My regular readers know what a hard time I had with spam when I first started. No, not the typical barrage of spam you get from other people – I was spam! I couldn’t crawl out of the Akismet hole I must have inadvertently dug for myself. Well, one of the best serious history writers in Blogland, J. G. Burdette, took a swipe at spammers swarming her site today.
You should check it out if you don’t read her regularly. Then become a regular reader.
For those spammers who can’t spell, she included this poem in her comment box. Maybe that’s how I became a spammer in the first place – poor spelling. I had to look up raspberry the other day. I couldn’t even spell it right when WP told me it was wrong. After two tries, I gave up and googled it.
Did I just admit that I can’t spell?? Yikes, I’m getting much too comfortable with all of you. Are my clothes all still on? (Pat, pat, pat) Yep. I haven’t come that clean! Whew!
Eye halve a spelling chequer
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marques four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.
Eye strike a key and type a word
And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar write
It shows me strait a weigh.
As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite
Its rare lea ever wrong.
Eye have run this poem threw it
I am shore your pleased two no
Its letter perfect awl the weigh
My chequer tolled me sew.
I love to write about spam,. My husband hesitantly told me yesterday that my MAJOR fault is a short fuse. When my fuse blows with Spammers, I write. You can tell by the number of posts, that my fuse has sputtered into flame several times! 🙂 There were a few others that came up when I did a search of my website, but I think Spam was just a passing word.
So if you haven’t checked out her site already, CLICK HERE. (…and write your best spammy comment in her comment box. BE NICE – REMEMBER SHE’S MY FRIEND!!! See if she can tell a real spam from a fake one! Psssst, don’t tell her I sent you!) Shhhhh 🙂 Oops, she reads my blog.
Do you think she’ll notice? 🙂
Click LIKE if you hate SPAM! hahaha
