Spam, the other pink meat?


 Remember that stuff? Spam, do they still sell that? Is that even meat? Spam, the meat that looks like vomit in a can, and you wonder why they never let me write the commercials for it! It's one of those foods I remember, if you threw a piece to the farm dogs, they would sniff it and then look at you as if to say, "umm what am I supposed to do with this?" That always made me suspicious, this from the same animals that loved rotting groundhog.

 This is my blog PSA! I have discovered some new form of weird spam thing happening, I'm not sure what is up but here is my alert. The Spamholes are going to some of my older posts, they put a link in the comments section, usually to gambling sites or uuugh, straight porn sites! I'm not sure what the reason is but they are doing it. Watch your post stats, if you find that ten to twenty people a day are suddenly "reading" a three-year old post about you buying socks... then it's a good chance that you have been part of the spam scam. I don't want to have to turn on the comments control section but I may have to. I'm going to see if I can block comments on old posts like people do on WordPress.

 I have had this happen about five or six times in the last year. Lately it was on my Halloween post from 2018, I was surprised to find it one of the top read posts. I couldn't remember anything exciting so I looked back. Actually it was a boring post, I worked late so I missed everything. Then I noticed a link recently put in the comment section to a gambling site.

 Spammers... worse than rotting groundhog meat.

anne marie in philly said...

and yes, spammers suck major rotting ASS! turn on the comment modification and they will stop eventually.

Christina said...

Yes, they still sell it. Here in the UK we have a choice. Spam or spam lite.......😂😂

Leanna said...

Personally, the comment thingy is working great at stopping spammers. I love it.

Deedles said...

Spam, a gelatinous encased salt lick! Balder Half has some in our earthquake supplies. Death by falling building would be preferable. As for spammers, I believe Anne Marie has said it all. I feel for y'all.

RJ said...

I can think of another pink meat, which, is where I thought this post was going when I read the title.

Dave R said...

AM is right! In Hawaii, Spam is the Holy Meat in a Blue Can. I eat it now and then, it's not that bad. I like mine fried, with dippy eggs.

And start moderating your comments. I do. It's the only way to control these morons.

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Oh, you hoity-toity bastard . . . you got to eat SPAM? We had to make do with KLIK, Spam's downmarket cousin.

Bob said...

AM is right.

Having lived in Hawaii I can say that SPAM is the best-selling import to the islands. I NEVER ate it. However low they are, I still have standards!

Facts is facts.

Now spam? Fuck 'em and block 'em.

Old Lurker said...

RJ: That would be the first pink meat, which is why Spam is the OTHER pink meat.

Sometimes I miss spam. Then I see the headaches you Blogger people have to deal with and I don't miss it any more.

Sixpence Notthewiser said...

I have never eaten Spam. I hear they make awesome dishes with it in Hawaii.
For blog spammers I implemented moderation in any post older than a day. And I report each and every fucker that tries to spam my comments section.

XoXo

Old Lurker said...

Sixpence has the right idea. Moderate any comment on a post older than a few days (maybe a week), so Deedles and I can continue chatting/harassing you after everybody else has stopped paying attention.

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Anne Marie, maybe we should ship it all there!

Sooo-this-is-me said...

I just may have to Anne Marie.

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Christina, so yuck and less yucky? Lol :)

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Leanna, if we give in to spammers, then the spammers win! Hahaha!

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Deedles, to be honest I was afraid you were going to say it makes great sandwiches with ice cream or something! Hahaha... salt lick... you made a good funny!!! :D

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Gasp! Clutches pearls. Richard I thought you were one of the classier readers of this blog, I'm simply speechless. I don't do smutt... but that's a good idea.

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Dave, no, just no! What are dippy eggs?

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Actually Debra, :( we went through some hard times and.. and.. I'm ashamed to say... we had to go even worse.. Kam! Spam and Klik's poor cousin. It was either that or share some rotting groundhog with Rex.

Sooo-this-is-me said...

With all the fresh sea food and fruit and they love Spam????!!!!

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Well Lurkey we know what RJ has on his mind! Lol.
You and Deedles already say it's hard to get through, I'm afraid if I put in anti spam you guys won't get through :( ...and I would really really miss Deedles.
:D

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Sixpence.. so you're a golden Spam gay!
I always report as well.

HuntleyBiGuy said...

I know I’ve had Spam in the past, the actual, out of the can stuff. But growing up in a family of 6 boys, mom and dad had to make one paycheck last. In the deli at the grocery store, they sold a lunch meat called spiced ham, which I later determined is the same as Spam. It was our go to lunch meat.

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Old Lurker, sounds like a plan man!

Sooo-this-is-me said...

HuntleyBiGuy, well you lived so I guess it was ok! Lol

Jimmy said...

At my age I welcome telemarketers and spammers I just spoke with a cute gay boy from
arizona with
wells
fargo who was gay. I invited him for Holloween. It should be big this year.

Old Lurker said...

Yes, it would be catastrophic if Deedles could not comment.

I cannot comment for Blogger blogs that (a) require Google accounts, (b) put Captcha's embedded in the comment field (Maddie, Sixpence, John Gray), (c) use some awful third party commenting system like Disqus. Moderated comments are okay, although they permit less sparring.

Deedles said...

Lurkster, I think you mistakenly used catastrophic instead of restful. I only have a problem when that thing asks me to prove I'm not a robot. I'm not a robot, I'm just blind as a proverbial bat, even with 20-20 vision. It only happens on occasion, but it is frustrating with its inconsistency. Of course, the same can be said for me, so I'll shut up.

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Jimmy, do you have a boyfriend/husband? I'm thinking you said that you do. I hang up immediately on telemarketers. That's cute if you made a friend.

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Lurky, awww lol, I would miss you too buddy. I will see what my options are.

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Deedles, I need to read this over again to figure out exactly what you are saying to me, not enough coffee in me I guess. Lol :D

Deedles said...

Steve, I guess that comment was kind of murky. I was just talking about the thingy that makes one prove that they're not a robot by identifying fuzzy pictures as cars, crosswalks, traffic lights and such. If you miss a couple you have to do it again. This only pops up on occasion now. Clearer? Now, I'm off to the nutritionist to get my cussing out for cheating on my diet, I mean lifestyle change. Cheap thrills.

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Deedles, tell them about the sandwich, yes.... you know what I'm talking about!

Mildred Ratched said...

They still sell Spam and I actually know people who eat it! YUCK! I think Spammers should eat Spamwiches 3 times a day,

Deedles said...

Stevie, sandwich, what sandwich? Who are you? Who am I? What is this place? Where are my chocolate covered cherries? Ooooh, salami, lettuce and jelly! Where is the bread?

Jimmy said...

Yes Steven, I'm an old married. 32 years two weeks ago. But I can look and flirt. We both comment on hotness of cage fighters on TV.

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Mildred, hahaha, that's a good solution, make spammers eat spam!

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Deedles... did you say chocolate covered cherries??? Now see this is why you're in my posse!!!

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Jimmy, mmmmm cage fighters, I think the winner should get to top the loser.
I thought you said you are married, I'm glad you have someone. :)

Jimmy said...

I am too! And I hope the same for you. smooch!

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Me too Jimmy, me too. Wouldn't that make a great blog post, my gay wedding day!!!

Jimmy said...

Only if OL catches the bouquet!

Sooo-this-is-me said...

Jimmy, smart as a whip you are!!! Hahaha!
