I think it is Homer Simpson who says that, right?

The other day I turned comments moderation on. It had been off for quite sometime. I was under the mistaken impression that the comments would be e-mailed to me [some were] so that I could decide whether I wanted a particular comment posted or not. For whatever reason, I went to "Moderate Comments" on Blogger and whoa! 498 comments to be moderated. WHAT?!? Where did they come from???

Many have been sitting in "Moderate Comments" for almost two years! Yikes!!! I just spent over two hours going through them and publishing the ones that should have been published - a long, long time ago - and deleting all the junk and spam. No, I don't need Viagra or Cialis, thank you. I am not at all interested in "younghotsexygirls" or in "hotgayyoungstuds," either. I am not looking for a mortgage and I am not interested in making money at home. Two thirds of the comments that needed "moderated" were just junk and spam. Geez!

Interestingly enough, I had quite a few comments from "Anonymous" whoever he/she/they are and I am not going to post them. They were the usual, "All you do is complain about everything." Someone has read my blog "a few times" [a "couple" is two; a "few" is three or more] and says "there is nothing entertaining about it." If you weren't entertained the first or second time, why did you bother returning? That same person - in the same comment - tells me that I am a "bitter, arrogant, egotistical, materialistic, superficial, hateful and grumpy old woman." Au contraire, but I think perhaps it is you, "Anonymous," who is bitter, arrogant, egotistical, materialistic, superficial, hateful and old and you don't have your own blog to bloviate on and think you are going to be able to do so here. Wrong.
Another Anonymous said that I "use racist terms" and that my "writing is just venting hatred that I have for everything including my husband." Really? Point me to ONE single post where I have ever said anything remotely negative about my husband! Someone else - another "Anonymous" said that I am "hurtful and hateful and I should just move." Yeah. I'll take your advice under consideration, on a day that doesn't end in "Y." But you be sure to keep checking back to see if I'm gone, yet, okay?

Wow. With all those fabulous compliments I am glad "Moderate Comments" is on. However, if you were one of many commenter's whose comments never showed up on my blog it isn't because I didn't want your comment - it is because I thought they were all being e-mailed to me and only a some of them were - so you've sat in "Moderate Comments" for a long, long time, and for that I apologize. All the comments are now "moderated" and but for the "Anonymous" who want to spew their wrath at me, all have been posted. If you weren't posted at this point, you were deleted because you are a "Reject." This is my blog and I can giddily "Reject" or "Publish" whatever comments I want. Oh the power! I'm laughing now...


  1. chill lady!
    I like your blog! It is nice and informative.

  2. Thanks, Bobby. And I liked your post about 6 interesting things about you!

  3. I have become a more recent fan of your blog. I wish every American read what you are commenting on. It is really eye opening coming from an American female perspective. Keep up the good work.

  4. Hey,
    If I haven't told you in a while, I love your blog. I don't think you're the happiest person in the world, but I think you are probably a realist--not an optimist, nor a pessimist but someone who looks at life as it really is. I find that refreshing and your life in the Sandbox facinating; that's why I read your blog every day! Keep up the good work!

  5. you should also do the six interesting things about you as well Sabra!!!


  6. Bollo, Bobby and Gill - You are all sadly mistaken if you think there are SIX interesting things about me!

    Tracy Miller Quinn - Thank you for the kind words and encouragement. Don't worry, I'll keep this up for as long as I am able...

    Dawn-Michelle - So glad you are still visiting!!! What? I'm not the happiest person in the world? Sure I am. [Is there a "happiest person in the world?" And, although I may not be that person, I am, by no means, unhappy, either.]
