Come Monday...The Poop on Poop and Spam

“Come Monday…” is a weekly series that will involve a review of, or commentary about,  websites, movies, documentaries, television shows, sports, music, and whatever else may tickle my fancy at the time.  Be assured that these reviews will be generally positive, as in accordance to the Jimmy Buffett song “Come Monday.”  This is subject to change, however.  In fact, I would be most derelict in my duties to neglect going on a rant every once in a while.  For rants promote change, and change can be good—right?  Therefore, since good is generally considered as being a positive force in 99.3% of the parallel universes that I am aware of, even a rant could be considered as being something positive, and a genuine hissy-fit would be even better (so I’m told).

First of all, I would like to clear the air concerning any confusion over this being about pooping spam.  Although, one might wonder with all of it coming my way lately.

Hey, there have been some days when a total of over a hundred spam comments were left on several of my pieces on all three of my sites, and over 70% of them were getting through the Blogger spam filter.  Hence, the reason why I have started moderating comments after keeping the door wide open since the beginning of my online odyssey six years ago tomorrow.

Be assured that the door is still open to all legitimate comments.  It is arguable that anyone who would be critical of my “stuff” has to be illegitimate, though.

Alas, I was so excited the first time I saw where I had received a comment on one of my endeavors to persevere.  Nonetheless, I was somewhat confused about what selling T-shirts out of Portugal had to do with the theological matter being addressed in the article.

Hopefully, that clears the air of any lingering concerns over the spam issue.  So, let us get to the poop on poop—posthaste!

Yeah, I realize that many are of the opinion that it is an untouchable subject.  However, a big part of the intrepid reporter job description is to have a willingness to wade through the muck and mire until a story can be found.

Be assured that I hope I am not dumping too much upon you at once, but the poop on poop is that proper pooping really is an essential part of maintaining good health—especially for those suffering from cirrhosis of the liver.  For dangerous levels of ammonia can build up in the bloodstream if one does not watch what they doing.

Ironically, one often does not have a clue about what they are doing when those ammonia levels become too high.  For they slip into what appears to be a drunken stupor, and taking [Lactulose] helps to bring my beloved wife back to me.

Of course, there have been times when I have watered down her medicine in order to keep her being sweet, but that is another topic for another day.  (Yes, I am just kidding about watering down her medicine…kinda.)

Thankfully, she was finally approved for Medicaid.  For we were having to spend almost a $100.00 a week on just Lactulose, and that should now be down to less than $10.00!

She keeps insisting that I need to start taking the stuff.  Be assured that I have no idea why, but I have met several out here in cyberspace in desperate need of a good poop.

So, let me end this with a question that can now be heard being asked around mid-morning of most days in our home.  Have you pooped yet?

  1. Are you sure this subject couldn't have been better addressed on "Fishhawk Droppings?" ;-)

  2. if you set your comment setting for 'who can comment' to 'registered users - including open i.d.' that eliminates any anonymous comments. that is how 99% of spammers get through. the registered user setting forces someone to have a web i.d. (google, wordpress, facebook, whatever) that is linked to an email address. i rarely if ever get any spam. ever!

  3. Thanks for stopping by, my dear TWG!!! Yes, I have considered that option, but some of my most satisfying comments have come from those associated with the subject of an article and did not want to go through the sign-up process to receive an online identity. Furthermore, some of the most honest comments I have ever received on theological pieces have come from those who did not want to be identified. Subsequently, I would rather have to wade through dozens of spam comments than lose even one of those.

  4. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Gorges!!! Well, now that you mention it...

  5. I'm all set!!!! LOL I too have had lots more spam......gee whiz!

  6. I have a hundred a day from a Polish doctor who treats Lyme disease! Can you send a gunman to Poland?

  7. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Gloria!!! Um, but did you actually do anything while sitting on your throne? (LOL?)

  8. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Adullamite!!! It sounds like he could do with a good dose of Lactulose. For they don't even grow limes in Poland!

  9. I stopped allowing anonymous comments when spam started getting through the filters
    Glad to hear that Arlynda was approved for medicaid. what a difference that will make. I can't imagine 100 a week.

  10. Thanks for stopping by, my dear Ann!!! Yeah, with her medications, we were paying over $600 a month for about half of her prescriptions without health insurance, and none of mine were being filled.


Since the Blogger spam filter has been found sorely lacking lately, I will start moderating comments. Be assured that I am only interested in deleting spam. So, if you feel a need to take me to task over something—even anonymously, go ahead and let 'er rip, and I will publish it as soon as I can.
