Spam or Not

So here is my dilemma.  I keep writing comments on many of your blogs but they never show up.  I was beginning to think I was offending everyone and that you wanted me to leave blogville.  But thanks to a couple of you I have found out what is going on.
Blogger thinks I am SPAM
 
Now My Vickie thought Spam was this:
Spam (shortened from spiced ham)[1] is a canned precooked meat product made by the Hormel Foods Corporation, first introduced in 1937. The labeled ingredients in the classic variety of Spam are chopped pork shoulder meat, with ham meat added, salt, water, modified potato starch as a binder, and sodium nitrite as a preservative.
 
But apparently Blogger has another term for Spam
Spam post unwanted electronic messages: to post a message many times to a newsgroup, or an inappropriate message to multiple newsgroups
I was so concerned, I went around and asked all our guests at Canine Country Club if they thought I was Spam.
 
First I asked Montana...."Do You Think I am Spam"
The Same Question was asked to
James Dean
Dewey
Goose
Kinza
 Ty
 KC was asked but he declined to answer
 O'Mally
Nala
 Everyone had an opinion so we went out to the rest of the guests to ask them.
 Hey Bubbu, What do you think?
 Sophie, Do You think I am Spam
What say ye Dolby?
Rocko and Polo, do you have any thoughts on the subject.
 
And Orvis, You dont' think I am Spam do you.
 Hey!  Wait a minute, Did I already ask you.....?  Oh, I thought I was seeing quadruple.  It is weimer day.  Goose, Rocko, Polo and Orvis.  Boy, I thought I was loosing my mind.
Hey Zoey, What do you think?
 Chloe, No I don't have food, I am here to ask you a question.
Rothguard, if you would stop running around, I could ask you.
 So Logan, we are good friends. Do you think I am Spam?
 Rusty and Hank  could you stop barking long enough to answer me?
Man, that was harder than I thought.  Now I have a headache.
Spam....Not Spam
Food......Not food
I'm gonna go to bed and dream about Spam (the food kind)

So sorry to hear that Blogger thinks you are spam. At least on my wordpress blog I don't think you have the same problem ;-)

GOOSE said...

No wonder you are so well liked by all the K-('s. They think you are SPAM. I always thought you smelled sort of meaty and delicious. Yummmm spam, now I am hungry. I hope you get this all worked out. I'll see you in the morning buddy.
Blessings,
Goose

OMD, dude, Bert, you must have totally confused all of your friends talking about being spam!!! They probably were starving afterwards too! ;-D What an awesome looking bunch of playmates! I hope that Blogger starts thinking about you as Bert and not food, cause there's a big difference!

I HAVE been rescuing your comments from my spam box. It's been happening for a while now and I might even have mentioned it to you before. There's another reader whose comments faithfully end up there so I always check [every day] before deleting. All good. Except it IS curious! X

Charlotte said...

Hey sweetie (as our friend Goose calls you :-) - you didn't ask me... and so you didn't dream of me...)
Icann't help - I dream of you although...
sealed with a kiss your Charlotte

They might be confused with ham... Sorry for your troubles! Hope you get things figured out.

scotsmad said...

We KNOW you aren't spam. We'll have to check our Spam file more often.

XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & roxy

Blogger does some weird stuff sometimes.

haopee said...

For real. Google thinks you are Spam? You must be a very delicious one for that matter. Evn the Canine Club believes it... see they had big eyes and was thinking of chewing on you.

Huggies and Cheese,
Haopee

Molly The Wally said...

Oh my we never thought to check our spam. Now I have the blooming Monty Python spam song in my head. Have a fabulous Friday.
Best wishes Molly

Jeanne Pursell said...

Hmmmm...we never thought to check spam either...we better have mama check!! You sure have a whole bunch of friends to hang out with!! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

Mitch and Molly said...

Blogger stuck you in our spam folder too, Bert, but we told Blogger that Bert was NOT SPAM! Can you even imagine!

Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Honey, we found you in our SPAM box a few times and had to tell Blogger you were NOT spam. Turns out they aren't very smart and are still putting you in there. Maybe you could ask Allred to say something to Blogger?

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Bibi-Chan, Gen-Chan, Vidock, Violette said...

How could anyone think of you as spam, Bert? That is ridiculous! We didn't even know that Blogger has a spam box... Does it?

Woofs,
Tommy

Roo said...

Bert you made me hungry! BOL! Dude, you're not spam. In no way do you resemble that delectable yet not really good for you treat ;) With all your puter problems of late I'm beginning to think Tank and Allred have conspired together ;)

Waggin at ya,
Roo

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

OMD OMD.... this is Terrible. I am going to go and check to be sure you were not put in MY Spam thingy.

Frankie Furter and Ernie said...

Oh BERT.... I am sooooooo sorry I did NOT know that your comments were going into my SPAM thingy... I went and checked and it had CANNED about 87 of your WONDERFUL COMMENTS.
All this time I have thought that you were still having computer/InterMutts troubles and that was why I had not heard from you.
THANK YOU fur telling us to CHECK for your Comments.
I am so Sorry that this happened to you and your much loved words.

You sure don't look like spam. But do you taste like spam

finnhoward said...

Nah, you aren't spam. The computers are spam-crazy!!

Amber DaWeenie said...

Hmmmm.....Well, I luvs SPAM and I thinks it's really yummy! And...I luvs you too. So, yup, guess you's SPAM!

Murphy said...

No, you aren't SPAM! We never thought you were SPAM! That is a very odd problem though. Maybe you need to sprinkle a bit of seasoning on your computer before hitting [ENTER]??

Your friends,

Murphy & Stanley

Sam said...

I noticed that yesterday, but was pretty disorganized because of Sam's surgery. I waited to e-mail you but thought it was just our blog. Occasionally the OP Pack shows up as spam too! we just go through and un-spam you, but don't know how to change you to a non-spammer.

Sam

Cinnamon said...

Thank you for the heads up, had mom check our spam box too.

We'd never mistake you as spam,
your much too handsome.

Happy Weekend.

Oh Bert, we are so very sorry you keep getting spammed, but we so enjoyed seeing all your friends. It must be a blast at your place.

We are so glad you are able to get through to our blog - you are always so kind with your comments.

Have a great weekend.

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Bert we don't think you are Spam. It might be good for your friends if you smelt like spam, they would love you even more! Thanks for sharing all your photos. We loved every one of them. Sorry about the comment/spam business. We don't know why that would happen :-(
No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

The Army of Four said...

For a while there, all the non-Blogger blogs (WordPress and independents) marked us as Spam. It had something to do with our server, not us. Something like that. All I know is I'm hungry now, after all this chit-chat about Spam.
Luv,
Dave

dougall.dog said...

Hey Bert! I think that I might be having the same problem!!! I thinks we all needs to check our spam boxes (in the blogger comments section)...


Blogger can be SO silly!!

NCmountainwoman said...

What a great post, Bert! I loved all the dogs. You are so lucky to have so many friends.

The Cat From Hell said...

Nope, Bert, yous does not smell the least bit like spam. Me (and Wordpress) loves yous!
Kisses
Nellie

KB said...

Well, that explains it. I've received the emails saying that you commented but then I didn't see your comment on my blog. The idea that you smelled like spam didn't even cross my mind...

I wonder if this would work - I'll try going int my spam folder and marking your comments as NOT spam. Maybe blogger can learn if we all do that. How frustrating!

I love all your guests. You are so lucky to have so much furry love with you!

KEY WEST COLLIES said...

Bowsers, come to think of it, you and few show up as Spam, then we tell it to post later.

For some reason we keep wanting to say Spam I am, and go eat green eggs and Spam.

BOL

We know your not spam, even if silly blogger thinks you are.
