Dear Anonymous and Spammer

Anonymous :
I get it. You don't want anyone to uncover your super secret identity.

I get it....I really do.
Sometimes, I like to remain anonymous when I am prank calling folks. I use that super secret code and type it in on the cell phone where my number doesn't show up.
THEY NEVER SUSPECT A THING!!


So, as you can see I get it.
I REALLY DO!

However, what I do NOT get is . . . .
Why do you enter giveaways under "Anonymous"?
NO, I am not referring to ALL of you "ANONYMOUS" folks.
I know that some of you do not have your own blog.
That's fine.
You always leave me an email address so I can contact you.
BUT
I am talking to the ones that come here and leave nothing but . . .
"ANONYMOUS"
"Would really love to win!"

Does that make sense?
I mean...
If I were to say "ANONYMOUS", You are the winner.
Who would answer me?

Oh, but thanks for the comment!
I do love me some comments.
Anonymous or not

Spammers:

It stinks.
Doesn't it?
(leaving a comment on a blog where they go into moderation)
You can keep trying.....
Really, I don't mind.
BUT JUST KNOW THIS:
Your spam will never make it's way to my blog.
I love the "Reject" button.
LOVE IT!

Why are they bothering with comment moderation in place? That's just wasted time.

OMGness... I am having the exact same problem with "Anonymous" and their SPAM comments lately... they keep trying and trying but at last, they will never get through. You would think with them trying week after week with no success they would go away, but no. Each day I go to moderate comments and there they are. I guess at least they are persistent in visiting my blog. Bwah!

I've only ever had one spam comment and that was last week

I'm not popular enough to get the spammers... =)

I have the same problem. Except I don't have anything to reject the spam comments, I just mark them spam and then they don't show up on my blog. I have to manually do everyone of them. I get about 100-200 a day...ugh!

Isn't the spam annoying? I've been making with the reject button myself this week. And my spammers leave spam in French. What's up with that? I hated that class in college.

I have a confession to make.
I have entered other blog giveaways, and somehow managed to misclick, and post anonymously. Woops.

Really, I don't think some people really "get it". Who knows!

I wanna slap my forehead when I get an entry for a giveaway that it labeled Anonymous with no email addy...seriously...and I had one with a well thought out answer too...:)

My favorite are the ones that go a little like this.
"Nice blog - why don't you advertise my website where I do it better than you."
Um. . . thanks. REJECT

This is a good one because I TOTALLY agree! Anonymous, brother, what's the point?

Chelle on November 14, 2009 at 11:32 PM said...

Why do they even bother, lol!

I hate it when I have a giveaway. They leave their name. They have a profile. But it's not activated. No email left. Nada.

Waste of my time--and theirs :)

And you et an account on Twitter?
