  1. Quite a list there. I would add the millions of fish, alligators, turtles and dolphins floating down Bolivian rivers, killed by extreme cold temperatures seldom seen in that part of the world.

  2. Oh, hello? Whut? Whut? I, er, spaced out there for a few hours.... Forgot to take an antihistamine last night. Not pretty. Huh? WTF is up with all this? Why isn't this stuff blinking neon on the AP wire? Do they have an extra planet up their sleeve they're just omitting to mention? Are they in some form of nightmarish denial? ARE THEY SPACE LIZARDS?

    I felt strongly enough about your link to go put it on Max's comments thread for you. Lots more people will see it there than here... but... well... I think I have NOT had enough coffee. Pouting about being out of half and half and resisting going to the local store for their FUCKING IMMORTAL ultra-pasturized crap... but, dammit, it's fucked up to drive thirty miles just for actual regular half and half in your coffee. So I caved. Monday I will have more things to get accomplished in town and I'll just suffer until then. After I get back I will take the crap I have left over and go pour it over the store manager's head... see if she takes my hint THAT way....

    I bet I will be sentient enough to add yer link to my post any minute now.

  3. Man,

    it sure is being tough on the fish!

    Could this be the indication of a strong La Nina this winter?

  4. Hey! It didn't dump you into spam! You made a link and it let you not be spam. Now if they will just do this for OUD and others, I will be happy.

  5. Hoping it stays that way.

    Did you have to un-spam OUD's comment above?

    Seeing it embolden me to try it again.

  6. Yes. I had to fish him out of spam. I hope he didn't get all huffy and go away mad.

  7. Bolivia elected a populist socialist, so msm doesn't consider it worth mentioning. (Can't let the sheeple feel sympathy for an enemy of capitalism.)

  8. What? fish it out of spam? It worked fine from this end. Showed up immediately and link was a link.

  9. I think it fakes people out. It lets them think their comment is there when it really isn't until I fish it out of the spam filter. It's a new feature, and only SOME of us have been burdened with the Beta. They are going to put it on everyone's blogs. People with much in the way of commenting on their blogs better damn well have their thing set to email them whenever anyone comments or train themselves to go to the filter fifty times a day... or there are apt to be some pissed off visitors....

  10. Wow, so sometimes the person making the post is the only one who sees it on the blog? LOL, that's quite a feature. I wonder if HomSec sees it.

  11. Just the first time. It looks to you as though it has posted, but it doesn't show up on the comment count and won't be there if you click back in later... until I fish you out of the spam folder. I get emails for all comments and try to respond to most of them, so I figure out pretty quickly where the comment got to and go get it... tell the spam filter you're not spam... and then everything is jake. EXCEPT it was determined that BB2 was spam all day yesterday... but only his comments with links in them. It's kittiwompus and I don't know if it will continue to distain your links or if it's getting the hang of this yet. Might be they plan to make it that the first time someone posts a link in a comment it automatically go to the spam filter so we can tell the filter if it's spam or not spam. Whutever. I feel secure that they will be happy to aggravate the snot out of us for however long we will take it. I'd like to be wrong, but Google is now Evil and I don't think they will be coming back from the dark side. I think Fudd got to them.

  12. How about an address, not made clickable?

    Money got to them. Under Capitalism, money is power.
    Under any ism, power corrupts.

  14. the unclickable made clickable

    I don't WANT comments that don't work with the html code put in for people. You would be amazed at how many people CANNOT get the hang of copying and pasting... and it's a hassle for everyone else too.

    Quit spreading the FALSE meme about power corrupting. Ain't so of necessity and ain't so in decent people. So spreading that OLD meme is only helping to make it so.

    ReplyDelete
  15. And you should try to make clickable links some more, say, again tomorrow, to check if the spam filter has pulled itself together....

    ReplyDelete
  16. So what corrupted google? Were they never decent people from the start?

  17. Pressure from fascists. Same as the politicians. Probably a shitload of them hopped onto the board as soon as they could, but also just plain old excuses for advantages happened to them. Their slogan should have been Don't Be Evil Unless the Murderating Fucks Want Yer Shit and Get Heavy.

  18. Another disaster not making it into the MSM:

    Forest fires in Brazil

  19. I Think it now thinks I am non-spammish!

    ReplyDelete
  20. From my latest comments at your horse post it looks like multiple links in one comment are still being sent to the spam grinder.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Well those forest fires in brazil were from eleven years ago, so probably the media frenzy has died down!

    I just hope they don't intend to make each blogger wade through and vet everyone for their damn filter forever.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh - did I grab a bad link?

    It was on the news this morning - forest fires now.

  24. 75% of the oil is gone!

    Gone Here

    (I've not been able to get the Alex Higgins link to load - it flashes the front page and then redirects for an infinite time with a blank page and no results)
