Spamalot!


I have been unjustly branded a criminal.

But I’ve been framed, I tells ya!

And I think I might need the help of you fine upstanding citizens to help clear my good name.

The other day, I posted on Earl’s site.  It was one of my typically witty and insightful comments.  You know, just like ALL of my comments always are.  I think it had to do with pee-pees.

Anyway, after I commented, I saw that my comment was, in fact, attached to the post.

The next day, however, I noticed that my comment was gone.  Figuring that the little prick was fucking with me and deleted it, I commented again.  Later that day, I noticed that the new comment was gone, too.

Over the course of the week, I commented a few more times on his blog, but always noticed that the comments were gone the next day.  Again, I really didn’t think too much of it… I just thought his naturaly childish and immature nature was making him screw with me.

But then yesterday, I posted on another of your fine blogs, only to notice later in the day that my comment was no longer THERE, either.

So, I finally broke down and forced myself to actually speak with Earl.  He’s usually much easier to stomach if you can communicate with him thru email, rather than on the phone, but I figured this demanded more personal action. 

After swearing to me that he never saw any of my comments, I asked him to check his spam folder.  Sure enough, all of my comments were there.

So, I’m guessing, all of my comments that I have left on ANY of your blogs that use Blogger are in YOUR spam folders, too.

See?  I haven’t forgotten about you… I’ve just been branded a criminal by The Man.

So, my questions to all you sexy people out there…..

A)     How the fuck did I get branded as a spammer?  I haven’t sent anyone a Viagra email in weeks!

B)      How do I get UN-branded?  I Googled it and it sounds like if enough blogs check their spam folder and “mark my comment as not spam” then the system learns that I am not a spammer.  Earl tried that last night and I am STILL public enemy # 1.

C)      Has this ever happened to anyone else out there?  I’d hate to think that my comments are so vile and unkempt that I am the FIRST blogger that the system has deemed unworthy enough to have the privilege of leaving a comment.

So, that’s my pickle.  Can anyone out there give me any assistance?

Help me, Obi Wan Kanobi… you’re my only hope……

Let me go check my spam folder.

Be right back....

Nope. Nothing there. I guess you only left that one comment in the past year.

*cries into pillow*

zibbs: don't blame me for my lack of posting on your site.. blame your popularity!

Your blog has achieved a level of greatness such that you are now blocked here from work. You're just about the only blog i read now that i cant get here anymore...

you should feel very proud...

Heff said...

Nah, all of my comments are worthwhile, and considered VALUABLE, LMAO !

Bruce Johnson said...

You are talking about this as if it were a 'bad' thing. I mean really, consider it.

I don't see a 'spam folder' option in Google Reader, but I will check. I know I didn't label you as such (although I have thought about once or twice).

Slyde said...

heff: see thats what i mean! If YOU'RE comments arent spam......!

Bruce: i dont think its in google reader, i think its actually in blogger, under the tab where you can see comments. i know ive got a boatload of comments in my spam folder, all legitimate spam crap...

Maybe you SMELL like Spam?

Slyde said...

honey, i thought we had something... don't you turn on me, too...

Annabelle Archer said...

PS - You're not black marked on my blog.

Hire me to do what exactly? And how are the benifits, babies need insurance.

Choleesa said...

HA!! after much searching, I finally found MY spam folder, and alas, you were there, along with another blogger, who I absolutely love!! You have been marked as not spam, and thanks for informing me that there even WAS a spam folder.

B.E. Earl said...

Looks like it has been fixed. I may regret that...

Slyde said...

anna: i can promise you that you will most assuredly enjoy the benefits....

chol: thats awesome, thanks! Your blog was actually the tipping point that made me realize that i was having a problem... i didnt think that YOU would every fuck with me like Earl would...

earl: yeah, i noticed that. maybe once you marked me as NOT spam, that it took a day for their system to recognize it.

Not surprised, Spammy! However, you're showing up on my blog/ email just fine.
I think.

how do i mark you as spam? i need to do that

markd60 said...

That happened to me once, years ago, before bloggers spam detection system started.
I had to log in and fill out a word verification with every click of the mouse.
I contacted blogger and they sorted it pretty quickly.
Good luck!

Slyde said...

sybil: you THINK? i need to KNOW, dammit! get your shit straight!

abes: i marked you as spam years ago...

mark: hopefully it wont come to that. it seems that a few people have marked me as 'not spam' and i seem to be back to normal now.. i need to keep looking at it.

My attitude is that if you push me towards something
that you think is a weakness, then I will turn that perceived weakness into a strength. See the link below
