Spam Blocker

The new spam blocker that Google Blogger has instituted is awesome. So far in the short time it has been in operation, it has blocked nearly 100 pieces of Spam.

I am telling you readers this just in case some comment you make disappears unexpectedly. If it does, please alert us and we will try to find it. If we can't, we apologize in advance, as the attempts to spam us are endless and we may not always find your legitimate comment. We will certainly try if you give us a heads up. Meanwhile, be grateful that you don't have to find out where you can find sexy girls in Amsterdam or get Viagra on line, etc., I guess.

Does that mean we will no longer have to be exposed to a steady stream of repetitive babble from ...oh, i dunno.....say some random poster?

New Guy

Is the challenge having to think proving too difficult for you?

Glass Houses Liberal POv Glass Houses resist the urge to throw rocks!

Why do you think it is you to which New Guy was referring, Liberalproverbs18:2? Are you finally admitting to your tactics or did you have an epiphany?

NewGuy said...

Actually Guy....that may be the first time that he was right!

My rebuttal to Liberalproverbs18:2 and Jack appeared briefly on the Quantitative Easing Explained thread and then disappeared.

Good luck finding it, but it really does not matter as talking with these two is like talking to a rock, except the rock is more capable of understanding.

Rockefeller (D) speaks for everyone in the entire USA. He can only do his job if the peasants see and hear exactly what he wants them to see and hear from exactly who he wants to tell them and show them.

ignorance is bliss

There are sexy girls in Amsterdam on every corner (nearly).

Shame it doesn't work on the "canned spam" that LPOV puts out.

Jack said...

Not sure why my comment this afternoon has been removed. Too bad.

Spam blocker isn't working very good. I still see a lot of posts from libby

Jack "Not sure why my comment this afternoon has been removed. Too bad."

Checked all spam and don't find anything of yours blocked. Do you want to either try again, or give me a few opening sentences and I will check again?

Jack said...

No worries. Thanks for looking.

guy faulkes said...

My post jsut disappeared again from the same thread. Apparently the spam blocker does not like me. Does liberalproverbs18:2 have something to do with it?

Blogger said...

Guy, There was nothing from you in the spam folder that was no posted except perhaps a short one fussing that Jack used the same tactics as LIB. Was that it?

Jack said...

The blocker has kicked away my most recent post. Commentary on Plan A vs Plan B.

guy faulkes said...

This spam blocker is getting aggravating. I posted a comment. It disappeared. I posted it again. It came back along with the re-post. Then they both disappeared.

Fortunately they were about Liberalproverbs18:2, so neither one was important.

Guy,

I apologize for the problems. Surely there must be a way of telling the gremlins that "Guy Faulkes" is cool. I'll see what I can do.

" Surely there must be a way of telling the gremlins that "Guy Faulkes" is cool."

The gremlins most likely have it right and understand a post with La, La, La is Spam.

guy faulkes said...

Can't be Liberalprverbs18:2. It lets more mindlessly repetitive drivel through.

guy faulkes said...

Should have said your, not more. It works for Liberalproverbs18:2 either way.

Honest Debate said...

Guy and Lib,

I looked in the spam folder and was unable to find Guy's post. If I find them I can mark them as "not spam" and the gremlins will learn. It worked for Mike D.

Lib may have a point. I thing the problem with Mike D. was the "." in his moniker. Maybe the La La La has something to do with it. Could it be one La too many? I have no idea but the mystery is bugging (no pun) me. I hate for Guy to have trouble.

I will post a La La Anonymously next and see what happens.

I think it only kicks in when more than a dozen post with La La La come from the same poster.

Good luck. Maybe Guy could just post a thoughtful post?

Jack said...

A comment of mine on "the big chill" was lost to the spam can.

Honest Debate said...

Jack,

As you probably have already seen, I found your comment in the spam box and marked it as "not spam". It's back up.

Sorry for the trouble, I can't explain it but it should be fixed now. please let us know if you have more problems.
