I get spam

April 28, 2011

Worpress has a really great service called Askimet which protects the blogs that it hosts from all manner of spam comments. It blocks them before they can be posted and holds them in a spam folder which I review from time to time in case  someone’s real comment is accidentally gobbled up and banished as spam. It was during one such review today that I realized whoever is writing up all these spam comments and sending them out to blogs must be a real idiot. Here’s a sample of some “comments” in my spam folder:

Very true! Makes a change to see somenoe spell it out like that.

That’s really thinking out of the box. Tanhks!

That’s the best answer of all time! JMHO

You’ve hit the ball out of the park! Incdreilbe!

Are you kidding me, spam bots? That’s the best you can do? No wonder Askimet catches so many of these things. They’re really poorly done. I would be much more impressed with these spammers if they at least tried a little. How hard can it be to write a few short sentences that are both coherent and applicable across a wide range of topics? Here’s a few:

Nice post. I tend to disagree with your last point though.

I said something like that myself once. What do you think about cheese though?

I know, right? It’s like I always say, the only good moose is a dead moose…

Ok, so maybe those aren’t great either, but at least they’re creative. What would you guys write as your spam comments?
