Today was a day for Gus to be nice to Julie and lick his head which is always sweet
for as long as it lasts. Most of the time it ends with a big bite, but since Gus is running low on teeth these days I suppose it isn’t that bad. And to be fair, he gives a special meow from across the room when he decides to do this, so Julie could bolt if he really cared to. In fact some times Julie even comes on his own and ducks his head for him.
While this is sweet and all, the blog itself seems to be under attack by spammers. WordPress finds them all, but it still is annoying to blast a few hundred each day. Plus I was taking unwarranted pride in having more real comments than spam, but no longer.
The other ominous turn is that these spam messages have a little mean streak in them:
I drop a comment each time I especially enjoy a article on a site or if I have something to add to the discussion. It is caused by the passion communicated in the article I read. And after this post Julie Returns | ThreeCatYard. I was actually excited enough to post a comment I actually do have a few questions for you if it’s okay. Could it be simply me or do some of the comments come across like they are written by brain dead people?
That’s sort of uncalled for, especially from a mess of people from Poland with assumed names who have nothing to do but send the same email to this blog.
I believe what you said made a lot of sense. But, what about this? what if you added a little information? I ain’t suggesting your information is not good, but suppose you added something that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean Julie Goes Forth | ThreeCatYard is kinda plain. You ought to glance at Yahoo’s home page and note how they write news titles to grab viewers to open the links.
Oh, it’s ON now. Let’s look at this great Yahoo title science:
California governor unveils ambitious water plan
Wow, this title really pulls you in. I imagine this plan is much like all other California water plans. Step 1: Find someone with water. Step 2: Steal it and bring it to California.
Note that I was too polite to mention that the capitalization of the title is totally wrong, English wise. Consider yourself refuted, Polish Spammer.
