The Devil’s Details: Don’t Insult Me Through Spam Comments!

No-Spam-CanI don’t usually check the Spam section of the comments here, because the filter is generally pretty accurate. However, every once in a while the number builds up, and I go and check it out for a laugh. The thing that really amuses me is the atrocious English and the utterly generic content that is intended to be applicable to any post of any kind – except they’re not. Time after time I’m praised for the “information” on my site; I rarely post information of any kind.

“This is the right blog for anyone who wants to learn about this topic. You realize so much its pretty much difficult to argue with you (not that I truly would want?-HaHa). You absolutely put a new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Fantastic stuff, just great!”

Some of it, on the other hand, is nearly unintelligible:

“Continue to maintain up the pretty very good operate. I just extra up your RSS feed to my MSN News Reader.”

Or:

“However never the actual significantly less it turned out stimulating.”

The point is, they’re always praising me, sucking up and hoping I’ll click the link to their website. Sometimes I do for fun, so I suppose their goal was achieved.

But then the other day, I got this one:

“The next time I read a weblog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as a lot as this 1. I mean, I know it was my selection to read, but I basically thought youd have something intriguing to say. All I hear is often a bunch of whining about some thing that you simply could fix if you happen to werent too busy seeking for attention.”

I mean hey, come on – if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all! Apparently I could fix all my problems if I didn’t spend all my time seeking attention.

Hm. I think the whole point of my blog is to get people to read it, so yes – I do want attention. But next time, don’t insult me!

  1. What?!? This reminds me of George Carlin’s response to a minister who wanted a radio show cancelled –
    “Well, Reverend, did you know there are two dials on a radio? One to change the channel and one to turn it off!”
    😛

  2. Was that actually a real comment? I guess it could actually be a pretty smart approach to getting you to click. Crazy times

Tell me something!
