The End Of Spam As We Know It...Thank You Wikinut!

Isn't it wonderful? Isn't it a joy? What? I hear you cry? Why, our Published pages of our creative work no longer sullied by Spam-filled adverts..Wikinut is a much nicer place to be now...And as I pondered this, I felt a poetic acknowledgement was in order from poetess, Songbird B...

The End Of Spam As We Know It...

Oh deep the joy that I now find,
as creative words within my mind,
flow easily from my fingered hand,
because I have no fear of Spam..

Now this is not a fear of meat,
within a tin that we could eat..
Of Ham and Pork that we once ate,
A dubious fodder on our plate.

No this indeed, not meant at all,
but of the adverts that would crawl,
across our work with no respect..
Left us frustrated and upset.

It took a while, but what a joy,
Deletion we can now employ..
The power of a single click..
and then we have got rid of it.

Oh Wikinut, you are to me.
so much improved, a Company..
Now we can Contact and Approve..
and nasty comments can remove..

So Thank You for giving us the choice..
and hearing our united voice..
An Acknowledgement from a grateful Poet..
For the End Of Spam as we now we know it.

Thanks Jerry..I remember your article on this and how much it frustrated us every time we found our pages subjected to Spam adverts..This is only a recent improvement but what a difference it has made already..

Thank you for looking in on me Carolan..Glad that you enjoyed it. I have been lucky so far, but I'm sure that they will try it on my pages too, but at least we have the ability to get rid of it now and that is a huge step forward for us. I have been on Wikinut almost a year now and we have had to put up with so much of it..

I used to have a sinking heart opening up my pages sometimes David, to see if they had been spoilt by Spammers..I know we have waited a while for this improvement, but Wikinut really has stepped up to the mark, and I just wanted to acknowledge that in my own poetic style. .Great to see you on my page..

Isn't it great Rich? So far I have actually had no Spam to delete, though that is tempting fate now..lol..But just so good to now have that option. Wikinut really have come trumps in this for us..

Songbird what a hoot! I agree wholeheartedly, especially as I tended to get the 'erectile enhancement' spam. Really now!

Hi Rich! That Star was actually a complete shock to me! lol..I had edited and published, and yet STILL manage to miss an error..Songbird's lesson for today..'Must be more vigilant!' Now re-edited and republished, it picked up a shiny Star along the way..Am chuffed to bits!

We are all very grateful, and thanks for expressing it as only you can Songbird. I have to say, though, that I had two new articles published overnight, and at the end of one there's a long spam message.

It gives a real sense of power doesn't it Denise just on clicking on Delete...lol. I just thought how much nicer all our work looked not having to scroll through stacks of Spam. I got hit with it when I first joined here and was really upset about it..I had even thought of finding another site, yet thanks to you and so many of my friends on Wikinut, I stayed the course and am so glad that I did..

Hello Buzz! I am so glad that Wikinut heard us and brought this in. Like all sites, it takes time to sort out all the niggles that perhaps they had never thought would arise, but I know that everyone of us appreciates the improvements. Onward and Upwards as they say..

Our Spam was constant advertising Ivy, and you could be hit three or four times. It spoilt our pages and was so disrespectful to our work..I do not miss it at all...lol

Ah, the creativeness that we poets must come up with to create rhyme and rhythm CTP.. Spam (food source) was always a bit hit or miss. You either liked it or hated it.. They have tried to relaunch it recently but not to great success as far as I know..lol

well so glad I am new enough to wikinut to not have experienced the pre-comment control phase...I have a blog and spam is the bane of my existence. I cannot figure out what they get from it. does anyone actually buy anything from the spammers?? Great piece and made me chuckle too :)
