Mom's Monday Rant

Well, as we all know it is MONDAY and that is bad enough.

The other thing I have been plagued with for a loooooooooong time - and some of you too, no doubt, is SPAM - not the Bert kind but those comments.  We at Team Beaglebratz have not been bothered with those hateful comments that some of you have.  Oh, before I go much further I do want to say that our spam filter is on and that is where it ALL goes.
THAT'S WHERE IT STOPS TOO.  I don't read it except enough to see that it does NOT pertain to anything any of our blog posts is about.  I am NOT going to buy medication online - at least not the kind you are trying to get me to buy.  I am not interested in body building or using a medication-induced quik weight loss program.  You want Team Beaglebratz to comment on your blog but we are NOT wasting our time to comment on your ZXYAXXP blog - not when we can't even read what we are commenting on and it is not just a blog in a foreign language - it is something we can tell there is nothing there that would make the least bit of sense - in any language.  All of these spam "comments" are left by ANONYMOUS.  I check our spam folder at least once a day if I can get to it - usually it ends up being at least 3 or 4 times a day.  I make sure there are no true comments which pertain to anything we have ever posted or in some way are related to our content.  Once that determination is made - ANYTHING LEFT IN OUR SPAM FOLDER IS DELETED - never to be seen again - at least not those particular comments.  Quite often, those spam comments - get deleted in less than 6 - 8 hours after they are left, somethimes they don't even last that long.

Now then, I have to go off to work - making an honest living and not by leaving comments that waste other bloggers time - that's what it is - a waste of MY time and YOURS.  Instead of leaving comments that are totally ridiculous and a waste of one's life - why don't you, the spammer, go out and get a REAL job.

Okay - been wanting to say that for a long time- now it is said so I don't have to waste any more of MY time.

Too right. Those spammers are too annoying. We skim read them too and then delete which can be quite enjoyable sometimes. Delete delete delete. Why do they waste their time?Have a lovely Monday.
Best wishes Molly

Yes...very well said! Our blog doesn't get that many spam comments but our email is a different story. It's so nice of them to leave an "Unsubscribe" buttom, but how do you "Unsubscribe" when you never "Subscribed" in the first place. What a pain in the****!

Hope Shiloh is feeling better today!

Bad spammers. You tell 'em.

Wow! I hope none of those spammers ever knock on your door. Your mom sounds MAD. We get those comments too, but mercifully blogger puts them right in the spam bucket for us.

What makes me wonder is who would ever actually reply?
