A major, major, irritant with me!
I suppose in the world we live in it is to be expected, although I am not talking about the meat (I am incidentally one of those wierd people who loves spam food, unlike many others), I am talking about the electronic garbage variety.
It is bad enough having a spam filter on e-mail without all of this, but it never occured to me (although I am not surprised) to get a whole load on the comments pages on my blog!
Some are amusing, some are irritating, and some are downright insensitive. I got two after a very serious piece on my blog that left me wondering if any member of the armed services, or a war correspondent has a blog, with the typical entry being:
Last Tuesday we did another raid on the town of *****. To describe the horrors on paper or here, on this blog, would not adaquetly describe the horrors of that day. Two of my best friends were blown up, bodies of women and children littered the road, houses were burned. We were lucky to escape with our lives.
I am sorry, I cannot write any more at this time..
Followed by an entry on the comments page:
Hi there, I love your blog, maybe you want to have a look at mine, 'Scandanavian Log Fisheries', where you can buy haddock for just Three dollars a-piece! We are based in Caineriver County, Alabama
I do delete spam messages on my blog out of principle, and I know I am not the only one suffering, but to those who do spam, and are bothering to read this!
Give me a break. I am not interested, I check my blog on a very regular basis and I delete spam messages, so hardly anyone else will read them!
