Enunciations, Utterances, Opinions and Comments

Dressing it up, and hiding from the spam bots.


So besides the blandness of “comments” and “stated”, I’m trying to ditch those words in the code for the blog to avoid attracting spam bots. (Apparently one of the keywords they look for is “comments”.) Spam comments haven’t yet been a problem, and I’d like to do whatever I can to keep it that way.

I liked “opined thusly” for the recent comments on the sidebar, but hated “Recent Opinions” for the header. Additionally, I think “opinions” is probably not uncommon enough to avoid the spam bots.

Lifewish has offered several suggestions, two of which I’m liking.

“enunciate” and “utter”.

I’ve also been batting around “articulate”, “pronounce”, and “orate”.

So the header would be “Recent Enunciations” or “Recent Utterances”, the link at the bottom of a post on the home page would read “Enunciations” or “Utterances”, and the header at the top of the list of comments would read the same. The actual recent comments themselves on the sidebar would read “blipey enunciated thusly” or “Lifewish uttered”, either one with or without the “thusly”.

What are your thoughts? I’m pretty willing to go with a majority vote on this. Feel free to offer alternatives.

    Hi Janie,
    I am stealing a quick look while at work. The noun for orate would be oratory. I rather like ‘Recent Oratory’.

    Just a thought: if there was more than one phrase that you liked, it’d be extremely easy to rig the code to pick one at random.

    Hi guthrie!

    You know, that one is outside my current vocabulary, I’ll have to look into that.

    Thanks vino! I like that one, too.
    Good to see you ’round!

    Lifewish, you are such a doll. I had been thinking that would be really cool if it could be done, but I didn’t want to impose any more than I already had.

    I really should pay you or something, but I’m afraid that virtual kisses and roses are all I can produce for you.

    Kisses and Roses galore if you have time and inclination to do it.

    “Eructations?”

    Just looked it up. That’s too funny. Lifewish, if you do the randomizer thing, you really have to include that.

    Kisses,
    JanieBelle

    Eructations is funny, if a little hard to say. But we aren’t saying it, are we? Which brings me to the Oratory bit–we really aren’t orating anything (unless we all read our posts aloud while typing).

    I’m still a fan of Nietzsche-esque “Thus spake blipey…”

  7. JanieBelle says:

    blipey:

    But we aren’t saying it, are we?…(unless we all read our posts aloud while typing)

    ummm….no….we don’t….um… that would be silly….yeah…only a nutcase….

    OK, get the light out of my eyes, I CONFESS!!!

  8. Anonymous says:

    “Thus spake blipey”?
    Well unless you spoke aloud while typing that doesn’t necessarily fit well either. Any choice will have poor fit for the purpose. I will venture she is merely seeking the least poor fit.

    vino of wil

  9. JanieBelle says:

    Geez vino,

    I already confessed!!! Stop torturing me!!!

    OK I GIVE UP!!! I ALSO SHOT JFK!!! I PEEKED AT MY BROTHERS SECRET STASH OF NUDIE MAGAZINES!!! I ONCE STOLE A PEN FROM THE GUY AT THE CHECK-OUT COUNTER BECAUSE IT WAS CUTE!!! I CHEATED ON ONE VOCAB QUIZ IN SIXTH GRADE BECAUSE I DIDN’T FEEL LIKE STUDYING!!!

    Please don’t send me to prison. I’ll implicate anyone you want, and do a gabillion hours of community service, and write a million page essay…

    🙂

    Kisses,
    JanieBelle

    (p.s. That was all in a joking tone, don’t be upset.)

  10. JanieBelle says:

    p.p.s. I never cheated on a vocab quiz.

  11. JanieBelle says:

    p.p.p.s. I only confessed to that under duress, and my attorney says that won’t stand up in court.

  12. blipey says:

    vino: you are, of course, absolutely correct.

    I was blinded by my own pretentiousness…see my suggestion was better because it was preten….hmmm. Have I used enough “…” to be a creationist, yet?…no?

    Maybe “thus babbled blipey….”

  13. JanieBelle says:

    What are you trying to say about my ellipses, blipey?

    🙂

    I didn’t think of it as pretense, I thought of it as drama. Melodrama, maybe. Definitely light-hearted.

    I’m very ok with “thus spake blipey”, or “thus eructated guthrie”.

  14. blipey says:

    Nice. Like the random verbiage.

  15. JanieBelle says:

    me too! How ’bout the new header for each comment?

  16. Lifewish says:

    I PEEKED AT MY BROTHERS SECRET STASH OF NUDIE MAGAZINES!!!

    Any good ones?

    Uh… I mean to say… bad Janie! Bad, bad Janie!

  17. Alan Fox says:

    Is this something to do with why I get shed-loads of spam selling viagra, cialis, cheap watches etc., etc., since getting mildly hooked on blogging (a habit which I am trying to break, or at least keep in check). Will it stop if I sever all connections with Blogger? Is there a simple solution, such as a free spam filter that works?

    Merci en avance
    Gros bisous
    Salut les filles!

    What’s happened to the science?

    You guys have already caused me to rat my brother out, I’m not going to tell you anything else about his hustler and Penthouse collection. I’m also not going to mention the other titles because I don’t remember them anyway.

    😛

  19. JanieBelle says:

    I think that’s a whole different thing, Alan. What I was talking about was bogus comments popping up in blog threads.

    What’s happened to the science?

    It hasn’t gone anywhere, Alan. I’ve been sick with the flu or something, and then I was playing with the site a little bit. I’m feeling much better than I was, but I haven’t really felt up to heavy biology.

    We’ll come back ’round to it soon, I promise.

    Merci en avance
    Gros bisous
    Salut les filles!

    De rien, monsieur.
    Salut les garcons aussi.
    Un baiser pour vous.

  20. JanieBelle says:

    That looks silly without the cedilla.

  21. Alan Fox says:

    Language bar option: French Canadian keyboard and “close square bracket”

    Garçons. Ça marche!

  22. JanieBelle says:

    Çe n’est pas très façile, monsieur.

    Est ce que “facile” a un cedilla?

    Je ne c’est pas maintenent.

    Pardonez-moi s’il vous plait, pour le retarder dans ma réponse, je discutais avec un idiot.

    Un baiser pour vous. Entretiendriez-vous une certaine langue avec cela?

  23. JanieBelle says:

    Et mon vocabulaire est un peu vieux ainsi j’ai obtenu de l’aide du Babelfish, pour être parfaitement honnête.

    Comment dit-on en français, “rusty”?

    J’ai étudié à l’école, mais cela ne parle pas, vraiment. Le passé me donne toujours des problèmes. Apparemment, Bablefish ne s’inquiète pas de ma grammaire, l’une ou l’autre.

  24. JanieBelle says:

    Pour un example, je dit “J’etude dans l’ecole” et Bablefish dit “J’ai étudié à l’école”.

    Et je ne sais toujours pas écrire le cedilla ou les accents.

    Je “copy and paste” ceux.

  25. JanieBelle says:

    Mes professeurs disent toujours “Repetez s’il vous plait” et “Repondez, s’il vous plait” et “Ecrivez, s’il vous plait”…

    Et ils disent “La fille est dans la musee”. Et nous disons “La fille est dans la musee”. “Classe, ou est la fille?” “La fille est dans la musee.” Facile, mais pas de tres utile.

  26. JanieBelle says:

    Pourquoi utilisez-vous le clavier Canadien? Vous etes en France, n’est pas?

  27. JanieBelle says:

    HAHAHAHAHA

    I wasn’t sure of the spelling, so I plugged in “comme ci comme ca” into Bablefish.

    It translated back to English–

    like Ci like Ca

    That’s too funny. Real helpful that was!
