Fylde Coast Musings vs Cyprus Life – in pictures

Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas at the beginning of March 2004 and spent the next glorious 12 years in Limassol, Cyprus. Sadly, in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We now live on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea just across from Fleetwood. More places to discover and capture on camera!

no more spam

More chopped ham with pork, sir?


Well, I think I’ve seen it all now!
I woke up this morning to a new follower and more spam from that follower.

This is the second day I’ve deleted their SPAM from my blog comments so you would have thought they may have worked out that their comments are not going to get published…. but no, last night they decided to try a different method becoming one of my blog followers and still tried to post a comment.

Of course it got deleted and today I’ve sent them a polite email:

Thank you for following my blog at http://www.CyprusLifeinpictures.wordpress.com but please note any comments which are not relevant or contain spammy advertising links as I have received from you over the last 2 days will be reviewed and deleted.
No comments are published without first being reviewed by me so basically, if you are trying to advertise your site by posting useless comments – you are wasting your time so perhaps you will want to “Unfollow” my blog.
Many thanks

  1. Some of these spammers sure are persistent aren’t they? You think they’d get the message if you don’t allow their comments on the blog but no.

    • Usually I just delete them from the Akismet spam collector but every so often they get up my nose and I add them to my list of culprits…
      This one was just so stupid it had to be added! It spammed me previously and then had the cheek to add and “follow” my blog, then stick another spam post on it 😐
      Maybe I will spam their website and see how they like it?
