SPAM loves me.

Published: 10 September 2005 | 10 comments

I have come to the realisation that “I love SPAM” and “SPAM loves me” and so we are one big happy family. I made a post about this on the old blog when it happened there, luckily a fix was readily available then.

Since launching God’s Porch I have been receiving lots of love from spammers, so much so that they don’t even bother to write me love notes anymore. Instead they choose to leave the note blank in hopes that I will understand just how much they love me. Thanks, I really do feel the love. I will certainly try my best to give you some love too .

I know you all can see the sarcasm above. I guess in part it is my fault for not putting in the proper measures to prevent or at least reduce the spam. When I was creating the contact form I quickly whipped something together and should have known it was going to happen. I am currently working to hopefully reduce the spam from my contact form.

To the spammers out there, I still love you but there are much better ways of showing love.

Peace and God Bless

Update: It would seem I have found a solution. I have changed my contact form slightly and I am using a TXP plugin called zem_contact . So far so good. Thanks to Alex Shiels for such a nice plugin.

Glad it made you laugh. It was kinda fun posting about it too. I really hope I get it fixed soon though as it is getting annoying.

hehe nice try Mark. Yeah I think I got it fixed as I haven’t received any SPAM today or yesterday.

Have you tried using the word verification on your blog yet? I know that solved my problem on Blogger.

I almost left a blank message just to be funny. Glad you found a solution. My Blogger account has the same problem.

Maybe you should try Innerpeace Escrambler.

Hey Cope. Nice of you to stop on by. Thanks for the link, looks interesting and that could definitely be another solution. I already have a fix for the problem on my site (as noted in the update above). But I am sure this could come in handy for others.

just me testing something, no need to panic. I’m not a spammer. :)
