Spam 🐖 Annoying Comment 😠

I’m starting to get and be spam from few days back. Spam is a brand of canned cooked… Sorry, wrong spam. Here we go – irrelevant or inappropriate messages sent on the Internet to a large number of recipients. But reality? Not so much, maybe because that description is referred to spam in general, but I’m going to talk about spam specifically for this platform, spam comment in my site or others.

When I tried to comment on my favorite blog, I can’t seem to add any comment, she said “Yuulye where did your comment vanish?”, and then I tried to add another comment, 2 or 3 times after that still no success, after a while I tried again and this time it worked! A few days passed she told me that my comments considered as spam by the system and she approved all of those! *annoyed*

Another case, I ask my friend to read my newest post, she seems insensitive until I need to ask (but she is cute). Well, she did visit my blog to read the post and then she commented, but I don’t get any notification. I tried asking her, “why didn’t you leave a comment?” “I did” she replied and I told her that there is no comment from her *sadface*.

I was thinking, my brain? I was wondering. A day later I saw her comment detected as spam. Why didn’t I check it before, I guess it needs two incidents to make me realize! After that I periodically try to check spam comment or comments for my site in general. But I still don’t know why some comments detected as spam.


I search for this problem, I found a resource from support post titled Unwanted Comments and Comment Spam, there is a point in the article that says…

Are your comments incorrectly marked as spam? Please contact Akismet support and mention that Akismet is catching your comments by mistake.

So I went to the link…

⚠️ Want to get help even faster? Don’t forget that our Plus subscription includes priority email and chat support.

Okay, no thanks! Well it’s not really that important, really small number of comments that considered as spam and I can manually check it on the spam comment section. Boring? Let’s find something interesting.

But before that, additional info that your site using Akismet or not you can go to wp-admin, comment menu, spam list, if you have a spam, try checking the History. In the comment history you can see what happen to that comment.


There it is, my investigation, doesn’t really have any good outcome, but whatever…

Why it’s called Spam?

While some have suggested that this was because SPAM (as in the Hormel meat product) is sometimes satirized as “fake meat”, thus spam messages are “fake messages”, this potential origin, while plausible enough on the surface, turns out to be not correct at all.

The real origin of the term comes from a 1970 Monty Python’s Flying Circus skit. In this skit, all the restaurant’s menu items devolve into SPAM. When the waitress repeats the word SPAM, a group of Vikings in the corner sing “SPAM, SPAM, SPAM, SPAM, SPAM, SPAM, SPAM, SPAM, lovely SPAM! Wonderful SPAM!”, drowning out other conversation, until they are finally told to shut it.

For short, I decided to understand spam as annoying message, in this post case unwanted comment. I’m bored, sorry if this is not as interesting as I expected…

My Question

I recently had some blogger awards, and for some of those I need to ask questions, one of my question is “What does comment mean to you?”. I cringe myself for asking that question when I read the answers. So now I’ll try to answer the question myself.

For me, comment section is a tool, a tool provided by WordPress to do something powerful, as powerful as a post, I believe. The platform also give me a hint! I just didn’t understand it soon enough…


But as always, I often make mistakes with this, sometimes I didn’t read the post but rushing to give a comment just by seeing the title and the comment turns out to be hurtful, inappropriate or irrelevant. Then I found a way to change that, of course to read the post before comment and the other one is be mindful. The poem from Winnie is super good!


I actually didn’t get annoyed so easily, probably because the years I’ve spent living, but I have to make an exception.*wink* I just make the title a little bit dramatic to attract more readers, hahaha, sorry. Is the title click-bait enough?

So for you the one who accidentally read this post, don’t worry if you have anything to say to me or the blog, say it on any comment section, I would be very happy to receive it, and if your comment doesn’t appear in the place it supposed to be you can blame the Akismet not me, don’t bully me, I’m really a sensitive person…


Choco – The goddess of enlightenment?

I was thinking so hard last night, I couldn’t think anymore, so I sleep it off, hahaha. This post is dedicated to my WordPress BFF because on Instagram not so much, Choco…late? That is really accurate nickname, because she is super sweeeeetttt! I need to check my blood sugar level now…

Inspired by Avni in her post titled Meet grandma Angie!, I want to do the same by writing this post. Actually I just read the post before I write this, I saw the title in her post list when first time I meet her, just didn’t have the feel to read it right away.

Back to Sai. Earlier that day I was writing my next post, I mention her in it. Here is some proofs. I’m writing WordPress post with so many layers… am I perfectionist?1

Then she posted a new post Versatile blogger award 😱, with me on top of the list, yaay me! It’s not like there is connection, but I’m just really happy with her kindness. I probably noticed the post an hour after its released. The post maybe version 7.0 now, I don’t know.

I was watching her post, yes watching, with no intention of watching. I had a notification I click on her post, I’m thinking what to comment and then I distracted by other notification I clicked it and leave the post, while I’m thinking what to say, later I went back to the post and it’s updated with new words, and I think it was hilarious!

While I tried refreshing the page, she commented on my post, calling me dumb, I am dumb2, because I haven’t dropped any comment, I believe she was waiting, sorry, hahaha. Shortly after that she asking me when I’m going to write the post for award post reply, hey, I haven’t commented on your post yet! Well, I hope this post will answer both.

I was having a really tiring day yesterday since I woke up, I had a dream about my ex girlfriend. But I didn’t give up that day not like I always do, I still go to Mosque at dawn to pray, and start questioning my entire life. But later, my struggling doesn’t work, my brain feels so tired, because of that stupid dream, or am I just overthink about everything3.

I wanted to write the post right away last night, my brain just doesn’t work anymore for the day, I gave up I went to sleep. I had another dream, now about Choco’s post. In my dream I went to see the post again and saw that the BFF status was removed, hahaha, but when I see it again in this time the words still there, probably after this post published, that dream will become reality.

She is so smart! I know it from her words, when we talked in comment, reading her posts, her references, it’s like we are the same age but she is smarter than me. I think Jerry can confirm this. At her age, I was beating up friends, drinking alcohol, smoking cigarretes!4 I don’t know who Helen Keller is, I don’t know how to use whom or who. Fudge!

Before sleep, I tried to leave a sign for her, that I was thinking and I couldn’t continue the day, but I’m not sure that she noticed or not. Where she said “It is not necessary for everything to have a reason…. Isn’t it?????” I think that her mood changed that time. My answer is, I believe that everything is connected written in a book somewhere! I just don’t know the truth about it yet! My username, yuulye, I need to plan it for at least 3 months5, since I had the idea of creating a wordpress account, well in that 3 months I still do something else.

In her latest post, I love that the fact she adds some additional information after the award nominee names, it’s cute! I did something similar in my early time of writing post, I add some description on the nominees, I even add their pictures. I’m a stalker6. I have built a script to stalk my readers, my stalking is in the next level, huahahaha.


You probably don’t want to get too close to me because I can go crazy at any time. Just like what I did to my ex, I stalked her like crazy, but only her, I have never crossed the line anymore since that, it was me being a moron! I always consider myself as a psychopath7 until I talked to Mariam/Marium? I get a free consultation there, hahaha. She said that I’m not one and I’m glad to hear that.

This is it, a post for you Choco, I’m really happy to meet you on WordPress. I skim the spellcheck and translation part because I wouldn’t want to keep you waiting any longer, I probably update it later, or delete it, whatever, hahaha. I hope you can understand what I mean, don’t leave with mean comment, I’ll probably thinking about it all the times, hahaha…

Time Machine 🕰️🚂

Is time machine real? I’m talking about a machine that can travel through time, like a 2002 American science fiction film titled The Time Machine, I watched the film in Indonesian television few years back and I pretty much liked it, or I was just hoping that the time machine really exists?

I googled “time machine” and the top result is a backup software from Apple macOS. Is it wrong that I called it time machine, I like the term and I don’t want to change that! Well if google doesn’t agree with me, I’m going to try another search engine, I’m mad at you google! But before I leave I’m gonna google one more thing “search engines”…

I used and the results are science fiction novella by H. G. Well – published in 1895, The movie and the apple. I used I see Chinese characters 百度一下 the results are OS X – I believe this is another software. I used and another apple. I think I’m gonna have to go back with google, but what I’m gonna say, I’m sorry google, I promise I wouldn’t use another again, unless you’re down or my country blocking the usage of you.

As a programmer I use search engine a lot, I have a task I google it, found the answer in stackoverflow and then copy and paste the code in to my work, done! Let’s get back to the topic.

Time Travel Machine

Did I use the wrong term? I think I did, so what’s the correct one? What about “Time Travel Machine”? Okay, getting some. One saying that the reality of time travel is muddled – Not all scientist believe that time travel is possible, I just couldn’t find who says it possible.

I’m not giving up, I’m still searching until I find Yes, but to my knowledge only in the forward direction. I know of two instances, one for 100 years, and the other for 300 years. I’m still struggling with the content there so I wouldn’t talk too much about it.

Is that Possible?

What is possible? time machine? time travel? time travel machine? 99% I’m sure that it’s not real yet. But I wish that it’s real and I can use it right now? For what? I made mistakes a lot it’s countless and I want to go back in time to fix that, hoping that today is not what I experienced.

100% you can visit the past, not like time travel for human though, for file! If you haven’t read my post abouthistory, well I will tell you the excerpt here. When you creating and editing a file or image or document for several times, you probably done something wrong and want to go back to previous version, you can do it with a software called version control.

I need to rethink about this… about my belief in time machine! If time machine really existed, I would have a perfect life! I don’t have to suffer for all my mistakes! All I can think is imagine the future, what happen to the future if this is what I’m doing right now, am I going to regret it?

The post is over above the line there, but if you insist to reading it till the end here we go my rambling!

If you haven’t read my Sunshine Blogger award post, please do! I will be really happy if you read it and click the links I provided. The links are my favorite blogs check them out, please! This post is also inspired by it, I talk a litte about time machine. Sunshine Blogs

I’m really sorry for cogitoesoterica from smalltimejetsetter, I will never ← neversaynever, it will take me a really long time to invent the time machine, hope you understand…

Sunshine Blogger Award

The Sunshine Blogger is an award given to bloggers by bloggers for bringing creativity, positivity and sunshine into the lives of readers.

I’m really happy to be mentioned on one of my favorite blog! Winnie in Musings Mom of three teenagers blogging journey. Brace me self, huge traffic coming!

Air hug for my friend L from A Book World! I’m sorry for air hugging you, this is because you are so friendly, is it too much?. Cringe? Well, I hold back too much thought so I will let this one slip. I will answer the 12th question here What made you nominate me? because 12 is not prime number (me trying to be handsome like Nathan from A Brilliant Young Mind (2014)).

I was like you, I had a hard time finding nominations, nominees? awardees? I really don’t understand how to use those kind of words. So I went through my readers (I really don’t have the courage to call it what it is because it’s too much of responsibility), and try contacting them by adding a comment on a random post to see if you are currently active or not. But don’t think this is just random, let’s call it, fate!

Those two weird paragraphs is dedicated to Tom from Tomos James, hahaha! Sorry! Go Big or Go Home! Let’s see how readers will react with the updates. This probably will only be read by 4 person: myself, L, Tom, and my lovely new friend Daman.


Hi Daman! This kind of funny, I nominate myself, hahaha, not funny? okay. I try my best to understand all of my readers because when I published a post it will appear on their feeds or email, so this time I commented on Daman’s Blog although it’s not my only motive, it’s called aboveandbeyondtheinfinity or thisisdamanblog? Oh, you’re going to write a post about it, I’ll happily waiting for your new post! *lovelove*

Right to Left

If you try to write in Hebrew, Kurdish (Sorani), Persian/Farsi, Aramaic, Azeri, Dhivehi/Maldivian, Urdu or Arabic you might want to read this post. My primary language is Indonesian, English is my second, and recently I’m learning Arabic. Indonesian and English are written in the same direction and that is left to right (ltr), but Arabic is different, it is written from right to left (rtl). While learning arabic, I tried to make a post and quoting some arabic texts in my post, here is how I write RTL language in my post…

Auto Detection 🔖

I found it strange when I write arabic text, sometime it aligned to right, sometime to the left. After debugging, I think the web reader will automatically align text to the language in the post, when the post is considered using rtl language it will add direction properties to the container.

When detected as RTL
No RTL detection

As you can see in the image when it detected as RTL language the post story content block adding direction and style attribute to the element and filling the style attribute with direction and text-align properties.

direction=rtl, {direction: rtl} & {text-align: right} 🔖

I don’t know the HTML attribute for direction and after I check it does nothing, so I will refer to dir HTML attribute. FYI, this attribute will give the element styles

element {
  direction: rtl;
  unicode-bidi: isolate;

I will just leave the dir attribute because I’m not using it, this is just for additional information.

Debugging direction and text-align

From the picture above I decide that I will only use the style direction: rtl; because the result is what I needed. There are a lot of technical things to deal with the rtl like unicode-bidi, but for now I’m happy enough with just that appearance. The period symbol on the div with the style direction: rtl; appear in the most left compared to the text-align: right;, so in my opinion you can ignore other attributes or properties. Now we can move on and make it real.

Quoting Inline and Block RTL 🔖

As I was complained before about the difference view between reader, site, or mobile apps appearance I need to prepare classes and inline styles. In an inline view, I will need DayPicker--ar class which has the property direction: rtl;. In addition, you can add another class formatted-header__title to make the font size bigger font-size: 24px; because it appear pretty small compared to the English letters. For the inline element you can use span.



For the block view, I have some additional styling because I want it to appear more interesting than other parts.


It has different classes with the inline term-tree-selector for border style and notice__content to add more margin and padding. I used h1 for the rtl text part because I want to make the font even bigger than just 24px, probably. I separate the meaning with hr which is horizontal line.


Or you can just make the block rtl simpler with changing span into div from the inline.

Now I’m wondering why some languages is written right to left or left to right, or even why there are so many languages. I hope that my experience can help you if you had difficulties with writing RTL text.

Visit the Post I was talking about

السَّلَامُ عَلَيْكُمْ (assalamu ‘alaykum) means “peace be upon you”. When a muslim meet his/her brother/sister on the way, he greet him by saying this sentence or at least this is how I’ve been taught since I was little as a muslim kid. I’d like to greet you also in Islamic way because I’m planning on filling this blog with posts about Islam. […]

Call to Action

After reading this post you should be able to make “Call to Action” button on your post. In web terms, a call to action is usually an enticement for someone to visit a link, and that link is often designed to look like a button, ready to be clicked. Maybe you’d like visitors to head straight to your Services page? Or perhaps you’d like them to check out your latest recipe, or sign up for your newsletter?

Call to Action 🔖

CTA is a marketing term used extensively in advertising and selling. It refers to any device designed to prompt an immediate response or encourage an immediate sale. A CTA most often refers to the use of words or phrases that can be incorporated into sales scripts, advertising messages or web pages that encourage consumers to take prompt action.

Click Me! or Click Me!

Between the two clickable text, which one make you want to click more? I’m certain that you will click the text with button shaped background, because it’s more interesting. Although it’s not guaranteed that your link will be clicked. Let’s see how this can be achieved in your post.

Button 🔖

Open your post editor and go to HTML tab. Create an HTML element and add class attribute and give button value to it. <a href="link" class="button">.

Please note that your button style maybe will only available from the reader, when you open your post from the reader. The class button really depends on your theme or css files that loaded in your page. You can force this to work using Inline Style method.

There are places that your post will probably be shown like in th reader, your site or mobile applications. In the current system this inconsistency can be prevented using 2 combined method, Inline Style and Classes.

Inline Style🔖

The inline style is specific to the tag itself. The inline style uses the HTML style attribute to style a specific tag. This is not recommended, as every CSS change has to be made in every tag that has the inline style applied to it. The inline style is good for one and individual CSS change that you do not use repeatedly through the site.

There are some ways to apply CSS to your page: Internal Stylesheet, External Stylesheet and Inline Styles. In this case, you only have the Inline Style option. How to do the inline style? You just need to add the style attribute to your tag.

<a href="" class="button" style="border: 1px solid black;padding: 4px;">Text Label</a>

Above code is just an example on how to apply inline style, for the complete syntax you can go to more buttons section.
