Did you know that I have to filter spam comments on my blog? In the same way that you can be subject to viruses in junk email, my blog site could be affected by these internet trolls.
I usually just delete the spam, but I’ve been saving them lately. It’s just a stitch to see the poor grammar and the vague comments that are used to try and trick me (and others) into clicking on dangerous links.
For instance, I received this comment for My Rosemary Incident: “Man, this is definitely superb information.”
Do you remember My Rosemary Incident? There IS no superb information! Just line after line of a pathetic hunt for one teaspoon of fresh rosemary! “Superb information.” Pffff. Puh-lease.
“Very beneficial plus excellent” is the comment that I got regarding No Dignity Left at the Gym by a responder named “Christmas Ornaments.” Seriously? I’m sorry, but “beneficial?” What exactly was it about my “seizure flailing” (as one friend put it) that benefitted you, Christmas Ornaments?
Handmade Christmas Ornaments told me that my brief note regarding Charley being rushed to the hospital was “valuable & excellent.” That was the complete comment.
(Isn’t it interesting that the more complimentary a spammer is of my writing, the more obvious it is that it’s junk?)
But I think my favorite was when “Britney Spears” wrote regarding An Old, Quirky Thanksgiving Incident, “It’s the best time to make some plans for the longer term and it’s time to be happy. I have learn this put up and if I may I desire to recommend you some interesting things or suggestions. Perhaps you could write next articles regarding this article. I want to read even more things approximately it.”
Britney, you want to read more articles about sucking up stinkbugs in a vacuum cleaner?! …Well, that might take a while.
