The simple charms of spam comments

Sometimes, spam is super exotic. (Note the sushi presentation.)

There’s a darn good reason I moderate comments here, because if I didn’t there would be several spam comments each week that would slip through, despite WordPress’ (generally quite good) filters.

Honestly, I don’t get why folks bother even creating spam. The vast majority of these comments are so obviously fake that they’re not worth the tiny amounts of electricity used to send them. They’re also attached to posts several weeks/months/years old. Way to stay current.

I guess the goal is for you to click whatever’s hyperlinked and, I don’t know, buy sneakers or get hacked or something. Maybe if you send a million of these out, you’re bound to get one or two people who fall for it. (Don’t be that guy.)

Anyway, a recent review of my spam queue found so much comedic potential, I had to throw a few examples out there. Sometimes they’re so bad, they’re awesome. Note that I’ve stripped out all harmful and/or spam links. You won’t click on anything specious. I’ve also preserved the spelling, because…wow. 

But you can never be the best at everything.

A leopard can’t change its spots and all that. There are a couple sides to this
topic, so let’s take a look at this for a minute.

This comment came in on a post welcoming new blog followers after a recent surge in subscriptions. And the correspondent is right. I suppose I could not welcome my blog followers. Especially if they’re leopards. I think this warrants several minutes of looking, in fact. I shall now look for leopards whenever I blog.

This year the Cup would be very close! It comes down to
flip of a coin in my opinion buut excellent luck to both teams!

I might be watchhing the entire match!

This spam came on a piece I did on traditional versus self-publishing, which is how I got all the followers in the first place. Actually, I’d love to see Authors United and Amazon square off in a game of sportsball…except that authors and techies are both rather sedentary. Could be slow going.

Well, maybe Gaugin is one heck of a goalie, and can help the BBC overcome the Steelers. Or maybe he could join Authors United against F.C. Amazon. But only this week. Next week, Gaugin is taking up figure skating.

Obviously, you’re onto my evil-mastermind scheme of controlling the weather via blog post. Or maybe just close your window. It’s October, after all.

Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of
hard work due to no backup. Do you have any methods to stop hackers?

Yes. Use the spam filters.

I already knew Uggs were made of two sauces and a starch component, because Vince Ferraren always smelled like Thanksgiving when he walked into a room. Or perhaps that was just his particular undergarment, which marked him as a denizen of his hometown. (You know, some of these could be great flash fiction prompts.)

Dude. Are you berating me? I’m writing my books as fast I can can. (Also, there was no actual video on the post where this showed up.)
