Abject IMPORTANT Apologies…

Note from Grammy: I want you all to know that I have been played for a fool, and worse, I have passed along the wrong information to all of you. I am so very sorry for this, and want you all to know that it was an honest mistake.

All of those cute little comments that I translated from the Chinese characters, were accurate translations of those Chinese characters BUT if someone happens to click on the underlined periods AFTER the characters, it will take you to sites you DO NOT want to go to!!! 

I accidentally clicked on that area while trying to copy and paste a section into the translator, and it went to another site. I checked a few more of those underlined period parts on other comments, and the same thing happened. Even on the comments that had SEEMED appropriate on my Bible Study Blog, the underlined period area went to BAD sites!

I want everyone to know that I am so very sorry for giving everyone the wrong information about those comments, and if you get comments that have a string of periods that are underlined, I would suggest that you delete them immediately! I have cleaned them ALL off of anywhere on my blogs, and think that the new spam filter should catch anymore that show up.

Please forgive me … I am horrified by all of this! Grammy... cleaning up a polluted Corgi Country...

Message from me to Chinese readers:  I do NOT appreciate those people who have been using my blogs to connect to bad sites!  From now on, my spam blocker will be on and I will check even the parts with the underlined periods.  If I find any such links to one of those type of sites, they will be blocked and reported!

Wow! Don't get Grammy mad is all I can say. I liked your Chinese comment at the end. Momma thinks that most of the bad comment people have some sort of list of blogs to cycle through every week because we get those nasty link things on a schedule almost.

Fear not, the blogger spam blocker works great.

Linda, I'd never be mad at you.
We all make mistakes too.

I just let these comments go - I thought they went to bad sites.

No worries girl friend.

(((Linda))) you didn't know and now that you know, you did what had to be done to clean it up and make sure it wouldn't happen again. we try to be trusting of others and sometimes it backfires. I know one time I got an email from an email address I recognized and I opened the email, inside was a link for a site, as we had just been talking about something a few days ago, I thought that link was in reference to our conversation. It wasn't, but into a site for Viagra. As it turned out, the person when they realized what happened, sent an email apologizing to all their friends as someone had hacked into their address book and then sent that email out. So you just never know these days with the internet. Try not to worry about it and hug all those corgis and stay cool!!! hot days ahead for sure!

(I'm back blogging :)

Don't feel bad...there are bad people all over the world trying to think up sneaky ways to cause trouble for nice folks...the best we can do is try to avoid them when we can, and learn from it when we can't. You've obviously learned from it, cleaned up the site, and prevented it from coming back in the future.

Don't worry about it too much! Hug those corgis for me!

Monica said...

Ohmymymy - I WONDERED if that wasn't what would happen with those little innocent characters from another country.....oopsie! Thanks for letting us know! Hope you went through and deleted them all!!!

Lorenza said...

It is not your fault!
Tessa's mom told us about those comments so we never click the links!
Better be safe!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

How sad that some people have nothing better to do than play such ugly tricks. I guess I better take a look at my spam blocker!

Sorry you had to deal with this. Being a blog moderator can be too much work...
