This is just a quick post to apologize to anyone who tried posting a comment that might have got caught up in the spam/ham net that this Akismet device supplied here on wordpress blogs to try to help catch unwanted comment nuisances. Because some folks do try to use blogs to sell their products.
I just noticed the stats say this device caught ex amount of hams .Sheeze as far as i knew hams was those salty pork things some folks carved up on tables at Christmas time . I hadn’t yet learned that hams is something that might not be spam which in modern day terms is short for spam-mail, and instead might be some legitimate comment that this device Akismet wasnt quite to sure about.So it capture these comments anyway,and waits awhile for your decision.
Anyway i cant work out how to retrieve these ham mails ,as far as i can tell it seems this Akismet device has already deleted these ham-mails.The problem being i don’t always sign into my blog everyday , in which case i didn’t even notice until now that these hammy thingy-me-jigs had even existed .
Anyway im still learning by blindfold how to feel my way around all these fancy knobs and buttons and whiz-bangs that are available for our use on these wonderful word-press blogs . Its my own lack of knowledge that’s at fault here , im still learning what boxes i need to tick , and what other boxes i need to un-tick etc.
So if somebody commented and noticed their comment disappeared ,it went in the ham-mail filter, im sorry . It was a mistake . I’ve now spied the existence of this ham-mail and tried my best to tick all boxes needed so i will get a message or something to let me know ham-mail has arrived, and i need to do something to help Akismet decide whether its ham or spam ,before the system decides itself to simply delete it .
Crikey ! man this fancy new technology puts old farts like me through some steep learning curves . When i went to school we didn’t have any Akismet thingy-me-jigs that captured spam or ham , shucks in them days even those fancy ball point pens that looked lots like pregnant jumbo jets and you needed giant hands to try to grab onto with all the many selections of colours ,was kinda quite new technology in them days. And so when ever any people mentioned spam or ham we only got hungry and our tummys rumbled and tongues started a drooling .
Anyway just wanted to try to explain … Spam Spam Spam Spam Spam Spammmmmm ! ohh how i hate freaking spammmm !! Spam Spam
