What do you think?

March 11th, 2019 at 03:17 pm

I feel like I've gotten a lot done already this morning. Emptied the dishwasher, exercised, cleaned up, read a magazine so I can return it and my other large pile of things to the library, and wrote a letter. I like days like this when I get quite a bit done early.

I noticed that there is someone who sometimes comments on my blogs and they are not very nice comments. Either that person is really cranky or someone who wants to comment and then start something. I deleted the last comment. I notice when I get an email, I get an email address for them. I sort of wonder if this is their way of capturing our email addresses to send spam. It seems in the past when I've done that, I get a bunch of spam from a different website. What do you think?

    The spam that other bloggers get is kind of non relevant, random stuff. Whereas the ones you get seem to be more personal. Do people in your life know that you blog? Could it be someone you know?

    I'm getting those comments too. I contacted James, who thinks the person has a mental issue. He suggested to delete. There's one still on my last post...see if that's similar to what you are seeing.

    Hmm--I'll check it out. You did get a lot done, Rob!

    CCF, that is the person who has unloaded on my blog, too. She is an equal opportunity crank. Pretty sad that this is how she gets her jollies. As for the spam question, I think that more likely comes from the commenters who leave a bunch of gibberish and an embedded link.

    Thank you for your comments. Butterscotch, yes, my friends know I blog, but I cannot figure out who it might be. I do think this person certainly has some problems. Guess I should look at it as if they are hassling me, maybe they are not bothering someone else. Anyway, than you all for your positive comments.

    A few months ago, I had a commenter who was very rude and snide. I told her to kick rocks. Don't know if it is the same person or not.

    I've been getting lots of the spam comments lately, too. Delete, delete, delete.

    Yes, spam is different. Usually a link involved. This person is rude and seems not to even read much of what is written. We've been lucky really to have been insulated for many years without rude commenters trolling us. I don't really want to engage this person. They are more likely to stay around.

    That's very interesting to know. I've had someone repeatedly leave snide comments on my blog as well. It's a little pathetic that someone has nothing better to do with their life then live vicariously by reading someone else's blog and then leaving vicious little comments for them. Just delete them. It's a lurker here, not your friends.

    If this site was a closed forum like Facebook groups, this kind of thing wouldn't happen.

    I'm sorry so many of you have had the troll make hurtful comments. I don't know why they feel they have a need to -- most of us get along and try to support each other.

    Rob, I've had the same issue on my blog. I engaged a few times, but then just ignored. She seems to have moved on from my blog at least.
