Spam, Spam, and More Spam...

Spam, Spam, and More Spam...
Spam, Spam and more spam...     I've never been a fan of SPAM. You know what I mean - the crap that comes in a can. I am even less of a fan of "the other SPAM" - the garbage that comes in your inbox or better yet; the rubbish left on the bottom of your posts.
     It seems as if here lately, the spammers are out in full force leaving their drivel strewn about, hither and thither in order to promote their self serving agendas or promote some idiotic tomfoolery.
     Many of us are busy and don't
have time to engage in such twaddle. I know I don't!
     Life is full of choices. Sure, I can leave it there,
letting the spammer get by with leaving their tell-tale mound of bunk on my
intellectual content,  I can delete it or report it.
     Personally, I would rather not have to make this choice at all. But as long as there are blogs, spammers will continue to deposit unwanted, unsolicited and uninvited baloney.
     Speaking of baloney, I'm getting hungry! I think I'll go the kitch and whip up a fried bologna sandwich…

Micheal - Like you, I'm not a fan of spam in a can or on my posts. I've been seeing this a lot lately - in fact, I could have gotten a great deal on True Religion Jeans, but I resisted and it wasn't easy!

I'm with you on the fried bologney sandwich and the spam. I don't understand why I can successfully block them on my wordpress blog but not here.

Don't care for Spam, whether in writing or in a can! But, I do like fried bologna, especially when acoompanied by some fried onions. Enjoy the sandwich!

I have been lucky but I only allow comments by members.  But, I will say that my soliciting calls have picked up ... way high! 

And, I have loved "the other SPAM".

Michael,

Maybe we should all coordinate and fire a massive spam attach on their links ; )

Okay , maybe not but it would be fun.

Be careful! Spam will raise your blood pressure since it is filled with artificial and unnecessary ingredients! :)

Staying diligent to the cause helps. I have my bouts with spam as well and like to  think that sweeping out spammers discourages them from bothering me further...

I don't know what's going on, but it definitely appears to be SPAM season.

I like Spam and Bologna on a grill cheese sandwich. As far as on my blogs that is another story. Seems they could find something more productive to do with their time then to leave SPAM NONSENSE on folks blogs.

Michael,

You raised a can of worms that nobody likes - SPAM and it's becoming more frequent. As soon as I notice, I report it but I shouldn't have to police it, nobody does.

I haven't thought about a fried bologna sandwich in years! I hope you enjoyed your sandwich.

Michael- I have never had a fried bologna sandwich but it sounds good. I would have to have lots of mustard, though!

Hi Michael, Thanks to Judi's re-blog I saw this post.  I mentioned you in my recent post inspired by this post.

Thanks for the inspiration of humor out of this "spam" stuff.

Have a good holiday weekend.

I keep telling Debe Maxwell who has mentioned she needs a new purse, to find them HERE ON THE RAIN!  GREAT DEALS . . . HA HA HA.  The only reason I like SPAM is the extra 10 pts. a pop for reporting it.  I racked in a ton of points this week!!
