The Spam Monster

This is for all of you have come under the threat of the spam monster. It has been quite a problem recently for several bloggers, our well intentioned comments not appearing on blogs…. So I wrote this little poem with that and Halloween in mind. The Spam Monster It’s all hallows eve, You’ve no time for a pet peeve, The wretched spam monster making curds, Of your well thought out words.   He insidiously turns your comments into mush, Sweeps them all away with a hot-wired brush, He’s all wires and circuitry, His gadgetry puts you into purgatory.   But, don’t fret, don’t worry, help is at hand, The Happiness Engineers Askimet band, Party together, they’ll help you out. No need to storm, stamp, and shout!   Stick your perky pumpkin by your computer, Light it with a ferocious candle to neuter, That bloody spam monster with his big hooter, Mr snooty, snotty, snooper. © Marjorie Mallon 2016 – aka, Kyrosmagica. All Rights Reserved. If you need any help with this problem Hugh has written a great post how to contact the Askimet engineers – here’s the link: Hughs Views And News: What To Do If your Comments Are Ending Up in Spam Folders Bye for now, Hope you liked the silly poem!
