Thankful Thursday

Hi (Furry)furriends ❤

We have a major thing

to be thankful for

…today…

When we opened

…our blog…

it said that we had

88 messages

…in three minutes…

????!!!SAY WHAT!!!????

We have never had

…so many replies…

on our bloggie

at least not

…in such a short time…

so we opened the bell….

and saw immediately that the

Akismet

hasn’t been able

to save us from so many

…spammers…

and we started to DELETE

…them all…

and the more we deleted

…the more came back…

…we thought that we were

victims of the Cyber attack of

last weekend

…in Europe…

well…

…in a way we were…

spam attacked…

and we got rid of it all…

after Granny threw them away

into the dustbin…

…immediately…

…paw by paw…

…manually…

and it took about an hour…

before we accomplished…

but we did…

YAY!

Wait…

before I go…

I almost forgot…

to tell you…

…how Thankful we are…

that this didn’t had

further consequences…

…to our blog or laptop…

besides of Granny’s wrist…

…that feels like a RSI now

with all that clicking

…away…

…and…

Thank you all for being here

…today…

Click on the badge

and see where my furriends

are Thankful for

today and always…

    Ouch! My wrist… errr… paw is hurting in sympathy with Granny’s paw! Naughty spammers. Not like you, Binky. Sweet, patient and truly wise little creature that you are… Sending both of you lots of hugs and kisses….

    What a nuisance…we get lots of junk real mail too…straight in the recycling. Glad Granny managed to sort it though, with your help, of course! Lots of love to you 🙂 xxx

    So infuriating. One wishes one could respond by pressing a ‘Pest Spray’ button which would direct a suitable dose of insect killer at the spammers.

    tell Granny I had that same problem with my email once. I had to MANUALLY put in each address to block them (I had HUNDREDS) in my email and they wouldn’t stop. Also, the Blogger Blogs (yours is WordPress so don’t understand why you got so many unless you clicked on something unknowingly), always get them. I have gotten 100s on Cody’s at various times. When my email was hacked I have no idea what I clicked on. Glad you got it cleared up.

    I follow you daily, but seldom comment. Glad you were not attacked by ‘evil,’and were able to get rid of the stinkers. Love your site and you, kitty, are lovely and wise. Continued blessings. Elaine and the kitties at our house.

    I had some yesterday too… they said it is interesting what I wrote… yes, I know, but that is no reson to write the same comment 11 times…. maybe copy&past was out of control at the spammer-pc?

      “Interesting” is one of the words I added to my discussion settings which require comment mederation. Sometimes I catch the “good” guys, but I always check first before deleting.
