Spamming

One wonders what technology will be like in the next decade. The last decade has been astonishing. I can barely keep up with social media, yet I love it.

One thing I can assure you of is that I will not tolerate advertising or spam in any form of my social media as far as I can prevent it or react to it. So you THE ONLY TRUE HACKER IN THE WORLD ®8:20 pm can just go and get buggered. Your spam lasts an hour at best. I have my phone when I am out. I see you, focus on you and delete your comments by phone, tablet or desktop whatever you are saying that no one would click on anyway.. I certainly haven't and I don't have a clue what you are about.

I don't know why you bother and why make more work for me?

  2. They have been very busy in the New Year. I have deleted well over 150 spammy comments in the last week. A couple from the only true hacker and many more from people trying to encourage me to buy viagra.

  3. Same feelings I have about them!!! Grrrr!!!

    I've not got any viagra sales pitches for a while, but lately I have been getting emails from shapely young women of questionable integrity, and lands of origin, offering me their services.

    They sure would get a hell of a shock if they learned I am an ancient old woman with grey hair, a straight right, and powerful left upper-cut; and one with no female on female yearnings!

    As I've said before the idiots in this world are breeding faster than rabbits and cockroaches these day! I think they could be related to cockroaches, actually!

    1. Lee, I really wish it was appropriately targeted spamming. They should be treated as cockroaches.

  4. I have a Spam catcher on my blog. I have to check it as occasionally it gets a little aggressive. Good luck.

    1. Maribeth, Blogger does catch a lot of spam but not all. These were quite unusual, hence them getting through I think.

  5. You're a kinder man than me Andrew, I didn't bother with any such warning, I just deleted the bugger after marking the comments as spam. I just hope nobody actually clicks any links and gets sucked in, he's a money thief I think.

    1. River, as I just wrote above, these were a bit different to the usual. Normally I do just delete.

  6. I'm assuming that most of my spam emails and comments are bots (automated). I don't waste my time on scolding them because "they" don't even exist. The comments are generated by computer algorithms, not real people, most of the time. Just delete them, and keep your blood pressure at a reasonable level :D

    1. That sounded bossy, I didn't mean it like that!

    2. That's ok Jenny. I like dominant women 🤦‍♂️. As I said above, these were a bit different and seemed to be hand done, or at least a cut above the usual algorithm type. They seemed to have some relevance to the post.

  7. My life is uneventful and if big brother has interest in me, I would called disperation. I find the ads interesting on social media and how they target us by our activity on social media.

    But I wonder how some fall for spam. Some are so stupid

    1. Dora, so many do fall for spam messages. It is funny how often though social media gets your likes so wrong.
