    When I’m feeling down and no one likes a post I’ve written well enough to comment, then I cheer myself right up by reading over the  constant comments I get from my faithful followers, …my spammers.  It’s true, they love me,….and in so many ways.

    Here is a sampling once I peeked at what they were saying in this spam…

    So now, I love words, but have never been so tongue tied when having to write personal words on a greeting card. But, I’m taking an example from my spammers to say:

    “Thank you to all my commenters. I’m delighted each time you do! You add info, make me laugh, make me think and even correct my mistakes (oops!). Most of all you share your thoughts and encouragement. Thank you!”

      I only had two recent spam comments. What am I doing wrong?

      I find when I get a lot of comments on a post the spammers really kick into high gear…but my spam blocker is so good I only see a few…

      These are the ones from today that I glanced at this morning. What I find amusing is the wording……for a few seconds,… before deleting permanently the spam that Akismet trashes.

      Sue, this is hilarious and I thought spam would be rather unpleasant to read. This is very entertaining 🙂

      We had a breakdown in our system this week (modem decided to DIE!) and so were off-line for a couple of days until our son was able to assist my husband. I’m trying to catch up on any posts I missed. It’s incredible how quickly one falls behind when unable to access the internet daily!

      Hope you have a lovely weekend 🙂

      Hugs,

      Des xoxo

      Me too. I don’t get spam. ????????

      Just a joke, Kerry, and a thank you! I do get spam on wordpress and when I took a look at it, it just struck me funny…my humor is odd, I guess!

      If it weren’t for Akismet blog comments would be totally unreadable with all the spam wouldn’t it? One category that I do not enjoy are the insulting spammers. They startle me and get my attention, but really, is anyone going to follow their link to buy their product?

      (And a gorgeous poppy “butterfly” by the way!)

      Really, who thinks up the stuff they “comment”. Lost in translation, I think.
      That poppy was an interesting find in the garden one morning and makes a nice ‘logo’ and avatar. 🙂
