Last night, celebrating her 24th Sober Anniversary, in front of a packed house at our Saturday night Birthday Speaker Meeting, Patti gave the best talk I have ever heard her give.

Hello Again Gullible..

I just wrote a comment on Chapter 34 of Gullible’s latest (perhaps the last Chapter??) 2023 Brazil Journals Post and used the term “Comfortably Numb” to describe how she must have felt navigating her trip back to the United States from Brazil. The below link will take you to her Post.


What an adventure your trip to Brazil was Gullible. Thanks so very much for sharing it with us.

Not even I, the so called “Owner” of this website knows “what is going on at all times with my website here”.

Beginning way back on Day One (August the 16th, 2011) of this website, my webmaster Andrej installed a Spam Protection Plugin here on dotnet called Akismet.


Now SPAM I understand. Real SPAM is obvious. OK?

To date, Akismet has intercepted (get this) 187,082 SPAM comments!

What I don’t understand is why Akismet considered the below actual comments to be SPAM.

Do any of the above comments seem to you like they are “Bothersome SPAM”?

I’ll have to ask Andrej.

This I will say : I do not know any of the above contributors. Sometimes it is all I can do to keep up with the comments from you who I know personally. There is no way I could answer the above comments because many might get into a back-and-forth dialogue with me.

    Spam comments?!!! Absolutely. Trollers, scam artists, sneaky advertisers, identity thieves and their ilk. You can recognize them in an instant. They are unduly praise full of the post, want to be your friend. Ask Andre what happens next.

    You yourself have emailed me when you saw similar comments on my blog. Those comments artificially buildup the number of “people”who read your blog,sad to say. I’m pretty sure it’s done by some automatic means, not by an actual person. Andre can explain it. I can’t and don’t know the proper terms.

    Hearty congrats to Patti.

    You will notice that while heaping the praise on you, the commenter never, ever cites one specific thing in your post. Not one. The comments are all generic to a fault.

      You are ABSOLUTELY CORRECT Gullible !! Not one specific thing is ever mentioned. And some SPAM comments “date back” a year or longer to a Post.

    1. Cap Chastain Post author

      Amazing Robert. Absolutely, Positively Amazing. Brilliant !! I had absolutely “no clue” about “sophisticated” SPAM. The comments all looked very positive and yes somewhat pleasing indeed. You and Gullible “nailed it”. Cap

      I corrected your “comment or” to commenter!! It makes me more than a little bit crazy when spell check does this !! Smiles .. Cap

    OMG! I was in another universe and completely spaced out on Patti’s generous gift to share her story from the podium! I feel like a complete dolt! Please forgive me, dear Patti! Now I can ONLY imagine the inspiration you brought to the members of Sun Group! For some inexplicable reason we did not communicate all Saturday and no one clued me in. I’m not living in fear of altheimer’s but it’s the ‘big’ little things that cause me concern. How could I……
    With deep reverent humility,

      Hi Michael. We just enjoyed a long telephone conversation and now you know “The Rest of The Story” about Patti’s share from the podium this past Saturday evening. Neither Patti nor I knew that Patti would be asked to share her 24th Anniversary with the Sun Group. So “please don’t beat yourself up Michael!”. Both of us are smiling Michael. Cap and Patti
