One of my favorite, but most frustrating things is comments. It’s such a joy to see that someone is out there reading and enjoying what you are writing. But SPAMMERS just make the whole process completely frustrating. So instead of getting angry, I thought I’d poke a little fun.
Okay, it’s Tuesday, and I came on here to write a regular blog post, but the spam comments were too good not to share. So enjoy.
Spam Comment 1: “I apologise, but, in my opinion, you are not right. I can defend the position. Write to me in PM, we will communicate”.
Spammer: myself? Pretty clever, but that’s not my email address.
My Response: I know that I am not right, I am never right. But let me guess, you are a meteorologist, and you came here to tell me that I can’t predict the weather. If I am wrong, why are you apologizing for it?
Spam Comment 2: “Hey man, you have a sick site but could definitly use some SEO help to rank your blog higher. There is this pretty cool plug in that will fix all your SEO very easily at *random crazy link that the spammer leaves* ”
Spammer: Ashli Conary
My Response: I didn’t realize that my blog had a fever and post nasal drip. I will be sure to get it right to the doctor, as soon as I am finished making sure that everyone knows what a stupid spam comment this is.
Spam Comment 3: “Found this post typing in ‘domains’ on Google. I was looking for some ideas for a post, and I basically wrote a short “summary” of your post. Don’t worry – I gave you credit with a link ”
Spammer: Body Building
My Response: That’s very sweet of you to give me credit for writing my own thoughts in a blog post. You amaze me with your Google skills, and that my little old blog would pop up under the search term “domains”. I must be a better blogger than I thought .
Each day I look forward to combing through the spam comments to see just how ridiculous they can be.
So, tell me, What Do You Do To Prevent Spammers?
