Kick, kick, kick
I've been peppered with spam lately and today was so bad that I decided to disable anonymous comments.
First however, I went into the comments area to remove the tedious, nasty things, got distracted, and came back to see a screen full of the drivel and clicked to remove the lot of them.
So far, so good. Except, I hadn't gone into the spam folder aaarrrgggghhh so I've just removed all the lovely comments which I really appreciate - they were all from kind, genuine people.
In the past I've scrolled down to check, but after looking through 1000s of the time-wasting, moronic and sometimes downright offensive things I tend not to bother nowadays. I'd never found a genuine comment which had snuck into the spam folder. So I just click and remove in bulk.
Real people make the effort to craft a thoughtful response and pfft, just like that - gone. Grrrrrr.
I don't suppose they're in a bin somewhere that I can retrieve them from?
Sigh. Sometimes crap happens.
