Why spammers leave gibberish-laden comments

Ever wondered why spammers leave those gibberish-laden comments filled with links, keywords, and chicken-scratch idiocies on your blog?

Here’s the clearest explanation (exspamation?) I’ve found yet and it makes perfect sense once you think about it.

Now WordPress is The Best at keeping out spammers, agreed, yet most of my blogs are hosted on Blogger, aka Blogspot. Can Comment Moderation be far behind? Spammers count on our not bothering to moderate the ‘comments’ they leave on older posts, so constant comment vigilance is a necessity.

Yet even here on WP spams occasionally get through filters so you WordPressers out there may find useful the above-linked article which I shall now file in your ‘In Case You Didn’t Know’ category!

Oxalis Time in Georgia: May 2009

Awww! One of my offspring has written a brief photo journal piece about being at my house and nostalgia from her childhood days on her blog Spring Tree Road if you’d care for a spring *flowered peek!

*oxalis blooming pink although the clumps are mixed with smidges of white blossoms, too. Charming little lads ‘n’ lassies are they.

Bush Doctrine natal chart 2002

If tech gremlins agree I’m about to publish the natal chart of the Bush Doctrine, Sept 17, 2002.

Publishing it as a Page in the sidebar will make it easier for me to return when I have time (because today I don’t) and update the chart with notes, details, whatever. But you will see that the chart is, as usual, marked with chicken scratch so there are some details for you if the image is enlarged for better viewing.

Presidents do tend to have their “Doctrines” but the Bush regime’s Doctrine is what we’re experiencing the results of now and you know how things are going in America…we’ll be fortunate if we make it in shreds and tatters by Inauguration Day 2009!

Remember after the terror twins, Bush-Cheney, muscled their way into the backdoor of the White House, many people (mostly bloggers–yayyy bloggers!) were saying that the emperor had no clothes?

He didn’t. Until the attacks of 9/11 changed the landscape of America–and the fortunes of the Bush administration.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
