Spammers, you tease me so

On this here blog, WordPress lets me know when they have detected a Spam masquerading as a comment.  I get about 10 a week.  It’s like blog junk mail.  And I don’t even have the option of winning a trip to Aruba, all expenses paid.

Sometimes these spam comments they are something like, !@#%@#@!^&#y^&u&&&^$## and so you know they are spam, or else someone stuck writing with the number buttons only.

But sometimes, these spam comments are sneaky.  Like “You have a nice blog, I can tell you put a lot of time into it, I will tell my friends.” But the sender is some bizarre person like SpamGenerator2000@SpamsRus.com.  And that is just heartbreaking.  Also, I just made up that email address.  Please don’t try to click it and contact SpamGenerator2000. 

Also, my hopes for good blogs this week are dwindling.

  1. Sometimes remove their links and email & let the comments go through. I have been known to make fun of really stupid spammers.

      Hmm, that’s a great idea, since they are all some form of “nice blog, I will return soon”. Sometimes, I feel like I’ve just talked to the cashier at my local gas station, though. Lots of foreigners.

  2. One that I enjoyed making fun of took a phrase but didn’t read my post and posted something very unrelated.

  3. I sometimes get over a hundred a week. My favorite recent:

    “I know this has nothing to do with your post, but have you heard about soandsoringtones? Don’t be an ass, this isn’t spam.”

    What???

      Erm, Samantha, you may want to hide. It sounds like the weirdos are after you.

      But my personal favorite was this one where this guy with horrible grammar was like looking for porn and came across my blog and was mad. It was something like “hey make your blog match what comes up with google blah blah blah”. I should have written that guy back.

    Dear Kearsie’s Porn Guy,
    On behalf of my sister, I apologize for the delay in your…umm…hand-eye coordination. Perhaps next time you should be more specific in your search?
    Love,
    Kamryn

      I should have responded to that guy with “you look at your momma with those eyes?”

      That would’ve showed him.
