A Reminder

This is a reminder about something I wrote about last year.

IF YOU LEAVE A COMMENT ON ANY OF MY POSTS THAT IS A LINK TO SOMETHING YOU ARE SELLING, OR SIMPLY A LINK TO YOUR OWN BLOG, THEN IT WILL BE MARKED AS SPAM, BEFORE BEING DELETED.

I WILL NEVER APPROVE SUCH A COMMENT, AND AFTER A WHILE WORDPRESS WILL MARK EVERY COMMENT YOU TRY TO LEAVE ON ANY BLOG AS SPAM.

YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE, SO PLEASE STOP DOING THIS ON MY BLOG.
IF IT CONTINUES, YOU WILL BE ‘NAMED AND SHAMED’, BELIEVE ME.

IF YOU WANT TO COMMENT, READ THE POST, AND LEAVE A COMMENT THAT IS RELEVANT.

A LINK TO YOUR BUSINESS BLOG DOES NOT QUALIFY AS THAT.

Trick, No Treat: An Urgent Warning for Cat-Lovers, Writers, and…Everyone Else

A warning to all cat lovers! Plastic can cause thyroid problems!
Please read this post, and the linked post too.

Lara Trace Hentz

We have caused this one. I am talking about plastics in our environment. And I am talking about their insidious effect on the thyroid – HUMAN and animal.

This post is about an emerging health crisis facing cats in particular and everything and everyone else in addition, and we have caused it

…This is not going to go away. And if you have ever loved a cat, you know how emotionally charged this issue is about to become.” –

Spam Warning: Invasion!

Over the past four days, I have been notified of over 180 Spam comments. Five of those were placed there in error, from bloggers I know. All the others were like those shown below; seemingly meaningless, and from dubious email addresses. This selection arrived just a few minutes ago, and is the third such grouping I have had today.

Fortunately, they were all placed in the Spam Folder, by WordPress. But as a warning to everyone, if something like this turns up in your comments, or awaiting moderation, make sure to delete it without opening the link.

It seems we are being invaded!

SHOULD I HAVE BINNED THIS?

I am reblogging this from Felicity’s site as a warning. If you ever think about doing a blog interview, read this first.

theshammuramat

garbage-4090382_1920Two years ago I interviewed a well known author who objected to the verbatim written form of their verbal statements. It put me in a difficult position since I did not agree with them about their representation of the veracity of the interview.

 Looking back two years later at our emails I see we were arguing over what the author thought they had said, and what in fact I had written down, after I had carefully reviewed and transcribed our conversation.

As a result and as they requested I agreed not to publish the verbatim Q & A..

 I was in a difficult position however since I had spent a lot of time preparing for the interview, and also on conducting it, thus I decided to use some of the material I had collected.  I took it and wrote a comparative critique between the two of us drawing parallel…

***Spam alert: iqra2095***

For the past couple of months, I have been pestered by a spammer, with the blog name of ‘iqra2095’. I have constantly refused to approve comments and replies to comments from this blogger, as it is some kind of online company. It is posing as a young woman by using a gravatar image of an attractive girl.

Despite marking all these attempts as Spam, they keep appearing, mostly as replies to comments from my readers and followers. I keep deleting them and reporting them, but I fear they may now be going straight to the sites of my blogging friends here on WordPress.

So please ignore any comments, follows, or requests to follow from this site. I do not know for sure if their intention is sinister, or if they just wish to promote their product. Either way, this is just an annoyance, and should be ignored, just in case.
