Michael, I've been receiving "comments" from "amarpd", with links to videos, etc. Is there any way I can block people I don't want leaving "solicitations" on my blog? I rarely have these because we pay for the PB upgrade, but I don't know how to delete them permanently. Thanks for the help! A PB fan - brenda

Brenda, click on their user name and then the little drop down arrow and then click "block"

I did that to one of my spammers and it worked.

This really IS annoying. It's easy to get rid of them when they post this crap on your blog, but I hate it here in the forum

"There once was a man from Nantucket
Who bought an Internet rip-off locket.
On looking at the links
He exclaimed "What a con, methinks.
Aw, goddam and double [insert obvious end here]".

Pre-coffee morning attempt. Will have another crack at better versification later. Sorry, Feby.

There once was a man from Nantucket
Who threw all his spam in a bucket
He gave it to the pig
who didn't give a fig
and told him, in no uncertain terms, to go f*** **.

ROTF! Those were great! for any time of day.

"There once was a man from Nantucket.
Who moved:
Peer pressure."

It's haiku (and a bad one at that). Bloody Edward Lear.

I've been racking my brains all day whether or not to replace the colon with a full stop. Comments wanted.

In my 'umble opinion, keep the colon. It makes a link with what went before, making a stronger indication that it was peer pressure that caused the move and not something else (I think).

But you see, litotes dictates that less is more, especially in this bloody haiku where "Nantucket" uses up most of the sodding syllables. Whilst I pride myself in effecting a cultural and creative fusion of Japanese Zen poetry, 19th century Victorian wordplay and "humorous" attempts at not saying "fuck it", the deep, dark night of my creative yearning wants to call this either "Poetic License" or "A Complete Waste of My Time and Everybody Else's".

Still, it bumped off the spam...

Thanks, Jon.

I agree with Jon. Cool Haiku.
;o)

I'm with Jack Kerouac on this. Don't worry too much about the syllables as the languages are different. And yes, it is a cool Haiku.

What about this as a challenge? We set some day as Haiku day, everyone that wants to writes a verse, haiku style (or something approximating it), and posts a picture to illustrate it.

it's a colonic irritation

Agree!

Which is why it's called aïe-cul in French (sorry for the trilingual pun).

Maybe it's a Chinese haiku?

There once was a girl from Nantucket,
who dumped her computer in a bucket.
And when the wind blew,
the bucket Feebs threw,
and Derek unsuccessfully ducked it!!
