Feeling Like Crap & Online Spam

Yesterday which was Monday, I woke up with a cold. I know if you eat right... blah, blah, blah, you will not get a cold. But a lot of people eat right and still get ill. Anyways, it didn't help that I was a bit tired. Well the fact that I stayed up past midnight didn't help anything either. But I had to work a bingo which was a drag. There was one point during the bingo in which is just felt like immobile in a sense of body just shutting down. It's something I never experience before. EVER!!! At least I think I never experienced that. I guess not wearing the proper clothing in this coldish weather helps people catch a cold. If you can believe it or not, I am still wearing shorts and sandles. You might call me foolish or strange for doing so. But hey, I always go as long as I can in shorts. Call me crazy but that is how I am.
=======================================================
Lately, I have seen spam on a few blogs that I read. Why do people spam? Does it make them feel any better about themselves. Or are they just out to WHORE (sorry for such an ugly word) a product, service, or their own blog. It's like people are desperate for hits to a site, blog, and what not. It's not like their lives will become anymore enriched when they spam. If some people got paid to spam then they would of course be millionaires. Someone would be insane to pay someone to spam online. But of course, someone would have cruel intentions if they paid someone to spam.

Even on some message boards that I go on, I see spam on a regular basis. I think, why do people spam? It's not like you are going to accomplish anything by it. It's like they have no shame in spamming. They spam without thinking twice. I mean does a person have that much time on their hands that they feel the need to spam? It just makes you wonder.

There are ways to filter out spam. But of course, it's not all fool proof. Some spam can slip through the radar which is understandable. Then we as a site, blog, or whatever type of administrator have to take the appropriate measures and precautions to ensure that the spam is removed. I know it might take an extra five minutes of your day to remove a bit of unwanted spam. But what's five minutes when you are removing some objectionable spam like porn and other offensive and non offensive spam. But people will always try to find ways around the spam blocking and filtering if they try which is the sad thing.

But I digress, we will always find spam online no matter where we look. It's just that some people will refuse to ignore it, while others do something about it.
