J.G. Burdette Scares Spammers Silly

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

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. For thirty-five years, I lived in the most beautiful area in Central Valley of California in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains minutes from the Sequoia National Park. As a child I moved from Indiana to Oregon. With my first husband I moved from Oregon to Colorado to California. Every time we moved, it hurt so much to leave friends. I never wanted to move again. After Mark passed, I married again. I told Vince that I could never budge from my roots in California. He said he loved the high desert. I don't think he ever thought he would realize his dream. In November, 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.

  1. I was having trouble with spam on my website and have had a few on my blog. Not sure how to deal with it but it’s advised to change passwords frequently and to be sure they have upper and lower case letters, some numbers and a symbol (!$% sort of thing).


    1. I haven’t had any major trouble since WP shut me down, and I wrote to them and they turned me back on again. That was heartbreaking! Seriously! But the end result is that I barely get spam, and I’m not spam anymore! I just got a premium theme, and upgraded, so I’ll see how that goes. I haven’t tried changing passwords frequently. That would be the end of me!


  2. Where do I start MVBF Marsha. I like your new upgraded theme and all the rabbits and cat chasing it’s tail. Oh no !! Has that escaped as well !! ?? !!
    Spam. I had one the other day that scrolled down for ever. I was going to copy/paste it here but I didn’t want to suffocate the rabbits. See. I’m a nice guy !!
    Eye luv de powem hand yore poest. Walf exohex 😀


    1. Thanks for small favors!!! No spam in my box! Haha. I like the poem, but u have to thank JG for that one! I cut and pasted!!! Is that stealing???? Ooo, Ralph watch out! You almost stepped on two rabbits! Whew! That was close! The cat bites if you hurt the bunnies! Fair warning!


      1. *stepping carefully over rabbits* YES !! It is stealing MVBF Marsha. !!! I am going to have to put you in hand cuffs, do a complete body search for your cut & paste weapon, give you a good tickling off ….. (or is it ticking off?) and send you back to California.

        Deputy Sheriff Ralph 😉 hehe !!


        1. Haha! A hacking Sheriff Ralph! Do you have special hacking gloves? So you like my new digs??? I even have live help, and my very own domain!!! It’s my domain and I can cut and paste if I want to. I can probably even post video in comment boxes. Hmmm that gives me an idea…


        1. Sheriff Ralph, you are easily bribed. Let me think… what video shall I post on Bluefishway? hmmmm… What’s tickling me???? Definitely not “I Shot the Sheriff, But I Did Not Shoot the Deputy.” How about this one?


  3. I’m ffaammmooooouuuuussssssssssss! Thank you, Marsha, for my small moment in the limelight. 😉

    You know how a lot of this spam is just a bunch of gibberish? This was concerning an entirely different matter but an acquaintance explained such typers as playing patty cake with the keyboard. I thought I’d die laughing. I know, I know, it isn’t nice to make fun of spammers. 😉

    Off to read your other spam posts!


  4. Spam .. I don’t know a much about … but I have got a couple this week .. into my notifications for some reason. Don’t understand what the fun is with … annoying people … with “shit” like spams. Have to empty my folder now – a while ago. *smile


      1. How where you able to fix that … ????? Know very little about spam .. know it’s just automatic sent emails … terrible, people should get a job instead of sitting making life more difficult for others.


  5. Poor grammar, poor spelling, and links are sure signs of spam. I’ve been inundated by spam in Chinese or some such language recently. It hit seriously last Wednesday and Thursday but seems to have slowed down to nothing over the past 12 hours or so.


    1. I know. It comes in spurts. I had nothing for weeks, then yesterday I looked, and I had 43. A couple of them were pretty good, and I kept them to decide later if I want to throw them away. I still am not sure what to do with pingbacks that show up there.
