I actually have a little overkill her, as far as blogs go, as I have this one, and   Both of the are WordPress blogs.  One is the Free blog allowed by WordPress and the other is a paid blog on

Both blogs had have Akismet to help control Spam…  The WordPress hosted site has the free Akismet checker while the hosted site it is about 5 bucks a month..  I can never be sure about the effectiveness of either program…  On, which has the paid program I get very little Spam..  On I get tons of spam, though most of it I don’t see but, I get a good deal more on the one site than I do on the other..  Now..  The question is : What does this all mean..?

I get a lot of Spam on one, which is the site that is hosted by the people who put out the blog..  Does that act like a magnet to attract spam, or does the lack of large amounts of spam on just mean that nobody reads it..  I have no idea…

The funny thing about the spam that I do get on ThatJoeGuy is the number of people who leave comments on the “About” page telling me how much they enjoy reading all this wonderful information, and how well I put it together…

I moderate my spam… and people who leave comments, on any page, that indicate they have not read that page might as well not bother leaving a comment because, unless I can see some kind of correlation between the comment and the page, it goes by by..

Ex SSgt in Air Force Security Police... I had 10 years of active duty and inactive reserve. I have a total of 20 years, includes Air Force SP, security experience.
I also worked 8 years and 4 months in the Garden Center of the Sarasota Cattleman Walmart.
I also took the CCNA class at Sarasota Vo-Tech, when it was still called that.
I am now, since 2010 a caregiver for my Mother.
While I am now a registered Republican I am more likely to vote for whichever person I believe will do a better job.. In the last presidential elections I voted Libertarian, as I the two main choices seemed to be between lying crook, or an uncouth babler who could not be trusted.

Sort of like the comment made by Shakesoeares friend in the movie “Shakespeare In Love”: “It’s a mystery!” Like why do I keep getting poorly spelt letters from “benefactors” overseas. Maybe someone knows I am over 70 and good prey — usually. Except that Old Age and Cunning beats Youth and Enthusiasm every time…


There is a computer game that I have played, several times, called Deuc Ex : Human something.. It is a first person shooter though there are other component to it such as hacking computers… Every time I play it, must be 4 times now, I am suprised at how many of the computers have emails from the Fincance Minsiter, or some other official, in the Nigerian Government..


There’s a great Monty Python Sketch about SPAM. It was the edible stuff, though. “What about SPAM, SPAM, EGGS and SPAM; that doesn’t have much SPAM in it…” I know that I get more phishing/SPAM than I think I deserve, and it is hard to say where it comes from. Probably just too much exploring on the Internet… I do wipe the cookies clean from time to time, and then it takes a couple months to see the phishers return.
