Six-Word Saturday 6.4.22

If I didn’t respond to someone’s comment during the last three days, it probably ended up in my spam folder where I found 222 spam comments which I deleted batch by batch. If yours was hidden there somewhere, my apologies. I haven’t been on my laptop to find them since arriving in California.

    Fun title, Janet. 🙂
    I’m not sure if I’ve commented on your blog recently, but I’ve noticed I’ve left comments in other places that have gone unanswered; I thought it was something I’d said, but it’s possible I could’ve been flung into the spam folder. You’ve made me make a note to check my spam folder more often, just in case I’m missing any comments on my blog… it does feel like you’re being ignored, which isn’t really the best.
    Happy Saturday, Janet! 🙂

    • In the last several months I’ve just been bombarded by spam! I normally check two or three times a day, but just haven’t gotten to it in the last few days. If I have 60 or 70, I check each group before deleting to make sure there’s not a real comment in there about 222, I just couldn’t do it. 😉

    Oh, clever!

  3. I’ve also had a lot of spam lately!

  4. Debbie Smyth says:

    Very clever – I’ve posted a few lone gloves in my time and never thought of that title

  5. Love that clever pun. 🙂

    every so often I find one of my readers in my spam and I fish it back out)

  7. You’re so clever and witty with your captions!

    WP is being weird lately. I’ve found comments in my spam too, and one blogger told me my comment s were ending up in her spam folder. I hope you have it sorted out now. 222 is a lot of comments to approve!

  8. Gotta love when spam filters make things more difficult instead of easier, which is often…

    Delete away! Just enjoy yourself.

    Mine’s are tied up in Sunday’s relaxing mode 🙂

    LOL, perfect Janet! Count yourself lucky on the spam. I clean mine out every week and it’s always in the hundreds. Unfortunately you have to review every batch rather than miss someone’s comment 🤬

    • Marsha just mentioned that she closes comments after 30 days and doesn’t get much spam. It’s a thought.

      • Tina Schell says:

        Sadly I clear mine weekly so the 30-day comment probably wouldn’t help. Typically it’s 3 or 4 commenters who post 30 or 40 times per post. Fortunately the spam blocker keeps them out of m y posts.

  12. Marsha says:

    I closed comments on posts older than 30 days. That has cut my spam comments back to almost zero. I had 12 in the past two weeks and five of them were not spam, just short comments by friends. One had a comment almost a page long of pure garbage.

    OMG! It’s a gnarled northern starfish.
    Love the capture!

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
