Spam Protection

Hello everyone - a brief post to let you know that I'm going to enable 'Comment Moderation' on the blog because of some recent comments in Japanese! I hope I'm not maligning a very keen japanese poet : ) but I don't think so. And it takes me some time to delete them all too.

This means that when you comment it won't appear straight away, but I'll act as promptly as I can to publish them.

Thanks for your understanding. I dislike constraints but sometimes they're inevitable.

I keep getting Japanese comments, too. I send them to my daughter who's studying Japanese and she tells me very definitely they're spam! She hasn't felt able to tell me exactly what they say .... ominous!

Gosh, many of us in the States, that have blog sites, still get those odd Japanese comments slip through the spam guards. Perhaps somewhere in the mysterious Orient, there are nefarious thugs who simply go out there in Cyberness and scatter their commercial messages willy nilly. Not quite as bad as the telemarketers who interrupt dinner, but nearly.

I've plugged some of those into
Babelfish. They don't seem to make sense in either Japanese or Chinese.
Definite spam.

I have a poem about spam (slighty angry in tone)

Unwanted

I don't want your wee blue pills
A pharmacy to cure my ills
I don't need a Russian wife
Nor cunning plan to fix my life

I don't need you to slash my bills
Or news of dodgy African wills
I don't need your 'get rich' schemes
In order to fulfill my dreams

I don't need your Rolex fake
Or those job offers that you make
I don't need your online drugs
I bet your software's full of bugs

I don't accept your virus threat
or plans to get me out of debt
I don't care if she's really hot
I don't need any thing you've got

What would really make my day
Is if you'd up and go away
I'd like to be left as I am
Without a daily dose of spam

Yep, the array of spam invitations is amazing! Euro-Lottery Winner is a regular one for me!
