That Was Close!

I for whatever reason checked my e-mail junk folder this morning and saw a message from WP. My card had expired and I am up for renewal. I updated the card successfully and paid my subscription, it will auto renew so you will all have to put up with me until 2021.

I guess I should do some sort of evil genius laugh right about now, Mwa ha ha ha ha!

I think I will make sure messages from WP get through from now on. I had recently dropped the hammer on spam because I was getting so much of it. If anyone tried to contact me I swear I wasn’t ignoring you!

Umm, little trick I found while investigating my spam problem, if you use Outlook it makes a huge difference if you go to settings and take yourself off of the accepted senders list. The spammers figured out that little loophole and are sending you messages from yourself. But the entire thing is disguised from some sort of strange address. No matter how many times I sent a spammer to the junk file they kept getting through. Not anymore. Sneaky bastards. My spam problem is a very slow trickle now compared to a dump truck load daily. That is todays other FYI   🙂

  1. There are guys I send to spam and the find a way to still email me. Now those are senders who laptops should be confiscated.

  2. Had a Spam sandwich the other day. Quite tasty. 🙂

  3. I use GMail and can recall only one or two emails getting through (on my “blog” account) that shouldn’t have. IMO, they have a very excellent filtering system.

    P.S. Edible spam? UGH!

    • Well, the words do always get stuck in my teeth every time I eat it. 🙂

    • Heh, just because it is marketed as edible does not always mean it is. 😉

      I went and made a G-mail account because I had heard they had good spam control, but then I found that little trick of removing yourself from mails sent by you, and it cleared up my Outlook problem. Had that not worked I’d probably be going through the long tedious chore of changing my e-mail addys all over the damn internet…
