I’m really loving the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues? A handful of my blog readers have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any recommendations to help fix this problem?

First of all, I’m a horror writer. Why the hell would you think I know anything about Internet Browser Compatibility Issues? I mean, unless you think, since you did post this under my review of The Woman in Black, that your computer is haunted?

Everybody hates Spam—it fills up your Inbox (unless you’ve got G-mail, which does a great job of putting it in an appropriately-labeled folder), clogs your blog (WordPress does a great job filtering, too), and can threaten your computer’s security.

I have to say though, I love my Spam. It cracks me up—it’s poorly spelled, illiterate, and often leaves me wondering who would be dumb enough to click on the link for whatever product/service/lottery winning from mysterious relative in a country you’ve never heard of. So I decided in 2012 I’d go through my Spam each week and pick my favorites to share with the world. I remove the sender and any links that might be damaging (plus, who wants to give them press?).

See you next week! If you get any great Spam, you can post it here, just strip any links and the sender’s e-mail. And be sure to say something in the post to let me know you’re real. Otherwise I might think you’re…well, Spam.

  1. ahahahaha…..your comments are priceless! “Unless you think your computer is haunted!” ROFL! But the spam art at the top of the page takes the cake – “Having sex all night is no longer a tough job for your maidservant”?!?! Oh dear….
