I get spam. You get spam. We all get spam.
I view the spam I’ve received here as a bit of a guilty pleasure. Just like settling in on a snowy Saturday and watching cartoons – minus the kids.
I thought I’d share the kind of spam I get and the posts that gave me this glorious gift. I get a kick out of checking the spam queue and seeing what little gems of wisdom show up and to what post they zeroed in on.
Right now I have 9 spam messages. The most popular post for spam has been Sunday Quotes from a couple of week ago. 6 of the 9 responded to that post.
By the by, I do a Food Porn post most Fridays. You would think with the word porn in the name I would get some spam action for that post but, alas, no.
So, here’s some highlights of what they had to say and what I’ve gleamed from the Sunday Quotes spams:
- the spammers want me to know that I know what I’m talking about ( just so that you know, I know that I know what I’m talking about when I copy and paste),
- something about quotes is arduous (must by all that copying and pasting),
- whoever is using the word “weblog” in their canned response obviously hasn’t updated in years,
- seriously, who uses “weblog” anymore and
- 4 of the 6 said thanks (manners, one must always use manners when spamming).
And here’s some of the spam:
Can I simply say what a relief to seek out somebody who truly knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You definitely know the right way to carry an issue to light and make it important. More folks have to read this and perceive this side of the story. I cant consider youre not more fashionable since you undoubtedly have the gift.
This is the correct weblog for anyone who wants to search out out about this topic. You understand a lot its virtually hard to argue with you (not that I really would want…HaHa). You undoubtedly put a brand new spin on a subject thats been written about for years. Great stuff, simply great!
It’s arduous to seek out educated folks on this matter, but you sound like you know what you’re talking about! Thanks
Your house is valueble for me. Thanks!…
The other post that spammers spammed their way to was the post The ABCs of Disability – The Letter W where I talked about asking “why” and “why me” when dealing with a chronic illness. Which of course explains why the 3 remaining spam had multiple links to somewhere and such intriguing sentences such as:
Alexandria was heavily fortified,
Nonetheless a substantial part of the UK population still lives in council housing,
and my very favourite response:
There are many psychological ailments commonly misunderstood as demonic possession.
Oh, and something else I have learned about spam:
- apostrophes are not necessary for contractions and
- spell check is optional.
Enjoy a, hopefully, spam-free day.
