For a long time we thought SPAM was the
"undisputed king of mystery meat"
We had seen it at the grocery store

but had never known it could be
served as an
hors d'oeuvre

Our human sissy, Kat,
who checks out Roadside America
for funky places to visit has even
been to the SPAM Museum in Minnesota.

But the SPAM we've been receiving
is not edible.
We don't want to go this far,
but we have upped the security on our blog.
Have you had any problems with SPAM
and what did you do to stop it?
We'd love to know.

Non-edible Spam I've had a plenty over my time blogging hence being on my 3rd blog & having Comment Moderation!
The latter works, as you can filter & most Spammers know they will never go public on your blog so give up & move to an easier target.

Love, pats & pets

Spam Stinks.

I changed to a Mac and lost most of the problems. No pop ups and very little SPAM.

Stella said...

My ISP offers a $1 a month service to knock out most Spam, we buy it and it works. Once in a while something sneaks in, but not very often. Well worth the buck a month!

You get a little daily digest of what got removed so in case its a friend in there you can rescue him or her.

Check with your Internet Service Provider and see if they have such a thing in your area.

Just got our first two so-called "Anonymous" comments on blog and I have to do the same. And the google email is a joke. I'm constantly putting garbage (and potentially dangerous) mail into the spam account. But BTW, you did a pawesome job of this post!!! Have a good remainder of the weekend and sorry you've had this yucky issue to contend with.

Knokhking paws on my mom's head, I don't have much problem with it...

I don't have khomment moderation in place...I just go bakhk and delete the ones that don't belong there...

PeeEssWoo: My mom says growing up she had Spam almost evfurry week -and now she khan't believe she's admitting that!

MAX said...

I do the same as Khyra, but also build in a 'later than 14 day moderation" setting. I find that most of our "anonymous" spam is put onto blogposts over 14days old. It is really a yukky thing - and if only those spammers would realise that we would never, ever consider any of their products!! They are wasting their time!
Thanks for the pertinent post.

Maggie and Mitch said...

We've been getting spam in our comments lately too, guys and we honestly haven't been doing a thing, just ignoring it. It's been harmless so far!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

SPAM!! my dad loves it and yes, they both have been to the spam musuem. They thought it was cool.They came home with a book about Spam, several kinds of spam, 4 spam shirts, a spam cookbook, a spam snowglobe, spam stickers. They saw the spam puppetshow, and the parking spots are marked SPAM and there is a spam restaurant. They missed the spam singers though LOL You can see all the spam cans from around the world and how it fed guys in the war. They really had fun and my dad gets Spam EVERY Fathers day for sure.


Ms. ~K said...

Yep, had to start moderating comments...
Sending a hug for Thanksgiving!

Ginger Jasper said...

Kira The BeaWootiful said...

Wooos Scotties! Sorry about the Spam thingy, Mom does what Khyra's Mom does, but also I have comment moderation after 48hours, that is when I usually get the crap, we just delete the comment if it happens.

Yuh, we get the spam sometimes too. We just delete it.

No, we've been relatively lucky with our blog and have received very little spam. Can't say the same for our facebook page though!

take care

The OP Pack said...

We have had a couple of spam comments on our blog recently but just delete them too. If it got really bad, we would probably go to comment moderations, but we really don't want to do that.

Woos, the OP Pack

Benny and Lily said...

We never tasted that stuff. Mom said a good email, firewall, securuty program will do the job.

Spam, spam, spam and eggs! Oh, erm. Mom uses comment moderation and no-stick spray.

*kissey face*

Courtney said...

Mom says SPAM is a four-letter word. No matter what form or format. We aren't allowed to have it in our house. Should I be said?

Dory and the Mama said...

We just recently started getting it too! I think we are going to take Khyra's approach and just delete what doesn't belong for now...unless it gets real bad...


The 'splorin' Wolfies said...

my daughter saw some Spam in the grocery store and thought it was a clever gimick--it is so strange that she thought the computer term came first!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Spam, now there's something that'll just drive Her crazy! I haven't received that much on my blog (The Scottie Chronicles), but She gets SO MUCH in Her e-mail inbox that She wants to throw the computer out of the window! So, a technician is coming by to switch Her to some other kind of e-mail thingy (through g-mail and google??) next month. I'll ask Her to keep you posted.

Happy Almost Turkey Day!

I do what Khyra does just delete it. Kit changed her comments to after owners approval. That worked for her.
Good luck, Fern
