BAD CatLady! BAD! or Banned by Net Nanny!

I received a thoughtful email yesterday from Oh My Goddess, informing me that she couldn't post comments on my blog because of a Net Nanny glitch. Guess I've been branded unfit for young readers. But, WTF... I wasn't exactly writing for young audiences.

Seems those dastardly bitches prim and proper ladies over at Net Nanny block people from being able to comment on blogs with unseemly content. Oh, yeah... that's me. Totally unseemly! I'm such a badass! Happily, the Goddess told me how I could circumvent Net Nanny and escape detection... simply use a pop-up instead of an imbedded comment configuration. Now I'll probably be getting lots of fun comments from her children, as well. Welcome, Oh My Godlets!

And just to make Jayne over at InJaynesWorld happy, I disabled the word verification feature while I was at it.  Jayne really hates those... she thinks they suck!  So, see there, Net Nanny... I really am a nice person because I like to make my friends happy.  So why are you hatin' on me?

Actually, it is an honor to have Net Nanny be hatin' on me.  That means I'm not quite the wuss I used to be.  In fact it makes me so proud, I've even developed a blog award* for other BadAss Bloggers who act in an unseemly manner:  




Now... to whom shall I give the award?  Tune in tomorrow to find out.

Hint:  It won't be going to Net Nanny.



*Thanks to Nanodance, (who came up with the idea for the award,) and to Moooooog for introducing me to motivational posters. Watch for Nanodance's companion BadAss Blogger award.

Brian Miller said...

i cant stand word verification...

Beth said...

We always knew you were bad. Now there is proof. :)

ReformingGeek said...

O Heavens to Betsy! You are indeed a BAD ASS and I'm right there with you.

;-)

Go Git'm, CatLady, go git'm.

Me-Me King said...

Living void of children in my household, hallelujah, I am not familiar with Net Nanny. How wonderful that your validation of being a real bad-ass is there for the world to see.

CatLadyLarew said...

Lee: It's amazing how happy you can make people by turning off the freaking word verification. (I confess, I hadn't even realized it was on.) I also didn't know Net Nanny existed until Elise clued me in. But it sure makes me proud that they noticed me... I'm such an attention hog!

Brian: I always say, you haven't truly lived until you've been blacklisted by somebody! Fellowtravellers unite!

Beth: Proof positive! Thank you, Net Nanny!

Reffie: We bad girls have to stick together! It's the right thing to do!

Me-Me: Although I have a grown kid, I never felt the need to restrict his internet activities when he was younger. Besides, he now amuses me regularly with the silly, obnoxious, inappropriate stuff he finds. (And I'm a bad mom... I laugh uproariously!)

Jeanie said...

I not even close to in the running for your award, but I sure to like the button (is that what it's called?). Congrats for getting under Net Nanny's skin.

otin said...

I know that no one will get through to my site, then! LOL! I guess I should throw in a few spongebob stories to attract a younger readership.

Michelle H. said...

I hate the word verification too. The only thing you have to worry about now are spam commentors who dump men enhancement product links on past posts. I had to set up comment moderation on posts older than 14 days.

First I heard of Net Nanny. Hmm... probably banned already just by the name of my blog.

Keep on keeping on, Oh Cat Lady of Badass-ness. Fight THE MAN!

Jayne Martin said...

Yay! The CatLady totally rocks! I'm doing the happy dance!

Now what is this "net nanny" of which you speak?

Janice said...

Net Nanny sounds kind of scary...like big brother or the CIA. At any rate, I've often thought that negative attention is much more fun than positive attention. So, yayz to you!

Shieldmaiden96 said...

I ditched word verification but I had to go to approval on all my comments because some folks in Asia seem to think I need both a new computer and a new penis.(At least, that's what I think they want to give me; my Japanese is mostly limited to martial arts applications) So to keep the electronic and penis offers off posts about my dead grandmother I have to approve everything. But I don't think I've ever been BANNED anywhere. Except probably the White House, but it was a long time ago and I didn't realize the FBI was watching them and, well, story for another time.

Quirkyloon said...

Net Nanny? She sent you to the naughty carpet (or whatever the Nanny person sends a naughty child to.)

Never heard of Net Nanny. I'm sure I've been banned, because I regularly showcase zombies on my blog.

Definitely a NZR rating, no?

Ha!

McGillicutty said...

I am an Otin Groupie, I came to check you out after his hilarious story about you!!! Love your blog and think you should keep it exactly the way it is Net Nanny or no Net Nanny.

p.s. wtf is net nanny??????/

Awesomeness said...

Uh oh! Look out for you!! You're going to have to replace your cutesy kittens with tigers.

Rawr!

Skip Simpson said...

Never heard of NetNanny... but I have mental pictures of what these people look like!

When did I become my Mom said...

Heh heh heh. Ur a baaad cat lady! Glad u turned off the word verification tho! Pain in the a$$. Oh! There goes the Net Nanny alert again!

rxBambi said...

I've never heard of net nanny either, but I think she's a real bitch.

Hooray for bad girl cat ladies!

Oh and watch out for McGillicutty, she's a wicked wee thing...

haha just kidding, she's my twin and I love her. Of course, she's the evil twin...

Scott Free said...

That Net Nanny! You could take her down any day, Cat Lady. :D

CatLadyLarew said...

Jeanie: You never know... you could be more BadAss than you think!

Otin: I'd love to see you explain SpongeBob next!

Michelle: Do you think The Man is related to the Net Nanny?

Jayne: You know I'd do anything for you! Bring on the happy dance!

Janice: I'll have to sic Cat Larew on the Net Nanny!

Shieldmaiden: Big Brother is definitely watching... unless, of course, you're trying to sneak into a state dinner. (Unlike you, I guess they weren't banned.)

Quirky: I'll just be over here on the naughty carpet if you need anything!

McGillicutty: Welcome! There are quite a few of us Otin Groupies... his stories are all supremely awesome!

Awesomeness: The big cats have nothing on my pink kitty!

Skip: Do you use a full-body scanner for those mental images of the Net Nanny?

No Way Have You Really Become Your Mom: Let's all say PAIN IN THE ASS together so we can all be on the banned list!

rxBambi: McGillicutty's your evil twin? Oh, this should be fun!

Scotty: This week on Monday Night Raw.... Take Down... CatLady vs. Net Nanny!

Ronda Laveen said...

I'm proud of ya, girl! Get your badass self on!

gayle said...

You are awesome!! WonderfuL!! Net Nanny can...........

frigginloon said...

Friggin Net nanny, blahahahahaah I guess that is why no little snowflakes come a visiting Friggin Loon. I think I got banned in 1935. I have a right mind to go over to their site and right ungodly words in their comments, see how they like getting banned !!!!

CatLadyLarew said...

Ronda: How wonderful it is to finally have someone proud of me! Hahahaha!

Gayle: Glad you stopped before you said something you'd regret!

frigginloon: How do they know we're going to warp young minds until they let us try?

Corrie Howe said...

I'm glad you took off word verification. I think Lee's or Daffy's rant finally got to me. It is so much easier to follow more blogs when word verification doesn't slow me down.

I love the new award. Waiting for my day to get it. ;-)

The Queen said...

Oh crap.. if someone is black listing you.. I"m so screwed..and I too have to go check out this NANNY NET... thing..

is it a group of ugly angry.. unlaid women... ??? I'll send em toys and batteries and it will all be better!!!

Unknown Mami said...

Net Nanny? Is that for real?

CatLadyLarew said...

Corrie: What I hate the most is when I think I've commented and log off, only to find out the word verification popped up afterward and my comment wasn't saved. Sucks!

Your Majesty: As long as you're giving out toys... We can all feel better!

Mami: I actually googled it... so you know it's gotta be true! Google wouldn't lie! (It was Elise aka Oh My Goddess that let me know she was blocked from commenting on my site.)

Occasionally called Robbie said...

fantastic! - I'm not sure I'll every reach your high accolade of Badass, but I now have a new motivation, thank you :)

Randomization said...

You're a rebel!
I love it XD

The Quirk Shop said...

Oh now that is AWESOME.

No such thing as 'bad press' at all. In fact, I'm rolling here reading that "NetNanny" (the name alone makes me guffaw!) deems you unsuitable for viewing by tender eyes.

You have ARRIVED, my dear fellow rebellious BADASS. Please don't ever change. Enjoy the ride!

Love,
Ellie

Phillipia said...

Thanks for taking off the word verification...much as I like to see what pops up...I hate those things.

I must be color blind or word verification blind or captcha blind or something...

And you are a very nice lady in my book...

CatLadyLarew said...

Gumley: I always make it a point to provide support and guidance to those younger than myself so they can achieve their life goals.

Randomization: Rebel? That makes me sound so cool! And BadAss!

Ellie: I know I've arrived, but the real question is WHERE?

Phillipia: Always glad to make a friend happy! (I've been trying to get over being nice for many years now!)
