Some Blog Business and a Tiny Rant

Hi Everybody.  I have some blog business to discuss with you.  You know how commenting on my blog is easy as pie with no word verification or anything?  Isn't that nice?  Well, I have to change it.  I thought I could put up with the spam in order to make commenting so hassle free, but I am sick of it.  I get an email every time I get a comment and lately most of my emails are because of spam comments on the blog, so I'm afraid I am going to have to put the word verification thingy back up.

I know, it's a pain in the ass, but I don't want any more ridiculously phony comments from who I suspect are non-English-speakers, that have nothing to do with the post and everything to do with the link to the online casino they are trying to get people to visit. ("Your blog are best I read!  Please sent a link!) I also am pretty sure I don't need a bigger penis, discounts on Viagra, or to learn how to unlock an iPhone 4, so, there you have it.  Word verification is re-activated.

I worked today in my favorite third grade class and at lunch I was talking with another sub who said she works pretty much full-time as a sub, but also has a job as a cashier at a grocery store for the money and benefits.   She makes more in a 6 hour shift swiping groceries over a scanner than she does teaching an eight hour day at a school, not to mention health and dental benefits that she says pays 80% of her health and dental costs.  WTF?  Seriously,  What.  The.  Fuck?


  1. This only means I'll have more words to pick from for my New Word Wednesdays!

  2. luckily, i've never had a problem with spam. not even spammers are interested in my shit.

  3. I don't understand the ways of spam. I get it on old posts, for some reason.

  4. This comment has been removed by the author.

  5. So, let's say I now contact you, via this blog, with a LEGITIMATE offer to help get my Nigerian prince released from his most traitorous and illegal imprisonment, so that he might access his vast fortunes held in exile?

    Are you saying you're now going to make it harder for loyalists like us to free Prince M'butu through the selfish use of Captcha, even if by doing so you make it harder for us to share his untold wealth with you and anyone else who assists us in our most noble and honorable work?

    As always, we are looking forward to doing this business with you and solicit your confidentiality in this transaction. I will send you detailed information of this pending project when I have heard from you.

    Warm regards,
    (for Dr. Clement Okon, Nigerian Department of Interior)

  6. Many people are doing spam in the comments just for getting the back link but this is not true criteria they must write even better about the log and you do not have to worry about the mails. As these will be continues until you not start spam checker


I would love your comments.
