But the reason for this post is not to whine about kitchen renos. It is to whine about spam. I will be reinstating the 'prove you are not a robot' step (sorry, readers!) - thirty four comments in my inbox this morning, every one of them spam. This is not counting the dozen or so others that went directly to spam and I don't have to look at to verify whether they are legitimate or not. Most of the ones in my indbox are marketing for things I consider offensive, and I'm just not about to let them invade my life. So the ridiculous scrambled words are back in place.
I will never understand the mentality, rudeness and plain stupidity of spammers. Do they really get any sales this way? Are there really bloggers so gullible that they publish the comments and/or go to the websites and buy the merchandise?
Sigh. Now I'm going to be in a bad mood all day. Time to walk the dog. Or smell the roses.
Or pick some homegrown tomatoes.
Time to find some balance.
Maybe the spammers should do the same.
