I am so extremely mad right now!
I can’t even tell you how mad. But, since this is a blog post, I will anyway. It wouldn’t be much of a post otherwise, you see.
So, as the eight of my faithful readers probably know by now, I am participating in this years Secret Santa Art Exchange on twitter (hosted by the wonderful Mishaweha this time). For this purpose (and because I thought it made one more post on the blog — which is good since I don’t seem to post much otherwise) I created a post with my references (i.e. to give the artist chosen to create the most awesome piece of art you’ll ever see — no pressure, though — a feeling for what the to-be-portrayed is like).
Now, this post was apparently not only viewed by the aforementioned artist (whoever it is), but also by some student at a college, who promptly commented. I don’t know which college they are from or what they study, but that is not the point here.
The point is that I am angry as hell!
Because this person’s comment, for absolutely no reason at all, landed in my spam folder!
As it turns out I helped them with their college assignment and the stupid algorithm put the comment right into my spam?
I mean, if you can’t even thank a fellow student for helping you out without it being considered spam, what has this world of ours come to?
Is a simple “thank you” a valid reason to land in someone’s waste bin now?
I am pissed, WordPress. And Akismet! Really pissed!
And as a form of protest, I will quote this comment RIGHT HERE! How do you like them Azeroth Apples?! (I had to sneak at least ONE link in there, didn’t I?)
However, because the link the commenter provided (no doubt to his project! Why should they thank me and link a random site, right?) seems to be of a rather personal nature, I will omit it. I’m sure they will appreciate the discretion.
Sorry for my bad english. Thank you so much for your good post. Your post helped me in my college assignment, If you can provide me more details please email me.
If this isn’t legit, I don’t know what is. My humblest apologies, user they call “Flight simulator games”. I hope your project is a success.For anyone who is immune to sarcasm (or my bad humour, really) or, for whatever reason, didn’t grasp it, this is not a real complaint. This is a Thank you to WordPress and Akismet who have protected my blog from any spam comments I got, and at the same time is a realisation post (and a warning) that spam bots have gotten really creative and will try any angle with you.
