Comment FAIL

Okay, I was getting all bummed out. You know, no comments and stuff. Thinking, gah, here I've flippin' bored everyone to death with posts about homeschooling and vomit and blah blah blah.

Maybe everyone is sick of me. Maybe they forgot I even exist.

Maybe they aren't paying any attention and I'm disappearing into a black hole that is the internetz.......

AAAAAGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHGHGHHGHH!AGHH!

Existential angst! It's all over! Kill me now!


But then, just now, when I was just talking to Aphrodite (the now 21-year-old vomit-carpet-bomber) she commented about her comments. I was all, "Hell, no one comments on my blog at all any more! Not even you!"

She assured me that she most definitely did, and I had a sneaking suspicion... Remember the other day when Mr. CHINESELANGUAGESPAMMER left comments all over my blog? Yeah, I turned on comment moderation. But neglected to put in a notifying email address, so all the comments were hung up out there in cyberspace, waiting for approval, without letting me know they were there. They might have waited FOREVER. Good Lord! And I would have continued feeling all huffy and you all would have been all insulted, and it would have been a blogging disaster!

Thanks for all the wonderful comments, guys. Now I'm off to read through them over and over again, until I have them all memorized and I've worked all my giggles out. xxx!

I kept wondering what I might have said that was so offensive????You wouldn't publish it.... but then, alas, it is me and my brain is frequently out of gear...

Did you get the oriential porn spam too? My daughter said it meant we had arrived!

Sorry, I personally haven't been commenting, but hopefully, this will rectify the situation.

Skyler's Dad -- I know, I was SURE I had my email in there when I filled out the preference thing. Harumph! And now Blogger's gone and mucked everything up. Oh well. I'd rather hear from all of you and Mr. chineselanguagespammer than no one at all, fo' sho'!

eloh -- and you of all people, I'm so glad to hear from you, so to have your comment held up! Grrr! *tears hair out* Believe me, nothing offends me, much. Seen it all, heard more!

sas -- now that is extremely illuminating. And points out to me that for accuracy, we must now refer to him as Mr. TAIWANESELANGUAGESPAMMER. Also, who knew anything about "toot toot the adult net"? I think if we reformat this, we'll have a great entry for the next poetry slam.

Tennyson -- hiiiiii! It's like old home week here! Come on in! :-)

This is me giving a sigh of relief on this side of the world. You cannot imagine the ordeal I went through not seeing my comments I spend so much time and care with writing ... Hehehe ... I actually just feel like that kid in the class who doesn't know what the heck is going on but doesn't want to put her hand up in fear of looking like an idiot. Glad to hear it's all sorted out now :)

Moannie said...

You are on my list so I must have joined you and therefore commented...I never leave a post withing leaving something there. that odd spam thing, with all the o's and squares...I had to delete one the other day and it came from a regular of mine...it's all greek to me, just cannot understand WHY they do it.

mo.stoneskin said...

An excuse! An excuse!

*blink*

(Assuming she doesn't pay too much attention...)

Iota said...

You do the same thing as I sometimes do. At the end of a post, you add a few lines and then a full stop (period). I started off doing it because in one particular post, there was a significance in the last phrase, and it was clear from the comments that a few people were missing it altogether.

Have you spotted other people doing it too? Or is it a unique Iota/Expateek thing? Could we patent it and make a fortune?

Madame DeFarge said...

Yup, the spammer is seriously irritating. I've turned on the moderation and will now go to check it too. And I like homeschooling posts.

Lola Lakely said...

Ugh, that happened to me a few weeks ago. Dirty, flithy chinesespammer. And he wasn't even thoughtfull enough to leave his spammer comments in English. Fucker.

marry said...

Blogs are so informative where we get lots of information on any topic. Nice job keep it up!!

My first instinct was to deliberately refrain from commenting on this post just to drive you crazy. Unfortunately nobody else seems to have the same evil sense of humour as me and ruined the joke.

Hannah Rose said...

Comment fail? What about POSTING fail? All your faithful readers, and nothing to entertain them. Masters, shmasters. Finish up and ENTERTAIN US!!!!!

Christine said...

Eeeeeeeeee! Chinese Porn Spammer! Now I am afraid! I will be checking my comments every five minutes to make sure nothing bad is there.

ladyfi said...

Amazing what chaos those spammers can cause! I've commented a few times... you've never reciprocated and vowed me your undying devotion (sniff! that's all it takes...) - see what a fine mess that Chinese spammer has gotten us all into! ;-9
