic relief w/ Monty Python.

J. Kaye said...

Had the same issue. Had to put my comments on moderation.

I'm sick of all of the VIAGRA spam I get. Where does it come from? It's worse than the junk mail I receive at home!

Jenners said...

My spam did go up recently ... which is why I switched to that Disqus format.

And now I have that Spam song going through me head!

Marie said...

but the lumberjack song rocks.
i hate spam too. i don't even see the point- who opens those wretched things anyway?

Jodi said...

Luckily I haven't gotten any spam. Thank God.

Sorry I totally suck as a bloggy friend! Hope all is well with you!

You can change your settings so that people cannot even comment as anonymous. I had to do that....
