Word Verification

If this crap continues, I shall be putting word verification back on. Under my post about Wine o'clock around the fire, some idiot put absolute screeds of rubbish...it wasn't biblical. I'm not sure what it was, but from the little I read, it seemed to be threatening me with all sorts of peculiar stuff. To be quite honest, I think the person(s) who wrote it are somewhat scrambled in the head.

Anyway, what I'm getting at is that I will post what I like on my blog, I will live my life how I want and if I'm not hurting anyone, then I have a clear conscience. If some idiot doesn't like what I put up in a post, then don't read the bloody thing...simple.

What a bummer!
Every once in awhile I think about taking word verification off and then I hear stories like yours.
I'd rather have 0 commenters than put up with rubbish from kooks or worse.

Hi Robyn I put word back for the same reason. Theres Idiots everywere trying to hurt other poeple with words , if you saw the so called idiot face to face He/She.would be week as water..I agree its your blog if they dont like what they see they dont have to read it. its like turning the tv. off if you dont like the program... Take care ....

You go girl!

I bet they have such a poorly deprived life that they need to such the lifeblood out of everyone else's goodness.

Don't let them effect you Robyn or they have won half the battle.

Blogger should make it harder for people like that to comment instead of just word verification. There should be some type of security for us to ensure we know exactly who is really commenting.

Have a great day.

That sucks Robyn. I used to get spam from fanatical religious kooks too, plus a lot of spam link plug-ins, that's why I moderate my comments now. It sucks but I don't want to give them the satisfaction of airing their garbage. I'm sure it was just an isolated event, probably just a troll or something. The internet is full of crazies eh? Who cares Blog on!

Ya, you tell 'em girl! lol Don't you just love those people that have nothing better to do than spam our blogs. As you say, if they don't like what they see or read, there's that little x at the top right corner of the page they can click on. I really don't know what they don't understand about a blog being our own and we can write what we want on it...I could show a picture of my tush if I wanted to..well I wouldn't but you know what I mean! lol Have a great weekend dear friend. xoxo

Hahaha ! you also got this km long crap ?? I only read a little and deleted it immediately (fortunately I noticed it very quick) what bothered me the most wasn't the crazy guy or the ridiculous content, but the space it took !!! and then he put it in another of my blogs. It doesn't happen often so I decided to laugh about it and showed it to Mr.Gattino telling him what a nice and long comment I got, he complemented me for it, he hadn't read anything of course hehehe !

I just delete them when ever i get them.
They are just a fact of life but i must say that t hey are not as bad as they used to be.
I know blogger has been doing their best to block spam because i know I was blocked as spam so that must mean something LOL
