Better Late than Comment Spam

Hi all,

I took a while to get Day 4 of our trek out there...sorry. I've also been deleting spam in our comments section rather alot (Spamalot). I hope that our pals at Blogger are working on a way to combat this as it is quite annoying. Don't be surprised if you are required to enter a verbal confirmation phrase embedded in a freaky graphic file soon.

Please come to my web blog and buy my useless trinkets. My mom is micking me out of the house today, so it all has to go

I put it on my site a week ago and I haven't had any comment spamming since.

DewKid said...

Yeah, thanks for the heads-up PunkinDunkin, I've added this feature to my blogs as well. Though I haven't been "discovered" yet by the spammers, I'd just as soon they were never successful.

Oh, cool, my word this time is "sxeix". I wonder what that means....

DewKid said...

And now "vrsyksg" in a sentance:

I went to the play today, and saw the most sxeix example of vrsyksg, since before my last birthday.

(okay, I'll stop now)

Eltigris growlies: I personally like the commercial where spam is represented by an actual annoying quirky salesperson. That way I could deal with a few on a "personal" level, I would imagine there would be a lots less around- around me anyway

DewKid said...

I like that ad too, but remember that there IS a person behind spam, somewhere, and he/she is probably a lot like that character.

Wanna' buy a monkey?

I agree, an extra step to avoid spam is no big deal, and for people who don't care enough to type a few extra characters don't need to be heard from anyways. At leat a human can read blogger's picture text, unlike Hotmail, which pops up with that feature every now and then.

Spam! The newest fuel source since Biodiesle! Think of it as a presto log for the environment! Its unique easy to store shape allows you keep it in the glove compartment or even under the left side of the drivers seat where all of your spare change falls. Who needs the Kyoto Protocough.... I mean col when you can have SPAM!

The Moody Minstrel said...

Welcome back, Vulgarius!

Vulgarius said...

Thanks. I'll be busy again for the next few days. My moms cousin is missing in New Orleans. We are busy searching through news photos to find him.

see ya'll later.

DewKid said...

What an awful tragedy. I wish you luck locating her cousin.

Don Snabulus said...

All our best to you, V. Let us know if we can help.

The Moody Minstrel said...

Keep us posted, at any rate.

Best wishes!
