If I’ve missed your email, here’s why…

I’m being spammed like it’s going out of style! Every morning – and throughout every single day – I am bombarded with these types of messages. Yes, we’ve got spam filters (they’re keeping these comments from actually being published to the blog). But my Inbox is still inundated, and amidst all the chaos, I may have missed your email. If so, please accept my apologies and email me at mary_b_kirby(at)yahoo(dot)com

Thank you!

    I think it may help if you post your *new* email address as mary_b_kirby(at)yahoo(dot)com rather than:
    mary_b_kirby@yahoo.com, otherwise you risk automated messages aka spam packing up and attacking this new address as well.

    Thanks so much, Jay. Sorted!

    Isn’t leaving your address in Jays message unaltered risking spammers taking your email from there?

    It does, but it’s the easiest way to get the message out. I’ve missed so many important emails. I know I’m creating further problems for my Yahoo account but I don’t have an immediate solution to this one. Guess I’ll keep pushing out more and more email addresses! Damn.

    Hey Mary is their a way to intergrate a “CAPTCHA code” for your emails so you don’t get spam?

    It’s too bad we can’t send anti-spam bombs back to the responsible server. I’d like to think some arc ‘n spark followed by some nice ozone and smoke would do wonders to shut down spammers.

    FWIW, we now seem to have resolved the problems with that particular wave of spam comments, which should leave Mary’s inbox rather freer than it has been…
