To Mark as Spam, Delete OR Edit?

March 4, 2009

That is the question!!

I have always believed in Free Speech and all that goes with it but sometimes I think people take Free Speech just too far! They use it strictly for their own benefit and come what may to the rest of civilization…Especially when it comes to the Internet and Spammers!

Today I am specifically talking about spam comments…you know the ones I’m sure!

Someone leaves you a very nice comment, telling you what a wonderful post you’ve made or some such non-sense and how they enjoyed it so much and in the back of your mind you’re thinking: “Now I know it wasn’t That good”!  And those oh, so, hated spammers, do it in hopes that you will be so ignorant that you don’t know you are being spammed because at the beginning or end of their comment where their name is you can click on the link and it takes everyone to a link from ClickBank or some other affiliate program trying to sell you some garbage!

Personally I can not stand spammers or anyone that even Tries to spam my work and even worse to think I am a complete ignoramus that I don’t know what is going on!

So then I have to take time out of my day and decide what to do with these people. Do I Edit the comment, which I truly hate doing Because I believe in Free Speech, but I figure in this case that they have such little regard for me and my work then why not?

Or to Delete the comment, forget about it and go on about my day like nothing has ever happened, which wouldn’t take much of my valuable time.

Or, mark the comment as SPAM and be rid of the anti-social’s for good, Until they send another comment under yet another e-mail address!

Well normally I will not mark them as SPAM, because then no one would be the wiser as to who these anti-social individual’s are and I generally don’t delete them either, (unless they are very vulgar), because then they can come back and do it to me time and time again, And then I would also be Denying them their Freedom of Speech…

So I chose to Edit the comments! After all, I feel that if They can have Their Freedom of Speech then so can I!

Now don’t take this the wrong way, when I Edit the comments I leave all of the sweet, wonderful part of the comment that they have made…so I am not denying them their Freedom of Speech, I mean after all, if someone thinks I am Fantastic, Great, A Wonderful Blogger etc. then who am I to deny them from telling the World how Great they think I am? But when I Edit a comment, I Only remove the referral links that they have Accidentally left on my blogs and I am only helping them out by removing them as I am Sure it was an honest mistake!

And after Editing the comment I will come to the said Spammed blog and write an entire post…just for them, leaving their name and e-mail addresses and I will even go so far as to put their e-mail addresses in the tags…just in case someone doesn’t feel like reading the entire post!

So this post is especially for Stephanie, she wrote a comment to me on my post entitled: And The Winner Is…! in which she left a referral link from ClickBank to some sort of Panic Away relief or some such garbage and I have removed the link from her comment so no one has to worry about clicking on it and if you have already clicked on it I would suggest you going to your browsers cookies and removing it.

So for all of my great blogging buddies out there, be on the lookout for a comment left by:

Stephanie

and Stephanie’s e-mail address is:

stephanie@dadumail.com

Or at least that is the e-mail address that I have listed for her, I don’t know for sure, but she has already taken enough of my time today for her foolishness and much hated Spamming!

I have no idea if Stephanie will ever get back here and read this or if she has moved on to someone else that she considers to be her next sucker, but hey Steph, this one’s for you and sorry if you are upset by the post, (NOT!), but I am only exercising My Freedom Of Speech, just the same as you saw fit to do on this exact same blog!

That’s all for me today, hope to see all of you NON-SPAMMERS back again soon and remember…Shhhhhhhh! Keep it under your hat and…Don’t Tell a Soul! (Well, in this case, tell everyone you know)!!

And The Winner Is…!

Christmas Party/Dinner Egg Nog

December 20, 2008

If you’re planning on having a Christmas party or hosting the traditional holiday dinner this year then you may wish to add this Egg Nog to the menu.

I must caution you that it does contain a certain amount of alcohol but if you prefer the non-alcoholic egg nog then the amount of alcoholic called for in the recipe can be substituted using the same amount of milk, cream, or? Use your imagination and you will come up with a very personalized, “secret recipe” that no one else can duplicate…unless of course you give them the recipe!

Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) experimenter Eliot Spindel has been killing infant monkeys in nicotine studies for 24 years. But that’s not enough for him–Spindel has a ticket to ride the federally-funded gravy train and continue these needless experiments until 2012. Please Take Action to urge OHSU and National Institutes of Health (NIH) officials to end funding for Spindel’s experiments, and to redirect tax dollars into useful efforts to help people stop smoking and to keep young people from ever starting

Cruel is the only way to describe the actual experiments Spindel conducts on female monkeys who are impregnated and subjected to multiple surgeries to implant nicotine pumps in their backs. The monkeys endure multiple surgeries as the pumps must be changed up to five times during their pregnancies. Steady doses of nicotine are delivered to the pregnant monkeys and their babies are cut out of their wombs at various stages of development in order to dissect their lungs.

about Presidential history?

I came across this Presidential History Quiz yesterday and since I was still in the “election day” state of mind thought I would take it to see just how much I remembered from my school days.

As it turned out I did successfully complete it but in doing so remembered just how long ago it has been since I’ve been sitting in history class, (too long almost to remember), as it was not as easy as I thought it would be!!

So I thought that since all of my wonderful readers are so much smarter than I am that you would like to test your brains and see how long it takes you to get to the end of it!

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to finish the quiz in less time than it took me, (shouldn’t be too difficult)!!

Good Luck!
