Didn't Want to do it...




Jerks have been posting inappropriate comments on my blog.


So now I am blocking anonymous comments and putting up word verification.


Didn't really want to do it.


But I knew it was in my future because of what my fellow bloggers have said before.


To my anonymous commenters (like my bro and dad)...please email me your comments.


My email is on my profile.


Thanks!

Isn't it SUCH a bummer when people hide behind their screens as "Anonymous," saying things that are rude, inappropriate and downright mean?

Losers.

RN Mama said...

I hate creepers. I haven't had any rude comments yet, but I'm afraid they will be coming, as I'm starting to get more traffic on my page. Hey, by the way, thanks for adding me to your sidebar of "nurses."

Beth E. said...

I've always considered those who leave anonymous rude and spiteful comments to be cowards....just sayin'.

I can't imagine why anyone would leave those type of comments for you. You are one of the kindest, most thoughtful people I know!

HUGS,
Beth

Valerie said...

What??? You??? Of all people...your posts, especially the delivery room stories, are always so kind-spirited...even "The Threat" was handled with diplomacy on your part!

I have never allowed "anonymous" comments b/c I just feel like if you are going to speak your mind than at least have the decency to sign your name!

Sorry that you have had to deal with rude and inconsiderate folks. Hope that this puts an end to that!

Have a great weekend (and be sure to visit tomorrow or on Sunday if you have the opportunity!)

I'll definately type in the code for you!
I've only had one rude comment but I hated the way it made me feel~exposed and red in the face :) I can't imagine a bunch of them but if I ever started getting them word verification is a small price to pay to make those people stay away!!

Just Breathe said...

Sorry to hear that. I've had a few recently but nothing bad. I haven't changed my settings yet but I do have comments moderated after 14 days and that has helped.
I seem to get weird ones on old posts. I will still comment here with WV.

I really don't understand people sometimes. So far, I've been very fortunate not to have received any distasteful comments...and I sure hope it continues.

~*Michelle*~ said...

shut the front door! I'm with Beth.....Who would have anything rude to say to you? unbelievable! GRRRRRRRRR!

Anonymous comments from people who are just hiding....weak. so weak and lame.

ps. I for one, enjoy word veri's....sometimes I get some funny ones....I just had "weiners" for one. ;)

mama's smitten said...

Ya know I was getting odd comment so stated moderating. It a little creepy huh!

He & Me + 3 said...

I know it is so annoying.

Mr. Daddy said...

Well if life gives you lemons, you just make lemonade....RIGHT!!!!

and sometimes W.V. definitions can be down right entertaining.

Or is it that I just have a weird sense of humor?????? LOL

W.V. hariums:
definition: plural anonymous commenters..

Orah said...

You mean I missed all the JUICY comments ... I have to spend more time reading the comment section. Well, guess it's too late on your blog. I don't understand people sometimes - were these adults?

Annie said...

well, that is just sad!!
those rude people better stay away from here now!

have a great weekend! :)

Mighty M said...

Ugh! I hope they stay away!!

Off to add my "gormef" so I can post this comment. :)

Firefighter/Paramedic said...

It's all Greek to me...oh wait...

Rachel said...

So sorry - mean people suck.

Haven't allowed anonymous commenters on our site since we've been spammed, and you know what happened to the one guy who TRIED to be mean in the comments. He's lucky our blog buddies didn't jump him, hee hee

Love ya - miss ya

renee said...

jerks. sorry buddy!

Tricia Nugen said...

Mean people suck! wouldn't you like to give them a huge shot of something to make them nice! What matters is how nice you are!

Shanna said...

There's always "that person" who has nothing better to do with their time!

Katie said...

Why do people do that? Is it really that cool to find a blog to post a random inappropriate comment on? Really? :(

It doesn't bother me to type in a word verification. It's so prevalent these days (which goes to show how prevalent rude people are these days, too!)

Shana said...

Ugh...sorry girl. I *knock on bloggy wood* haven't received but one ugly comment, but I do seem to attract the inappropriate links that are usually in Vietname's, ha! I'll endure the word veri's for ya...Me love you long time! (Sorry, couldn't help myself)

Jessica D. said...

gee, why are people so mean. nothing better to do i guess and it's easy to hid. but keep write. We love to hear your stories :D

christy rose said...

That is a bummer that it comes down to word verification, huh. Oh well there are worse things that I would do to be able to come by and comment here. :) I have it on my place too. It is kind of like a lock you put on your house and you give all of your friends the key. :)

Stacie, A Firefighter's Wife said...

I had to do the same thing. It is so annoying. I keep getting really weird stuff.

I don't mind typing in the code at all for you!

Morgan said...

My problems have been with people that actually have blogger ID's created ONLY for spamming people. Nice, huh?
