I am on a rant today. Something arrived on the blog that has me upset, angry and discussed all at the same time.
I do not know how our spam filters work here on the blog. I am just grateful they are in place as it seems there is just so much garbage floating around out there, just floating around looking for sites to land in. I know there is not a lot we can do about most of it other than just ignore it. Or,not even think about it as the filter somehow just puts it in the spam file, we never see it and with some time it just dissappears.I don’t know how it works, some sort of a soft wear program that filters out comments based on some sort of parameters.
I received a comment that somehow made it past the spam and was put in the section from where I am asked to moderate. (decide if I want to allow the comment to make it to the blog or I can then mark it as spam. Returning from vacation, I did in fact have a comment awaiting my moderation. It was sickening and disgusting but if such comments are out there floating around I am glad it came to me.
This comment contained a list of sex sites. Now that in itself is not uncommon, it is amazing what is out there. Now because this comment required me to moderate it, I was forced to actually look at it. A sex site yes but one apparently showing pictures of preteens. On seeing this I can’t tell you how disgusted and jumping up and down mad I was. If I knew who the perpetator of this site was I would be introducing him/her to my baseball bat.
Why am I glad this comment came to me and was then brought to my attention? So I could report it to the police and cybertips. Just thinking of the content of such sites turns my stomach. I didn’t actually click on any of the listed sites the police can so that. If anyone has a site like that give me a call I would really like to meet with you. I have a good friend Mr. Bat that I would like to introduce you to.
I have left the message sitting there for a week now to allow the police or who ever to what they need to. It infuriates me every time I come on the blog and see that note message pending as I know what it is. Today it is gone.
I ask everyone check your spam and call the police if you have any referring to such crap sites.
I had more “normal” things to discuss today, my trip to RANA. I will do that later, just thinking about that comment has me to wired up
