Please Pass The Spam

There has been an increase in spam comments the last two months. Every spam robot has its own strategy to get you to publish its comments. These are some of my favorites.

I want you to think I'm asking a question:
I just couldn't depart your website prior to suggesting that I really loved the standard info an individual supply for your visitors? Is gonna be back steadily to check out new posts. Can you tell me which theme and colors you are using in design? Also visit my web page
This comment has a question mark in it. Surely I should publish it, and then visit that web page to answer.

I am a friendly robot:
Thank you for the auspісіous writеup. It in fact was a аmusemеnt aссount іt. Look adѵancеd to far аdded agreеable from you! By the way, how сοulԁ we сommunicate? Also ѵisit my web pаge;
If you want to communicate, I think you might want to start with some basic English lessons. I am so happy you enjoyed my amusement account.

I can use a big word:
This post іѕ in faсt a faѕtіdious one it аssiѕts new the web people, whο are wishing in favor οf bloggіng. Also visit mу blog post
These spam robots seem to love the word "fastidious" so very much. I am happy to assist all of the "web people" and their new wishes.

I want you to be flattered:
Can I just ѕay whаt a аіd to find somеbodу who trulу knows what thеyге speakіng abοut оn the internet. You undoubtedly know easу mеthodѕ to carry a ԁifficulty to light аnԁ make іt important. Еxtrа people must leаrn thіs and peгceiνe this facet οf the storу. I cant believe youre not mοгe fashionable because you definitely havе the gіft.
I will find all the extra people I can, and share my special wisdom with them immediately.
Thanks for your marvelous posting! I genuinely enjoyed reading it, you might be a great author. I will make certain to bookmark your blog and may come back later in life. I want to encourage one to continue your great posts, have a nice day! Here is my weblog:
I am a great author. Thank you spam robot.

I will give you advice:
I think that everything published was actually very logical. But, what about this? suppose you were to write a killer headline? I ain't saying your information is not solid, but suppose you added something that grabbed people's attention? I mean "A Hat Full of Baby Squirrels" is kinda plain. You might peek at Yahoo's home page and see how they create news titles to get people to open the links. You might add a related video or a picture or two to get readers excited about everything've written. Just my opinion, it could make your website a little livelier. Also visit my web page
I am so sorry that the seven pictures I included in this post were not enough for you. Next time I write about raising baby squirrels, I will be sure to give it a more exciting title like, "Are These Robot Squirrels Trying To Kill You?" or "If You Don't Do This, All The Squirrels Will Die" or "Baby Squirrels Attack Blogger And Steal Her Hat - News At 7."
Howdy, There's no doubt that your blog might be having web browser compatibility problems. When opening in Internet Explorer 3, it has some overlapping issues. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Apart from that, wonderful blog! Feel free to surf to my blog.
If you are trying to open anything in Internet Explorer 3, you have more issues than just a little overlapping.

Maybe if I insult you, you will publish this comment:
At first I thought this was good article, and then I realized it seemed to be written by someone who is brain dead. Is that you Eric! Nah. Even Eric isn't extreme stupid. You should not be allowed to use pen. To learn something real, you check out site where people write smart like this: ____ 
I am so glad to know that Eric isn't extreme stupid. I would address your claim of my being brain dead, but my pen seems to have run out of ink.

I have random information to share:
It allows both parities involved, who are not ready to make a real commitment, to make a lesser commitment. While we don't think of divorce as being very common in the 1920's, this newspaper article stated the need for the divorce ring due to "divorce having become so frequent that it is considered there is a need for a distinctive emblem. Oftentimes, couple will give promise to one another as a means of declaring their love for one another.
Why are you telling me about these 1920's divorce rings? Are you selling them? I am pretty sure it would not go well if you gave someone a divorce ring to declare your love.
The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone! Here is my website.
Thank you so much for sharing. I was sitting on the edge of my seat, wondering if anyone had thrown an iPad off of a building.

I am a creative and awesome spam robot:
well first who at any time consider that hulk can conquer superman can be a idiot and should jump off a roof were talking about a guy who can push against 200 quintillon ton(that's a great deal of 00000s)WITH 1 ARM AND Still DID NOT FIND AN UPPER LIMIT IF SUPERMAN RELLY WANTED HE'LL BITCH SLAP HULK IN TO OUTER SPACE AND BEYOND AND THE HULK WEIGHT WHAT ABOUT 1 TON Here is my web page:: nhs
Honestly. I have nothing to add to this comment.
It wins the Best Spam Award.

Have you noticed a lot of spam comments attacking your blog?


  1. I've noticed the very same spam robots attacking my blob. gotta love Google translate for its entertainment value!

  2. Your response to the iPad spam cracked me up! What are these people thinking?! Haha. Thanks for the (now) Monday morning laugh!

  3. I get the same thing...argh!

  4. That last one is a winner! I think I have received each of those types of spam. I mostly don't even look through them anymore, but once in a while a creative one will catch my eye!

  5. Oh, I thank the heavens for askimet on wordpress.....would have a headache with spam otherwise! Thanks for sharing!

  6. We have totally noticed an increase in is ridiculous! This post made me laugh out loud!-Ashley

  7. Classics, all of them. I also enjoy the people who visit and aren't even spam. They just say: great post, hey I follow back so make sure you check out my blog.

    Funniest one? The one where some one who is way more crafty than Martha Stewart who wrote that obviously we have a lot in common so I should come to her blog and find out why.

    Dude, if you read my blog you know that crafting to me is like kryptonite to superman!

    But I was polite and just ignored.

  8. I haven't, but that's because I don't know how to check my spam folder. Now I want to, though, because this post is so funny. Love your responses!

  9. I like the ones that read like Vogon love poetry.
    No mаtteг if some onе searcheѕ for his requiгed thing,
    so he/shе needs tο be available that in ԁetail,
    so that thing iѕ maintained ovеr here
    Brings a profundity to my blog that it was clearly lacking. Thank you, Spambot.

  10. That was hilarious. Loved the way you categorized the spammers. I just let them leave their comments. It makes me look like more people are interested in what I'm writing. :P

  11. My spam isn't nearly that creative, but I have received the one that suggests I should use more photos in my posts. That one makes me laugh.

  12. LOL!! I love your comebacks! If only they could appreciate it!

  13. Bahahahahaha!!!! Love it! Yes I've been getting a lot of these lately too! I also love your comebacks, awesome sauce!

  14. Hi Tracie,

    I thought it was just me but I have also noticed an increase in spam comments.

    I'm thinking, yah I want to post your comment. Nope. I won't click on their links anymore - ever since my laptop froze due to the Mounted Police Trojon.

    Luckily I have a guest account set up. I was able to get access to it so I could figure out what was wrong with my laptop and how to fix it. That particular Trojan takes control of your computer and locks you out until you pay their bogus fine of one hundred dollars.

    So be careful.

  15. I noticed an increase in spam back around the end of last year. I've checked my comments in blogger almost daily and mark the spam ones. The blogger spam filter does a decent job of collecting it but I also use Disqus so none of it seems to get through. I would have thought since it was not getting through they would give up and move on but they didn't. I now think they are trying to tempt the blogger into coming over to a site that is high on the referral list. It's a crazy and annoying game.

  16. Sadly, I have gotten 2 real comments on my little blog (and one of them was from someone I don't even know in real life!) but about 6 attempted spam comments, which I obviously didn't publish (I have comment moderation, so I have to approve all comments.) Each time I get an email that I have a comment, I get all excited, then I realize it's spam. Oh well.

  17. Yeah I have had those spam comments and I just delete them I don't like spam in any way shape or form that includes the stuff that is suppose to be

  18. I get some pretty creative spam too - these were funny. I delete them all - they kinda creep me out.

  19. That last one was the best! There's just something about picturing Superman bitch slapping Hulk that has me cracking up!

  20. You've gotten some good ones! Some of them are so funny. I have noticed more spam lately, too. Summer must be bringing out the spammers. :)

  21. I get a lot of funny spam too but I loved your responses! Absolutely hysterical!

  22. I get some of the exact same ones....spam is fun! At least when the filters catch it

  23. I love reading them! They are hysterical. I had one just the other day that asked me about sharing my post with his myspace group. Um, yeah, if anybody is still hanging out on myspace I'm sure they'd love my post!!

  24. I loved this...I get the weirdest spam comments!
