No More Mister Nice Guy!


Oooh, doesn't Pat Boone look all masculine and sexy on that album cover? 

He looks like a cross between Patrick Duffy and a gay biker. 

Not that I know too many gay bikers......  just the ones i see while watching gay porn.  Not that i see alot of gay porn...... just the hundreds of DVDs that i have bought online that ship to my house in discrete brown wrappers.

I seem to have gotten onto a tangent of pure silliness.  Gay porn was NOT what i intended to talk about today.

No, I wanted to talk about the excessive amount of SPAM i have been getting in the comments lately.

Now, I've talked before about how I hate hate HATE sites that use that damn word verification thingy where i have to type "JHFUILG" or some other such crap before i can comment on a site.  It drives me absolutely batty.  Mostly because I usually cant tell if one of the letters is an L or an I or something like that, and i end up having to try it a boatload of times before i can leave my comment.  It drives me crazy.  In fact, back in the day, i even ranted about it.

So, i have been quite proud of the fact that i have been able to spare you all the horrors of having to type those nonsense words here and have been able to keep it that way for over half a decade.

But i may finally have to bite the bullet and enable word verification.  Check out the comments on the last few weeks of posts to see why.  For some reason, i have been getting blasted with spam every few hours, and its really pissing me off.

This happened a few years back, and then after a month or so it stopped, so I'm gonna wait a bit before i pull the trigger on word verification, but if it doesn't stop (or at least slow down), i am going to have to ask you all to enter in "KERFLUDDLE" or some such shit every time you want to tell me how much you want to bone me.

Sorry about the spam 'cause that really sucks. Hope you're joking about Pat Boone because I doubt that guy would even allow Photoshop to put an earring in his holier than thou ear. That is a skinny Sylvester Stallone isn't it???????

earl: yes. it does.

just keeping: I wish i WAS joking, but that is an actual Pat Boone album cover. The old kook decided to try his hand at some heavy mettle christian rock or some such garbage a few years back.

I hate word verfication too. I usually just abandon my comment when I see it. Wordpress is the worst, making them so you can't read them. And they say "Type the two words to prove you're not a robot" Neither of those clumps of letters are words.

I had fourteen comments on an old post a few weeks ago. FOURTEEN. So I quickly went to that post and sure enough, all comments were spam. Grrr! Well it seems now they've started commenting on my newer posts and it's infuriating the hell out of me. I also hate, hate HATE word verification but I'm seriously considering it now. Meh.

Has it ever dawned on you that all the spam might be the result of bots searching for keywords in your posts such as: Gay, Porn, Puntang and Love Muscle?????

Slyde said...

i have never said "love muscle"

note to self: tomorrow, post something about love muscles...

Ugh!!!!!!!! It got so bad on my blog for awhile that I was spending more time deleting spam than anything else. I can't remember how I finally solved the problem. Probably by practically never blogging. Nor do I remember if I still have a word verification thingy or not. :-0
