Fabulous February -2020 – I Wish

Up and out of the house early this morning to take my son to an appointment and while I was in the waiting room, I thought I’d check my emails.  I get so many because I have about 4 email addresses to help keep things separate.  Anyway, I saw this:

Now, the ones from DT I would have deleted as spam immediately anyway but after I took this screenshot, Tom Cruise, Kirk Douglas, Burt Lancaster and Jacob Marley also stopped by my blog to leave me comments!  These were on my Blogger site and unfortunately Blogger is not as efficient as WordPress at weeding out these crazy people.  It was too hard for me to navigate on my phone so I had to wait until I got home to handle this mess.

I mean, I know I write very insightful and interesting blog posts but I’m pretty sure that Leo, Tom and Bruce have other things to do, not to mention that Burt Lancaster is dead and Winnie the Pooh and Jacob Marley are fictional characters.  Somebody has too much time on their hands and just what do they expect to gain from this?  They have to know that the comments are going to be marked as spam and deleted don’t they? 

Does this ever happen to you?  What do you do about it?

    Good grief on your inbox, Janet. Although, you never know. Winnie the Pooh is often insightful. 🙂Good luck on weeding through the emails. I also hope your son is okay.

    I have a friend who tweets all the time. I can’t keep up with everything. I try to minimize social media. I hate having more than 3 emails unanswered. I try to separate work and play and interests.Or else, I just get too confused.

  4. LOL – My spam filter weeds out all of those and I never look to see what is captured. It would be dreamy to hear from Tom though! Way to attract the big guns! 😉

  5. Janet,

    WOW, I never knew you were so deeply connected with the Hollyweird scene, dead people, fictional characters, and the President! Gee, you really surprise me! lol The spam that I get is no where nearly as interesting as yours.

    Crikey, my spam is so much more mundane & hugely less creative in their fake names 😂

    Why do you have your blog in two places? Seems like it’s more trouble than it could be worth. Unless you like getting emails from Leo, Tom, and Bruce, of course. 😉

      Ally, when I started my blog it was on Blogger only but during the first A to Z challenge I saw that almost everyone was on WP so I started a blog there. John Holton showed me how to simulcast using ITTT so I just create the blog on Blogger and it automatically posts on WP too so I’m only doing one post not two. I may give up Blogger but I am used to its format so it will be a learning curve with WP.

    Akismet does a better-than-average job of filtering out spam. Spam was another reason I stopped simulcasting.


  9. Hi, Janet – I’ve never had any celebrities comment on my blog (IRL or as spam). It would be cool to receive their IRL comments!

      I’ve tagged a few celebs on Instagram when I included them in one of the Sketchbooks I did but never got any response. It surprised me that the actual comments from these people were long.
