Pa has been wondering why some blogs have Word verification as well as all sorts of moderation tools to monitor the comments page... In the previous post, someone spammed us with some really stupid message.
Pa wonders WHY PEOPLE BOTHER. Not only is it irritating, it does nothing for your product.
Pa recieves something like 1 valid email with 120 spam emails. He spends the first couple of hours a day simply deleting emails. He has tried some spam control tools, but occasionally loses a couple of fairly important emails.
So he turns off the feature and looks at the sender and email subject title.
I personally think companies that distibute such information like selling emails and sending spam mails should be fined severely. Many people who respond to the email's unsubscribe function find themselves having even MORE spam because then the spammer knows that the email address is actually being checked.
Sigh... the heart of a human can be a hard cruel thing.
Now, Pa is stressed over whether he should invest $3500 on a Banner at an AVA website. Do any of you guys actually click on Banners and Logos of companies? How effective are Banners and Logos on websites?
Anyway, Kaylie has certainly grown bigger... and soon she'll be able to out-run me. Hopefully she will still play with me. Next time we're going to look at our old photos and laugh about it!
