AARRRRGGGGHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am SO frustrated right now!!!!! If you'll come a bit closer to the screen, you should be able to see me jumping up and down, beating the keyboard and steam rising from my head!!!
I'm screaming too but I was kind enough to turn the sound off so you couldn't hear it!
Here's what's going on......
I have got some of the best folks in the world reading my blog. They leave the sweetest, funniest, kindest most encouraging comments I've ever read in my life. I even have a folder on my computer where I store several of the comments so I can look at them when I'm feeling down or defeated and they are sure to lift my spirits.
BUT.......
I have attracted some................"spam" commenters who are just having a field day commenting stupid stuff and stuff that totally doesn't belong in print, much less my blog.
ANYWAY.....
I have had to go to comment moderation.
NOW I'm pleading that you all will continue to leave your comments. I love them. I NEED them. Just now, thanks to some butt heads (sorry) you have to be approved before they can be posted.

Some people have no business being on the internet...much less reading peoples' blogs and leaving spammy comments. Don't stress over it dear friend because at least there's a solution for it!! It could be worse! ;-) I'll be moving to self-hosted wp (hopefully come tax time) and I've heard that once they do that you can block their ip address because wp lets you see that.

This same thing has happened to me...I went to comment moderation today. I hate it...but there were some pretty inappropriate comments being left on my blog and I don't want my readers subjected to that! It's frustrating for sure!

I don't blame you for being upset. I wish I had the time the "crazy people" who hack and do this kind of thing do.
Hugs and prayers,

Bummer! Why do people feel they have to do that? Don't worry, I'll keep commenting! Hope they leave you alone now!

I'm getting some of the same crud. I've noticed it on some of my friends blogs. I'm not going to let it stop me.

I even have the security code thingy turned on and they are still getting through.

It is HIGHLY annoying!

You know I have that occasionally too...today it was "enlarging" yeah, whatever!!!! Luckily it's been on past posts, todays was in June, so I just go in and delete the comment....so frustrating!!!!
