What Did I Do To Deserve This?

F9D03D15-0CCE-4B18-8EC2-B4A8A67CAA61Okay, I started getting a bunch of comments from porn sites on my blog a few days ago. I don’t know why such comments would start showing up because I never ever look at porn on my iPhone. You believe me, don’t you?

Anyway, here are just a few of the “enticing” taglines that are contained in those comments:

  • Young Heaven – Naked Teens & Young Porn Pictures
  • Sexy teen photo galleries
  • Teen Girls Pussy Pics. Hot galleries
  • New sexy website is available on the web
  • Daily updated super sexy photo galleries
  • Nude Sex Pics, Sexy Naked Women, Hot Girls Porn
  • College Girls Porn Pics

Apparently someone thinks I’m into teenage girls. I will admit that I was into teenage girls — when I was a teenager half a century ago!

The good news is that all of these comments went into my spam folder. Still, I got tired of having to go through a few dozen spam comments one by one to make sure that no legit comments inadvertently got swept up into my spam folder.

So I went to my WordPress settings, and in the “Discussion” tab, added the word “porn” to my comments blacklist. Now all those porn related comments go directly to trash and I can delete them en masse without going through them individually. I still get about two dozen such comments in my trash folder each day, but I can permanently delete them with just one click.

So why am I telling you this? Just to let you know that if you include the word “porn” in a comment to any of my posts, your comment will go right to my trash folder and will never get read by me.

Darkest Before the Dawn

“What does that have to do with the price of eggs?” Doris asked her husband.

“Well, I’m just saying that we have your aunt’s funeral later today and I know how much she meant to you,” George responded. “So I just wanted to say some encouraging words to make you feel better.”

“By throwing out a meaningless platitude? Really, George?” Doris said.

“Never mind. Did you remember to pick up my suit from the cleaners?” George asked. “Plus your black funeral dress?”

“I did, but I’m not going to wear that boring black dress,” Doris said. “I’m going to wear that green, shimmery dress. It’s so much more chic.”

That’s rather bold of you, don’t you think? This isn’t a party, you know, it’s a funeral,” George said. “Wearing a party dress to a funeral would be adding insult to injury.”

“Yet another platitude, George? Well, I’m wearing that green dress nonetheless,” Doris said. “I’m sick of going to funerals, so let’s show up and split early and you can take me dancing at the club, where we can dance until dawn.”

Written for today’s Three Things Challenge from Di at Pensitivity101, where the three things are “bold,” “split,” and “party.” Also for these daily prompts: Ragtag Daily Prompt (dawn), Your Daily Word Prompt (platitude), Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (suit), Daily Addictions (plus), Word of the Day Challenge (chic), and The Daily Spur (injury).

FOWC with Fandango — Suit

FOWCWelcome to October 10, 2019 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). It’s designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt.

I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).

Today’s word is “suit.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments.

The issue with pingbacks not showing up seems to have been resolved, but you might check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. You will marvel at their creativity.
