most of the comments i get on my articles and essays you haven’t seen posted on the site here, because most of them so far have been spam, which i filter out. UNTIL NOW. at first i was a little sad about getting nothing by way of response but ads for carpet cleaning services, video games, assorted porns and pills and elixirs. especially when the spams seem so innocent and encouraging at first: good article, they say. interesting information, i’ll be back to look at more.
then, comment spam being what it is, there is a link in there that leads you away from common sense, good grammar, proper use of (ahem) capital letters, and closer to buying something you probably don’t need, from a page that looks like it has been run through translator pages from several different languages before it got to the one you are reading it in. anyone who runs a site or blog with a comment section knows what i’m on about.
the spams are often written in this same jambalaya of reverse-engineered language. though they are written by faceless digital trolls who bank on the eventual ignorance of someone clicking on their link and losing their inhibitions, or private information if the link leads to a malicious spyware hackertrap, they occasionally make me laugh with their silly talk. here’s a few samples.
“Its such as you read my mind! You appear to understand so much about this, like you wrote the e book in it or something. I feel that you simply can do with a few % to power the message house a little bit, but other than that, that is wonderful blog. A fantastic read. I’ll certainly be back.”
“I was checking continuously this blog and I’m impressed! Extremely useful information specifically the last part. I maintain such information much. I was seeking this particular info for a very long time.”
“You are actually a excellent webmaster. The site loading pace is amazing. It seems that you are doing any distinctive trick.”
“However, what concerning the conclusion? Are you sure concerning the source? What i don’t realize is if truth be told how you’re no longer actually much more neatly-liked than you may be now. You’re very intelligent.”
“My brother suggested I would possibly like this blog. He used to be entirely right.”
“Hello there, simply changed into aware of your blog via Google, and found that it is truly informative. I’m gonna watch out for brussels.”
“Great web site. Plenty of helpful info here. I’m sending it to a few pals ans also sharing in delicious. And obviously, thank you in your sweat!”
then there’s this doozy, which is only part of a really long thing that sounds like a bad lip reading:
“Discover which is knead vitamin on every side achieve wrinkles there!

my personal favorite is this:
“Its like women and men don’t seem to be fascinated unless it is one thing to do with Lady gaga! Your personal stuffs great. All the time care for it up!”
so, thank you spambots for crawling my webpage and giving me something to laugh about. and to you, my real readers, be good to each other. and don’t forget to take the time once in a while to care for it up.
