A Few Blog Things


* I'll be adding some blogs and deleting some from the side bar.  If you have blogs you'd like to see on the side bar that I don't have already, please let me know which one(s).

* I moderate ALL comments so don't try to leave a nasty comment on this blog.  Just a fair warning for all you nasty comment leavers out there that you won't get anywhere here.

* First off I will no longer post comments from "Anonymous" users where the person doesn't include their name on the comment. I know there are real readers out there who for some reason can't post a comment except under the anonymous setting.  This is not directed at y'all.
 I have either a serial spam comment leaver or a couple of them.  If you are a spammer and you leave a comment full of bad grammar/structure(I am talking horrendously bad!)leading me to believe you aren't a native English speaker and/or a bot or you leave comments on old posts and/or comments that have nothing to do with the post you are leaving it on, just go away please.  I am tired of deleting spamming comments.  Even if  you add a fake name to these types of spam comments they will still be deleted and not put through.

I've had a real bad day here and I am about ready to just delete this blog.  Some times life is a lot harder and putting up with this sort of stuff(meaning the second two bullet point items)is just not worth it......

  2. You know, sometimes, particularly after a glass of wine or three, I'd love to see the nasty comments to which you refer, so I could respond in turn. Yours is a blog I truly enjoy, and I don't want to see it stifled. I feel you put yourself out there, warts and all, and reading it makes me bolder about leading my family along on our own off kilter type of life. Your blog continues to remind me that if you follow the herd, you run the risk of them leading you right off the cliff.

  3. Wow, sorry slugs, so I take it you are getting those friendly eastern comments, or people offering to loan you money, or snarky people like me. Don't please don't delete. I cry...

  4. Noooo, don't go away. I still get spammers, but somehow, they end up in a spam place without me doing anything to stop them. You aren't purging me from your blog, are you?

  5. I am so sorry to hear this! I would be so sad if you stopped the blog but I understand. I was playing a trivia game last night and thought I would like it much better if I could turn comments off. People say ugly, nasty things. Its very disheartening. I feel like people are starting to talk to each other in real life the way they do online and that is making so much hate in the world.

  7. (((((Sluggy))))) I'm sorry you had a bad day. Spammers are the worst. I hope today is better for you and I hope you do not delete your blog. I would miss you and it terribly. Love and Hugs to you my friend.

  8. Please don't let a few bad apples ruin your day...or your blog. They are just not worth it. Do you use a spam blocker? While it won't catch it all, it can help.

  9. I’ve read where several other bloggers seem to be having issues, again, with spammers. It seems to me, if they’d put that much effort into a real job they’d be very well off!
    Thanks for leaving the anonymous button. I only have an iPad and gooooogle does not go through unless I leave my accounts open which I will not do. My super-connected (adult) children are always putting the fear of GOD in me about computers. Eeeeesch....

  10. I hope you day gets better! I love your blog and find it interesting and informative. I don’t ever remember reading anything on your blog that could remotely cause anyone to leave nasty comments???? What is wrong with people?

  11. So sorry to hear you had a bad day. :-( I rarely get spam comments, (probably because my readership is so low these days), but when I do get them, they go right to the spam folder and I don't see them unless I check. I guess I'm lucky that I don't get nasty comments. Only one or two that were just questionable, but nothing attacking me personally, thank goodness. Well, that's not true...one lady said I'd probably go to hell for selling religious relics, but she was going to pray for me. lol Love you Sluggy! <3

  12. Let me guess your troll is back - why do people have to be so nasty???

    I love your blog please please don’t go away.

    Post them and we will respond for you.

  13. I hope you keep your blog. I dont post many comments but enjoy reading your "adventures" very much --

  14. STAY! Every so often I'll get hit with 5-10 comments all at once (on various posts) but it seems pretty easy to delete and report as spam. I just click on all the comments check box, hit delete/spam once and they are gone. it is very annoying though.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Oh I hope you just hit "pause" and don't stop. I love your blog! Your an ins-pie-ration to us here knew bloggers. Hahaha just kidding about those errors in that last sentence. I am new to blogging and the process of journaling has done much for my winter blues...OK, can winter please be over now? Please!

    I hope your day is better...God Bless.

  17. Sluggymama, I'm saddened to hear that nasty commenters and spammers, plus a really bad day for you, are forcing you to consider closing down your blog. Although I'm not at all into couponing and chasing grocery deals, I admire all the work you have put into the above to add to your family's savings. Enjoy your detailed stories about your family's doings and particularly history of your various ancestors. Like many other of the above commenters, I would be very sorry to lose you as a blogger: You are very articulate, amusing, and always a breath of fresh air in the blogging world.

  18. I hope you don't end this blog - I look forward to it every day but I also understand how old it must get to deal with wackos. I don't understand people sometimes, if you don't like something, don't read it...why isn't it as simple as that????

  19. So sorry you are having a bad day! Hugs and hope that today is better!

  20. I hope you are feeling better today! Please don't delete!

  21. So sorry about the comments. I realize just how vanilla I am since I don't get crappy comments and even the spammers are not ugly, but I do delete them as soon as I see them.
    I have been reading your blog for a long time now and can't imagine what anyone would find offensive about it.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I enjoy reading your blog very much. The only way that I can comment is by being "anonymous" and would hate to see that feature done away with. Don't let a few spoil enjoying reading your comments for the many who look forward to your site! Penny S.

  23. Dear Sluggy,

    What is wrong with these people!!!! I'm sorry you are having problems with spammers. Please don't remove your blog. I do enjoy it everyday and would hate to see you go. So many excellent blogs are leaving because of this reason. Please hang in there!

  25. Please don't stop blogging. There are so any cruel people in this world, but there are many more kind and generous people (like you) - ignore the jerks - delete them and stay with us, please. Ranee (MN)

  27. So sorry your having a bad day, I just wanted you to know I rarely post but I enjoy reading your emails everyday in fact your the only blog I read every day. Hope tomorrow is better and hope Chester will make you smile.

  28. I feel your pain, lady! I have had struggles with blogger as far as getting my picture lined up, text turning blue, etc. I delete any comment that matches your SPAM description. I did end up closing the Yahoo email account associated with the blog because it kept getting hacked. It sometimes makes it hard to continue.

  29. Nooooooo..... Sluggy. please don't go!!!

  30. You can't go away! I want to be you when I grow up and I need the inspiration!

  31. We love reading all of your stuff. I'm sorry that you are having a bad. Do not let some losers bring you down. You help so many of us. You have made me laugh so many times. You are one of the reasons I started my own blog. I hope you have a better day.

Hey there! Thanks for leaving a comment. Though I moderate it's partly to keep spam out but also partly so that I read every comment. I don't often respond to comments so if you need me to answer you please write me at my email addy posted on my "About Me" page, linked on the side bar.
