My Bad – My Apologies

29 Comments

Dear Blog Followers,

This is an open letter to all who have been following my blogs.

Recently, I put my blogs on “Private.”

When I decided to do this it was because I was going to be traveling for many weeks. A few weeks before my travels, I was experiencing a tremendous increase of SPAM. WordPress does have askimet which monitors SPAM. They go into my SPAM folder and are held there.

Then, I delete them. I was getting up to 25 SPAMS a day which meant that I had to go into the folder daily in order to ensure that they were deleted. My train of thought was that in the 3 weeks I would be gone the SPAM would be sitting in the folder causing who-knows-what. I decided to create the “Private” setting to avoid having them do something to my computers.

My Bad …

You see, it made it seem that I was being selective as to who could read my blogs. It wasn’t my intention. I can best explain it as this – It would be the equivalent of my leaving the doors to my home wide open and not expecting someone to go in and cause damage or theft.

These sneaky SPAMMERS were sending vile and graphic ‘XXX’ rated emails in addition to some offensive and appalling material that I prefer not to repeat. My plan on my return was to contact WordPress to inquire about the large amount coming through on my blogs.

My apologies to anyone who I may have been offended with the “Privacy” setting on my blogs. I hope you can understand my quandary about this SPAM issue.
I am back and hope to add more interesting posts for all of you to read and enjoy.

With Deepest Sincerity,
Isadora

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of whom I am no matter what venue I choose to express it.

  4. Well, Izzy, I’ve been away so long, I didn’t notice. So, no worries as far as I’m concerned. I have, however, noticed an increase in SPAM in my regular email and on my phone. What’s next, door-to-door sales people? 😉

  7. Great to see you back, Issy. I’m sure you had some good times on your travels. I have Akismet on my blog and it says it’s protected me from 15, 246 spam comments. I hardly ever get any spam, but occasionally some bloggers’ comments end up there and i have to rescue them. 🙂

  11. No worries, Isadora… always better to be safe than sorry! Spam’s an odd monster though – sometimes a trickle, other times a torrent!
    Hope you had a good time away!

    • SPAM is a pretty scarey thing. I’ve had so many virus’ in the past on my other computers.
      Although, I must admit that ever since I purchased Apple laptops and desk tops I’ve had none invade.
      Shhhh … let’s not give SPAMMERS any ideas. 😄
      I’m pleased to see you visiting, Tom. Hope to catch up with your 8 months to go goal. Still having cravings. LOL
      Have a GREAT week …
