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
Thank God you got this and were able to do something about it. I hope this leads to the arrest of the perp. I will pray for the precious little victims of this horrible person/s. I hope your day gets better.
Thank goodness you took action, Bill. May I never receive such atrocious spam, but now I know that the police want to know about it. That’s important to know.
You be mad….I’ll just be sad for the victims and hope for someone to actually put an end to it.
The sad truth is few folks report stuff that finds them. I think they figure ‘what’s the point–‘. In my case, the point is I can’t NOT report it. I just can’t. Breaks my heart….makes me nauseous. *sigh* I have to live with me, I guess–doing less, I couldn’t be okay with.
Thank you. Seriously…..we all get ‘stuff’ sent on to us and we use that ‘delete button and sometimes just keep on keepin’ on. You didn’t. I’m glad. And I’m honoured that you’re my friend.
((((((((( Bill )))))))))))))
Welcome back, sir.
You were missed!
OODLES, even! 🙂
Watch yer ticker Bill… Don’t let these cretins get under your skin…
Keep Mr. Bat handy (the police) and use them. Then go meditate:)
Safe in the knowledge, ‘you have done what you can’, then, let the professionals deal with these sickos..
Hi Bill ~~ I am glad that you caught up with these blog molesters. I doubt they think you will click on the links. One night “one” spent hours and hours messing with my comments. That was the night before I started using comment moderation on the older blogs.
Mine are in Chinese. Even each period is a link of its own to some writing on the Internet.
My tracker says they came from China. Each ‘iota’ of data there may be coded for espianage of some sort waiting for anothe agent to read this ‘new’ message?
Bill sounds like you need a trip to the Heart Failure Clinic , if you have a stint they sometimes slip but you might need some other attention—don’t wait for heart attack number 6.
Kudos to you for reporting that to the police, Bill. I hope they are able to track down the person who sent it. Thank you for the heads up. I don’t often remember to check the moderation queue on my blog, but I will start looking at it more closely from now on.
