The Ultimate Insult

So, last week I go to post some rambling blog post about my puppy, or how much Phil Hellmuth sucks, and Blogger tells me that my blog has been flagged by their automatic software as a "SPAM blog"...

"The ease of creating and updating webpages with Blogger has made it particularly prone to a form of behavior known as link spamming. Blogs engaged in this behavior are called spam blogs, and can be recognized by their irrelevant, repetitive, or nonsensical text, along with a large number of links, usually all pointing to a single site."

Wow - talk about a fuckin' insult.... Irrelevant, repetitive, nonsensical. That hurts. So, in true un-American fashion, Blogger declared me GUILTY until proven innocent, and took away my ability to post! The other problem is, they ignored my desperate emails pleas (insisting that although I may be irrelevant and repetitive, I am most certainly NOT Spam!) for four days. Now, however, one week shy of my 30th b'day, I'm back. Certified Unspamified. Whitelisted. Phew.

I guess I can't write "Do not fuck with Phil Ivey" three times in a row, or some process thinks I'm spam. And the patented Bobby Bracelet self link technique is also spam-escent. Even though I post a lot of pictures of my boy Oscar, I don't see how those could be read as SPAM...

Bones was just about to start an uprising at his French bank, out of RAGE at my being unable to post and fresh ramblings - and believe me - you do NOT want angry Frenchies raging against you Blogger!

So, Phil Hellmuth will get another day of reprieve, before I mercilessly tear him apart in a post soon to come.

until next time,

If they were as careful about who's sending out comment spam as they are about "fake blogs", perhaps I'd stop getting 40 fake comments a day, telling me all about internet gambling. . .

Glad to have you back. I've heard Phil has been a complete donkey on HSP - can't wait to read your take.

And when do I get to meet the pooch/donate my money to his feeding at a home game?

I can't believe I haven't been labeled the same thing yet.

"Sir, your gratuitous use of the words douchebag and retard have led us to believe you are an angry, bigoted, spambot! Enjoy being shut down."

I am so in love with your dog.

Blogger sucks. I have been flagged by some douchebags, as an "inappropriate site". Fuck them.

I trust you if you say this guy is a pussy. I love when me use the word pussy.

Oh, and as for turning 30...enjoy the hell out of it. I turned 30, bought a convertible sportscar, got drunk and had a fling with a pro athlete. Shit happens. Besides, men get better with age.
