Dear Reader

My posts have been pretty sporadic lately. I have no real excuse other than the fact that once I let a day or two slide, several more slither away right behind.

          Then again, maybe I’ve been frightened off by some of the word salads I’ve received on my posts.

          In response to my post Ladies’ Night, about a gathering of minds in my town, I received this:

A person necessarily help to make severely posts I'd state. This is the first time I frequented your website page and thus far? I amazed with the research you made to create this particular submit incredible. Wonderful task!

          Can’t say I did much research. I mostly just sat around and swilled wine.

          Better than that, though, regarding the same post:

All the police and fire still do thai porn.

        Who knew?

          On my observation a few years ago that professional sports sometimes seem to be the male version of afternoon soap operas (The Guiding Light and the NFL):

There is SHOCKING news in the sports betting world. It's been said that any bettor must watch this, Watch this now or quit betting on sports... Sports Cash System - Robotic Sports Betting Software.

          Um – I was writing about soap operas, folks.

          In September, when I wrote about retractable claws for coeds on the go (Back to School with a Vengeance), I received:

I am in fact thankful to the owner of this website who has shared this enormous paragraph at this place.

          It was barely a page, hardly an enormous paragraph.

          In Where Men are Men and Women are too, I confessed to a fascination with the sudden glut of reality shows that take place in Alaska.

If you want your ex-girlfriend or ex-boyfriend to come crawling back to you on their knees (even if they're dating somebody else now) you need to watch this video right away...

          Thank you Blogger, for reaching out.

          Ladies Who Lunch was just an accounting of my introduction into our condo community, but it apparently had deeper meaning for this person.

This is the right site for everyone who wants to find out about this topic. You understand so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I personally would want to? HaHa). You certainly put a brand new spin on a subject that's been written about for years. Excellent stuff, just wonderful.

          No, I’m not concerned at all. Really.

          I’m sure that reader is juuust fine.


  1. Sigh. The spam bots have been v busy across the blogosphere. One of them copied a piece of legit comments. And appears all too frequently for my liking.

  2. I don't know if I could have compiled all these. I consign them to spam and delete at once. Too much to be responsible for.

  3. I tick all mine as spam too and delete the spam folder right away. In the beginning I would read them and wonder just what they were thinking, since their words had little or no bearing on my topic, but I got sick of them very quickly.

  4. One porn gal is getting through every once in a while...usually on posts a day or two old. Idiots:(

  5. I have a pretty good spam filter, but one gets through every now and then. They are so obvious, but I think I'll pass on writing down the porn ones I still find on my site. Enjoyed your comments on them, though. :-)

  6. yep, here too. deleted immediately and reported to Blogger. usually I get five or six at once on consecutive posts.

  7. Weird, but strangely fascinating. Makes you wonder whether it's computer generated or some nut job, or someone who doesn't speak English very well. My name is Lesley, and I get loads of Spam inviting me to meet sexy lonely ladies in my area. My husband thinks this is a hoot! I'm not so sure. lol

    1. Welcome, Lesley.!
      In the Us there'd be less doubt about your gender, but I know there your name is a bit more gender neutral.
      Then again, pretty much anything goes now.

  8. Oh yeah, the spam parade. I delete all that stuff. It can be mildly amusing, but not nearly as funny as those "Nigerian scam" e-mails that reach my inbox occasionally from people who want to give me millions of dollars for no reason.

  9. I get loads of that claptrap in my spam box, but I have to skim through them because sometimes a genuine comment from a reader gets thrown in as well. Very annoying. Only way to get rid of it is to not allow Anon comments.

  10. I have had few spam blog mails recently - aren’t they funny though? - but a huge number of spam emails from ‘banks’ and ‘savings accounts’. They look almost genuine until you read them and the spelling mistakes and poor grammar jump out. Yet there are still people who fall for them otherwise they would surely not send them anymore?

  11. It took me a minute to catch on after reading that first spam comment. I've had them too, complimenting me on my research and great website (me!) on a silly, simple post like a grasshopper's nest. I would love, just once, to see the folks who write these comments. Wonder if they don't have anything better to do.


Thanks for stopping by and I'd love to hear what you think.
