I do not like green eggs and spam

I do not like green eggs and spam,
I do not like them, Glenda I am.
I do not like them here or there,
I do not like them anywhere.

Spam comments on my blog have been so annoying lately. Since I have my comments sent to my e.mail, I see all of them and remove them right away. But it takes a lot of time. 

Is this happening at your site, as well?

  1. No, it's not. But you get much more traffic at your blog than I do. :+) Sorry about the spam.

  2. I was just going to say that I like Spam but not the kind of which you speak.
    And, lest you think I'm losing my culinary edge, let me explain. As a child, our next door neighbor (who had no children) would have me over for lunch occasionally. She always gave me Spam on white bread with mayo and sweet pickle relish. I loved it. And, she let me have a Dr. Pepper too. I haven't had a Spam sandwich since then. As for spam, I do occasionally get a random posting asking me to link my blog to a world-wide food site. I just delete it. I've also gotten a few blogs to pop up that I've never subscribed to. That is harder to figure out.

    Best,
    Bonnie

  3. Spam is a delicacy in Hawaii and I've learned to like it having hated it as a child in wartime! But the kind you speak of is no fun. We had the guestbook closed on our website for that reason. I have enjoyed catching up on your blogs. God bless, Eva

  4. I have same problem. I get all excited that I have 5 emails - then totally deflated that all are spam...but I fear that if I use the 'type this word' thingy no one will bother to comment at all. But I do have fond memories from childhood of 'Spam Fritters' !

  5. I like your little poem. I am having spam come in to my mobile/blogger platform, but not with Intense Debate. I agree. It's annoying.

  8. Like Rebecca I stopped allowing anonymous comments on my blog. Haven't had anymore spam since then. It's just so annoying.

  9. Glenda, at times, it seems there's a rash of spam so I go to comment moderation or...shudder...that thing were one has to peer at the screen and guess at the password and numbers. So, I do that for a while and then...viola!...when I go back to no moderation, etc. the spam has stopped.

  10. It's funny, I think blogspot does a pretty good job of filtering out spam. Those comments don't usually reach my actual post, but instead go into the spam folder. But there are a TON of spam comments in there!

  11. I'm thankful for comment moderation because some are getting past spam. Yikes, are they ever filthy!

  13. I have been lucky on this blog. But my old blog, which I haven't posted on in over a year, still gets multiple spam comments a day!

  14. Would some lovely person be kind enough to tell me how to close down the anonymous option for commenting, thank you.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Nope, no problems so far. maybe we should notify Blogger...

  16. I was getting spam daily as well, and it was horrible. I finally put the captcha stuff back on for the time being. I'm not a fan of it, buy like it better than spam! I have family members that do not have blogs and read mine. Do you know if I take off the Anon. Comments, can they still leave comments?

  17. I'm sorry, Glenda! I've gotten a few spam comments myself. The most annoying ones for me is when I subscribe to comments to other people's blogs, and THEY get spam comments and it comes to MY email. Blah. I'm going to try the no anonymous post option. Hmm...sounds like a plan! My favorite is when I get these vague comments in broken English about how great my blog is and a link to some site that sells shoes or pills or whatnot, lol!

    And by the way, green eggs would go very nicely with your color scheme here! :)

  18. Geesh, yes. Just go ahead and ask me about Russian brides or cigarettes.

  20. How annoying and exhausting to deal with the spam comments - I hope that it ends soon. I have not had trouble with it - and pray that I don't. Hope your next week will be better in that regard.

  21. I am laughing, every time I get a spam comment on my post about spam. :)

  22. I was getting TONS of it for a while. They I turned off the "anonymous" option for blog comments and they stopped immediately. I still review comments before I post, but I'm much happier not getting those infuriating spam comments every day. :)

  23. Spam should really be against the law. It's the most annoying thing!
