Nice try.

 

A few weeks ago I got an email from Instagram asking me to confirm the address on my account.

That was interesting…. because I don’t actually have an Instagram account.

Five minutes later I got an email saying my username of rivergirl1211 had been changed.

Changed…

To Blankyhell.

 

 

Yes…

Blankyhell.

If that’s a place, I suppose it looks something like this:

 

2016045722dc7ad0f1a

 

Which is how I feel during a hot flash in bed.

On the other hand, maybe they were thinking more along the lines of:

 

2qgush

 

Either way, it’s a pretty strange name.

So I went into the account, changed the username back, changed the password and then deleted the whole bogus thing.

I only use rivergirl1211 when I blog, so more than likely someone on here set it up.

Why would someone want to be me?

I have no clue.

Hell, half the time…. I don’t even want to be me.

It’s a little creepy being hacked, even if it’s only to Instagram.

Funny part is, the account already had a bunch of followers.  And since the only posted photo was a plain black square….. I can’t say I see the attraction.

Maybe I should have left it active and followed my feed.

You never know what I’ll get up to.

And apparently, neither do I.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Monty Python and Spam….

 

Did you know the reason we call annoying and repetitive messages sent online  ‘Spam’  is due to the 1970 Monty Python sketch that poked fun at the infamous mystery meat?

And while I can’t abide that gelatinous pink brick either…

My WordPress Spam never fails to disappoint.

Take Will for example –

may you
be rich and continue to help others. I am sure this post has touched all the internet viewers, its really really fastidious article.

Thank you Will.

I pride myself on making my posts as sparkling clean as possible.

And then there’s Katie who read my blog about Ding Dongs and said –

This post actually made my day. You can not imagine just how much time I had spent for this information! Thanks!

Clearly the poor woman had been searching high and low for junk food enlightenment . So glad I was able to help…

Kevin is definitely a fan –

Thank you Kevin. I shall continue to provide the superior quality posts you’ve come to know and love.

Roger asks –

Where can i give apart my used handicap scooter?

I’m not sure why he thought I would know, as I’m hoping it will be many years before I need one.

And finally, the Pretty Guinea Pig made another appearance with –

I love to blog.

(I like to think so… but in reality? No.)

I love to read other people’s blogs.

(That looks more like an ostrich egg, but who am I to turn down free food?)

I love to comment on other people’s blogs and have them comment on mine.

(Yes…. Yes I can.)

For me, it’s all about connecting. And I’ve been doing it for over 14 years.

Finding a small tribe of like minded weirdos is comforting, and I enjoy it.

So while I’m relatively new here, and I realize WordPress is a large site with scores of people who try to profit from, or make a living out of it…. I’m constantly dumbfounded by the amount of shadow bloggers who inhabit this space.

They like my post, sometimes they follow me…. when I know damn well they’ve never read a single word I’ve written.

Do they even exist?

 

blogging-meme1

 

Example.

 

jiyudrtf

 

This person (?) has 418 followers…

And 85 likes on a post that isn’t even a post.

WTH?

How can you like something that doesn’t exist?

(Okay, never mind… that’s fabulous.)

But please tell me what the point is here, because I’m confused.

Drive by likings.

Shadow followers.

Why?

 

 

Sorry, but these are just too good.

 

Yes… I’m knee deep in my Spam folder again.

Apologies, but this stuff is comedic gold.

I will right away snatch your rss as I can not find your email subscription link or newsletter service.

When I first read this, I thought it said he was going to snatch my ass because he couldn’t find an email link.

Hey, my blogs are good.

But not that good….

 

Sushi By 7-11

Hello everyone, it’s my first visit at this web site, and article is
really fruitful designed for me

While their appreciation of my fruit is noted, I’m not sure anyone who buys their Sushi at 7-11 can really be trusted.

I mean come on, their potato chips aren’t even fresh.

Who seems to be on the fence when it comes to my posts…

There are some attention-grabbing time limits in this article but I don’t know if I see all of them heart to heart. There may be some validity however I’ll take hold opinion till I look into it further

I really don’t see what the problem is.

I’m a frickin’ delight.

 

 

Epic advertising fail.

 

As I was strolling the local hardware store the other day,  I came across an item that was begging to be blogged about.

(Yes, I really heard it begging… so now I have to share.)

‘SnotTape.

 

IMG_4191

 

Let that sink in a moment.

And then visualize some over paid ad exec on Madison Avenue yelling, “Eureka! That new product? Let’s name it after snot!”

 

ewfij

 

I wasn’t sure where… or why they came up with that name, until I said it out loud a few times and realized it’s a contraction for “it’s not tape”.

Which, of course it is.

It’s tape.

So wth?

And because I’m a dedicated blogger, I did some research… which lead me to the heretofore unknown Professional Painting Contractors Forum. (Oh, the things I do for my readers)

While I agreed with this commenter’s review…

 

“Wouldn’t touch it simply based on the name. What a horrible advertising strategy.”

 

It was the next two responses that made me want to hire these contractors no matter what they charge.

 

I think, “Taint Tape”, would’ve been a catchier name, but whatever

 

And…

 

 

snot worth it.

 

Bravo Professional Painting Contractors Forum.

I agree.

But Snittens?

Now there’s a product worth having.

We all hate spell check, I get it.

But sometimes it makes me laugh….

And laugh hard.

Witness this morning when I was cruising WordPress with my iPhone and commenting on a post.

This post  to be exact.

The author is funny as Hell, and as I was replying about her desire to send her cat and dog (who constantly try to trip her) to Fuckoffistan…

Spell check came up with this :

What?

You mean there really is a Fuckoffistan?

And I was spelling it incorrectly?

Damn.

You really do learn something new everyday.

Let’s talk about Spam….

I have to admit, WordPress’s spam catcher is pretty effective.

Although, come on….

 

jhgyeuwi

 

They could have let that through.

So it never ceases to amaze me how many people and companies keep trying. I mean, yes… practice makes perfect.  And kudos to them for their tenacity, but today I had 33 spam messages trapped.

33.

6 of them from the pretty guinea pig.

Damn…

That’s a disturbing thought.

Then there’s this cryptic example.

Research – good research is significant to buying
a reliable dress. With the drive comes the need of creation. It is unachievable
to “make” others happy, in but the. That is, as long as you follow that will. http://pro-social.ru/bitrix/redirect.php?event1=&event2=&event3=&goto=http://aidanharris.com/__media__/js/netsoltrademark.php%3Fd=cuci.today

 

While I agree buying the right dress may require a little extra effort…

They lost me with  “It is unachievable
to “make” others happy, in but the. That is, as long as you follow that will.”

Maybe making others happy in the but is achievable.

Don’t scoff, everyone needs a life goal.

I was a little disappointed to see this flagged as Spam –

Then there are the never ending, non stop online casino ads.

Yes, the enemy team got Baron Trump, because really… who wants to deal with that dad on the sidelines?

I don’t remember the enemy strolling in and passing on. Let me ask my 4 other personalities and get back to you.

But…. help me out here. What does every tiny mistake need?

Even I can’t unpack that one.
