A little lesson from Spam

Posted on Posted in Autobiographical

This is a partial quote from the spam comment folder from a couple of days that caught my eye.

…but I am not sure that your terrific job is clearly identified.

I did a double take. Criticism goes to the spam folder now? HA!  The words were so strange to me that I had to read it a couple of times to really let that sink in. On the third time I noticed that what it REALLY said was:

…but I am sure that your terrific job is clearly identified.

Ok NOW it sounds a lot more like spam. I inserted <not> into the sentence. This is only evidence to me that my self-censor is alive and well and has not yet been shut off. Back to work!

The good stuff doesn’t arrive until that thing gets in the “off” position.
