dangum spammers

well, boo guys - i can't tell you how much i dislike captivas and now i have to go back to using one since i'm suddenly getting bombarded with spam.  idiot people - those and the people that send viruses are just such losers really.  *sigh*  i apologize - i had really streamlined the place because i wanted the blog to be quick and easy to navigate and read.  i thought about not allowing anonymous comments - but there are some people that come from wordpress or other venues so i didn't want not to hear from them.

so, this weekend....valentine's day huh?  yeah.  that's about all i have to say about that.  if only i could convince the love of my life to move to montgomery and stop calling me at 2:30 in the morning.  my day could be sooo much the better.  *laugh*  i will  rather focus on the fact that it's the last week of carnival and fat tuesday is coming one week from tomorrow.  you know what that means?  40 days of lent.  you know that means????? it's 47 days until good friday - one of the recognized signs of spring.  here in the south, good friday is the first day of planting for the veggie garden!  spring...yes, spring.

hope that cheers you up.

  3. I had an issue too. I started using comment approval, but it was such a pain. Why can't all people just be good...

  4. yep, spammers are what keep me having the crazy words to type into my comments too. I just leave it with approval status, as much of a pain as it is. Been a while since I got hit but the minute I let things get loose again... BAM. Hang in there,.. oh, re: the two a.m. phone calls.... I'd have a talk with that boy! haha! :)

  6. What is Valentines Day? Oh that's right just another. A day were single people are made to feel even more unloved.

    Nothing against Valentines day but there will be not cards, or flowers, or hug, chocolates or deep felt I love you's headed my way.

    Nice timetable for the arrival of Spring. Can't wait! We're getting another 5-8 inches today on top of the 18 we already have. Bleh.

  9. The WV seems to help with spammers. Up here, we don't plant until just before Mother's Day. Well, you can put in peas, of course and hope it snows on them once or twice. Peas are happy that way.

  11. I have turned my WV on and off. Each time I've had it off...I get loaded with spam comments. I hate them! So once again I turned it back on and will leave it on.
    2 a.m. phone calls huh? Have you been holding out on us?????

  12. Spamming is SO annoying! The funny ones though are the ones I get in my email junk.

    "Hi, I'm Spanitam (whatever). I need help fleeing from my country and my abusive Uncle. All you need to do is send me your back account number."

    Right, so that my life can be totally shitty too? No thanks!

  17. Boo spammers, yay spring! I hate using the stupid word verification on my blogs, but I'm sick of chinese porn or whatever it is that is attacking my blogs.

  18. so far i haven't gotten much spam, but i don't get more than 10 comments a post anyway.
    spring will be here before you know it. hang it there.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I suppose that there is one nice part of not having a ton of followers, almost no spam for me. Sucks to have to put on Captchas but we're here anyway!

    2am calls sound interesting. :)

    Spring would be really lovely right about now. Unfortunately, I live in a place that may be summer in March or may snow in July if it's an odd year (I've seen both of these in the last 7 years). There's no real knowing spring is here until it is. Boo.

  20. Yay for Spring! Boo for spammers!

  21. I had to disable anonymous comments a few weeks ago due to spam, in order not to have to resort to the letters/numbers thing. I didn't realize that meant the folks from other formats couldn't comment..

  23. Whoa good friday already!? I can't believe it! Gee the year's going fast.

    Re: the spammers - you should be so lucky! Haha I think only popular blogs get them, I've been bypassed!

  24. okay... I think I am finally ready for spring, but not summer:)

  25. The internet is both a blessing and a curse. You'd think people have more to do than be destructive for no reason.

  26. Lovely picture- you know, I live right here with my valentine- and I still can't get into it- I think I am cynical- we really feel like we show our love everyday- do we need valentines day to underscore it? oh well- the chocolate is fun, the kids love making and receiving cards- so it all works out. We just decided nearly a decade ago to not place expectations on ourselves to do anything extravagant for V-Day- just daily hugs, cuddles and kisses and I am good :)

  27. Gorgeous photo Char! Oh I know what you mean about those spammers--and the funny thing, do they really think anybody's going to buy these things by leaving them in the comments? 2 am calls sound suspiciously valentine-like...:)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yay!!! Spring! I even made a spring apron the other day. Although, weirdly enough, I'm actually enjoying winter. Which is new.

    And btw...I was thinking of doing more etsying and promoting come spring...found socialmention.com which led me to your link of crafts/artists. That really made me smile. : ) Thank you so much for thinking enough of my creativity to include me in that list. You're awesome.

    And don't worry...I don't mind the captiva stuff or whatever it's called.

  29. those stupid spammers! i wish they would just get a life. their success rate must be .00000001% and they keep on with their stupid activities! grrr!

  30. Spammers are the worst! Ben can talk about this subject for the rest of the day. It fires him up. Being in IT, he is all for cleaning it up and making it spam free. That's in our fantasy world.
    I love your photos Char. You are so very clever and congratulations on being part of Blog It Forward. I saw your blog in the list. Only the best blogs are on it. You deserve it. :)
