New Spam Filter

The spam filter on the new version of our hosting software seems extra sensitive today, having mistakenly bagged comments by Expat and Phideaux. I reset the status when I see this, so your words will get through. Nothing any of the commenters are doing wrong that I can see.

Seeing that can reminds me that this junk was always left over at the end of the Boy Scout campouts, of course. Some parents hadn't yet realized that their kid wasn't gonna eat it. Throwing the cans into the closing bonfire and waiting for them to explode was an actually rewarding use for the stuff. Sometimes a Scout would get nailed by the projectile meat, to everyone else's thrill.

I turned off the spam filter. It hadn't managed to flag a single real spam comment, but was marking multiple good comments as spam.

So back to doing the spam by hand. We're only getting 2 or 3 a day. So not really a big deal.

Re Virtual in Carnate's comment, as Dave Barry used to say, "projectile meat" would be a great name for a band. I'll go out on a limb here and say it would be a heavy metal band.

Spam, the meat that lasts forever. It's appropriate the internet named it's file for unwanted things SPAM. My mom had 50 year old cans of it when we were cleaning out her house of 52 years. She was not happy when we donated the cans to the local landfill.

When I was little I remember Mom would randomly declare nights off from preparing dinner. Which meant Dad had to "cook" for us. And that meant fried Spam sandwiches for all.
