Out With The Old: In With The New!

It has been a while since my last post, as some of you have probably noticed, and I am now briefly going to bring you all up to date on what has, or has not been going on, here at "Kenny's Great Outdoors!"

From my last post until Christmas, I have been dealing with some very serious health issues! It took a long while and now those issues are a thing of the past.

Then I discovered that my blog, had been hijacked, by some low life, nothing better to do with their time, hacker thieves!  I discovered I no longer had control of my blog! I couldn't log in to post, and I watched my blog change colors etc. So I got a few of my geek friends, to help me REPOSSESS, my blog! As of January 3, 2010 "Kenny's Great Outdoors" Is back under my control and plans are to keep it that way! 

I have stopped allowing automatic comments, all comments will now be screened and reviewed before allowing them to be published on my blog! It seems as though a few bad apples got into the basket and have spoiled it all for the rest of us! I do apologize for that, but will now only allow appropriate comments that contribute to the post! All post will be screened and only those that are appropriate will be approved, NO MORE SPAM comments will be allowed or tolerated! If you add a link to your comment, make sure it is not to a spam site!

Those of you who comment and have links in your comments, are welcome, whether you agree or disagree, this is not a problem! There have been way too many spam comments, and my readers and myself, have grown tired of the inconsiderate spam, in which doesn't even relate to the post and links to sites that aren't even outdoor related!

I do apologize to those readers , that have respected these rules, and now have to wait for approval , of their comments, I really do hate this, but is something I have to do to maintain integrity, and respect to all who visit this site! My readers are dear to me and I value each and every one of you! Once these spammers have been put in their place and can learn to respect the rules, then we might, and I  stress very much "MIGHT!"  lighten up on the comments policy!  This is my play house and no more bs is going to be tolerated!

You know who you are, SPAMMER or legit commenter, if the shoe fits wear it, if the word "SPAMMER" does not apply to you then disregard this post! I am no longer "SPAM" tolerant! If the spam persists then I will turn over the spammers ISP and identities to google and let them deal with them!

One last word to the hackers, and they know who they are as I have contacted them! This is the only chance I am giving you, the next time you will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law! Quit being lazy and create your own blog and posts and create your own traffic sources! It does require a lot of work,and time! So to coin a phrase, " GET ER DONE!" But not with this blog!

Sorry to waste your time and my time to address this issue, but enough is enough!

Please stay tuned for more updates and posts, I love you all, and hope that 2010 is a better year for all of you! Now on with the new and out with the old, and the spamming is getting old, So please excuse my ranting and raving, enough said already!

Kenny - Good to see you back man. Look forward to seeing some new stuff!


Shoreman said...

Hey Kenny. This spamming thing seems to becoming an epidemic. I haven't experienced it yet on my site, but it's just a matter of time. You're doing the right thing by approving all comments. If we're a friend, we can wait for you to OK it. Glad to see you back and recovered.

Kenny - glad to see you back, and even happier that whatever the health issues were, they're behind you now.


It would be a much better place for all of us if the "bottom feeders" would just go away, but I think that's wishful thinking.

Glad you're back

Josh - thanks for the comment, glad to be back and new stuff is on the way!

Shoreman - good to be back and I am stronger than ever, and a little fed up with the BS, but will deal with it!

Wolfy - I have a clean bill of health now and they will go away if they keep messing with ME!

Thanks to all of you for your support and friendship, as I cherish each and everyone of you guys! Once I get p.o.ed then I am a force to reckon with! Pay back is a $@&*@ ! HA!

First of all, Kenny, glad to hear your health related issues have been cleaned up. I knew something was going on as it is not like you to stay away for so long.

Secondly, I had similar issues back a few months ago and had to do the same thing you have done. It is the right thing to do! The integrity of all of our outdoor blogs must be maintained or we will lose credibility and readership. I am with you 100% my friend.

Mel, thanks for your patience and understanding, and I might add that the internet is quite the jungle! We just have to get out our machetes and chop our way through the strangling undergrowth of all the weeds and such. I am sorry to say that a bull dozer and brush hog was necessary to clean up the mess here and it cost me about $300.00 for technical help, but since have recovered my losses, so we have to live and learn. Thanks for caring and the nice comments!

Glad you're back at it. Between the health issues and the spammers I don't know which is worse as they both effect a great portion of our living. Hope things have smoothed out.
