Spam Monster

I’ve been invaded by Vikings.

Apparently I’ve been taken over by the spam monster who is sending some of my comments to your spam folder where they will be serenaded by Vikings but otherwise lead a lonely existence pining for the fiords. So if you’d be so kind and check if any of my humble Bon mots are languishing in Spamland I’d be ever so grateful.

I will now go and find Hugh’s advice on exorcising forced meat….

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published three books - Dead Flies and Sherry Trifle, My Father and Other Liars and Salisbury Square. In addition I published an anthology of short stories, Life, in a Grain of Sand this summer. A fourth book will be out soon. This started life as a novel in a week on this blog and will follow later this year. I blog about all sorts at geofflepard.com and welcome all comments. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

    But the upside is we get the Spam Song! This happened to me a while ago – if you get hold of the WP help people they are usually pretty good.

    You have successfully evaded my spam folder, though really it’s not all that bad a place to be. Apparently, I write content that could go viral any day now and that many a reader will be telling their brother/cousin to check me out.

    The Vikings have not landed in my spam but undoubtedly that’s because of the long, long voyage. To my memory, they only landed in Greenland and possibly Canada.

    Once somebody unspams you, it seems you stop going into their spam folder. That’s what I found out, anyway. Let me know if you need any further help with this.

  11. I don’t believe you’re alone, Geoff. A couple people I’ve tried to contact most likely have me in Spam too. Hope they ALL read you post.

  15. I don’t believe so but I’ll check. I’ve had this happen with other bloggers but not consistently. That’s my main issue with this. If it’s only occasionally, I obviously don’t know to look there.
