159 Russians

I’ve been invaded. 

You may have noticed that I haven’t been posting much in the past few months or even in the past year. Excuses: Depression, Black funk (possibly related to our Commander in Cheat). So, I wasn’t paying much attention to what the Russians were doing on my website.

Yes, RUSSIANS!

  1. YAY for you, Lynn– kill ’em dead, good buddy !! The Politicians should stop fighting & blaming each other over yes-Russians or no-Russians, and find a way to make our emails etc. safe from these bots or from any other hacker-types. We seem rather poor at protecting ourselves from our big inventions (such as nuclear power plants in earthquake areas).

  2. Yiiiikesssssssssssssssssssss!!! Hope they don’t invade all your subscribers and email friends…..The Russians are Coming….The Russians Are Coming…..(funny movie from long ago)….

    1. Don’t worry, Lee. They won’t hack you from my blog.

      Here’s what MailChimp wrote to me: “It does look like there were some fake signups (“spambots”) via your embedded form. This isn’t a hacking of an account per se, but an automated computer script that is built to find signup form code on your website or blog and submit email addresses to your audience.

      They won’t have any connection to you being signed up to receive my blog.

    1. What fun—–last Friday Alec from the GEEK ‘S came to cure my email from computer illness—–only cost $100—–and today
      I got your Russian blog—–Brava !!!!
      That’s MORE FUN !

  3. Hi Lynn, I’m so excited. This is my virgin blog.
    No really, I’ve never blogged anyone.
    This is great, especially since it’s someone I really like and admire.
    And bonus, someone with international
    connections. 😁
    Looking forward to being your bloggie
    (just made up that word, is that ok?) friend. ox

  4. I laughed. I cried. You are so funny, Lynn. But it’s also scary. Does MailChimp or do you have any conclusion why people, especially Russians, do spambots?

    You have such a recognizable voice and humor in your writing. Great pictures, too.

    Bravo.
