“Spam is a waste of the receivers’ time, and, a waste of the sender’s optimism.”
WHEN – When you don’t want to get out of bed, but you need something to do when you’re sitting there.
At 07:15 AM my bedroom was lamp-lit and cosy, I’d been awake for just over an hour. The howling wind, combined with the heavy rain that was bouncing off my window made me reluctant to leave my warm and comfortable bed, so I crawled over it and poured a second mug of coffee.
I’d already checked my WP e-mail account, and my Reader, I’d made my comments, and I’d clicked Like. I’d also browsed Houzz and viewed those grand houses with their stunning makeovers.
I picked up my iPad again – How interesting that even at this hour my newly published scheduled post had received twenty visitors from India!
The penny soon dropped, and I logged into the WP Dashboard and checked the Spam folder.
I was tempted to bulk delete, but instead, just in case one had landed there by mistake, I began to read the comments. I found two genuine, and a hundred or so spam comments. One genuine comment included a Bible reference but not in a negative way, however, it left me wondering why the blogger felt the need to include it.
Anyway, looking back at the spam comments, and because I had nothing better to do, I snipped a few, cut to the chase and this is what they had to say – over and over!
* Viagra ships overnight.
* Wanna state that this is very beneficial.
* Something genuinely interesting about you.
* Nice factors in options also.
* Look what we contain on the side of you!
* And we want extra!
Does anyone ever take up these offers?
It’s difficult to feel piqued about the amount of Spam in the folder, it’s simply a fact of everyday life, I’m just grateful that WP remove it before it hits our pages.
