State of the Quilas, 4-27-2013

I discovered something this week: my geographical readership status is updated not only weekly and monthly, but quarterly as well. Which means Quilas is one quarter of a year old! I might switch to quarterly status updates, going forward. I have to think about it.

Anyway, with no further ado, here is: State of the Quilas!

INTERNATIONAL READERSHIP

This week’s International Readership update probably looks similar to that of two weeks ago, but it’s not. Mexico and the United Kingdom were added this past week. Oh yes, and this is a quarterly map!

SPAM

Now, onto the best of this week’s spam! You will notice that between April 24th and 26, the ability to rate spam messages was removed. I wonder why.

I know what you’re thinking: That’s not spam, it’s fan mail! But no, the site it links to has this in the Bio: “Delicately, softly, catchy moving moving company house removals moving company removal company movers move removal company”.
It’s for a moving company.

So says the I Ching.

Why, thank you! Feel free to comment any time.

Yes. Yes it will.

FAN MAIL

This comes from a comment I made elsewhere:
quilas-fan-mail-0424-1216
Thanks for reading! You misspelled ‘shmnyc’.

quilas-fan-mail-0425-1215
That wasn’t me. You misspelled ‘shmnyc’ again.

Here’s another old one I found.

Sorry about the short attention span, Anonymous.

Thus ends another Quilas roundup. Until next time!

State of the Quilas, 4-20-13

I am going to combine the weekly spam update with the international readership update, into one weekly Quilas update. I’ll also throw in anything else I think will enthrall you. This week, I have fan mail!

So with no further ado, allow me to present: State of the Quilas!

INTERNATIONAL READERSHIP

This week in International Readership, we add Austria! A German friend of mine told me once “The Austrians are amazing people: They have the entire world believing that Hitler was German and Mozart was Austrian!” So, welcome Austria!

Wasn’t that some rattling good spam? Now, onto the fan mail.

FAN MAIL

Some of these go back a couple of weeks; I was going to write a different piece using them, but I never got a round tuit. Most of them are from someone named Anonymous.

DUHHHHHH, indeed!

Think before you type!

evg-fan-comment-0401-1229
Thanks, Anonymous!

This Anonymous responds to himself. How annoying!

So I hope you enjoyed this little foray into the netherworld of Quilas. As I told Big Brother on the other forum: Thanks for reading! Tell your friends!

Spam and Eggs

As anyone with a blog knows, a significant number of comments are received by spam-bots. Until now, I’ve been deleting them. Today (April 12), however, I received one that I had to post, which gave me the idea that I should post all of them! Of course, I only had Thursday night’s and Friday morning’s at that point, so it’s a small start.

It’s probably a good idea to post them as screen shots, though. If I post the text, future spam bots will know these were posted, and I’ll be inundated. I had to reorganize things to make them fit, too, so the sender’s URL and email address is gone, and the post being responded to is beneath the comment, instead of off to the right of it.

Enjoy!

Rattling Enthusiastic!
