Spam I Love to Hate

images

Ever go through your spam comments folder on your blog? If so, you must have a “Best of Spam” list—those messages so audacious or poorly written or inane that they invite a response, and yet how dare you? Any reaction at all is sure to invite more spam.

Today, I wrote this Skype message to okcforgottenman: (Remi is my alter-ego name.  If you really want to be my friend, call me Remi!!!)

[9/24/17, 2:30:41 PM] Judy/Remi: I love it when I get spam that says my blog could use some fresh content— like I haven’t posted in the last five minutes. Who posts more posts a day than I DO? I am sometimes embarrassed at the number of posts I make.  People must think I just sit around blogging all day and I have no life at all. Only way they know I do is that somehow I manage to have events to post about.

[9/24/17, 2:31:27 PM] Judy/Remi: People post a one-liner and get a million views. No one works harder for fewer views than I do!!!

[9/24/17, 2:32:29 PM] Judy/Remi: I quote : “I see your website needs some fresh articles. Writing manually takes a lot of time, but there is tool for this boring task, search for: XXXXXXX* tools for content.” 

[9/24/17, 2:32:34 PM] Judy/Remi: (Expletive deleted) !!!

*(Site deleted—why give them free advertising?)

Do you have Spam you love to hate?  If so, please share it.

    If answering these people wouldn’t end up with my having a virally-infected computer,. I so much want to tell them that more content is NOT my issue. My blogs do NOT run off the edge of the page. I have NO problem connecting. I am NOT going to advise them on what platform to use. I do NOT want to look at their website or advertise their product which is almost always porn.

    Everything I get these days has viruses in it, so I just delete, delete, delete.

    I knew I had a spam folder, I do NOT look in there. Not after an unsettling flamer incident early in my blogging ‘career’. I dumped the flamers in the spam folder (or had WP do it) and well now I’m rather scared to look if I’m honest. My email and WP too for that matter seem to take care of most of it…

    I mostly get spam on my serial fiction posts. The ones that say it is informative, that I know the most about the subject, or that I helped them solve a problem annoy me because that isn’t at all what I’m going for.

    I also get the offers to help me come up with content. Yeah. Right. Like I’m just dying to host some stranger’s ads for viagra.

    Lately it’s been in some oriental lettering. I have no idea what it’s about, and just zap it all.

      I usually do, too, but decided it would make an interesting post. I worked on it this afternoon. Will perhaps just go with what I have and let people add on in categories. Look for it later tonight or tomorrow.

    I’ve had some really interesting SPAM over the years. There was a time, when I first started blogging, a lot of people who commented or followed were trying to push a way of making big bucks over the internet. “Check out this video.” Common sense tells you that if everyone as participating in this scheme, there finally would be a glut of money-makers and a dearth of money-payers. 🙂

    Intriguing SPAM:
    I posted the haiku poem “Fly by Night”
    Wings over hayfield
    moonlight in the hunter’s eyes;
    the grasses tremble

    And received the following comment:
    I wish to express my appreciation to this writer just for rescuing me from such a situation. Because of looking through the world-wide-web and seeing advice that were not productive, I assumed my entire life was done. Existing without the presence of solutions to the difficulties you have sorted out by means of your entire guideline is a critical case, and the kind which might have negatively affected my entire career if I had not noticed your blog. The competence and kindness in handling all the things was very helpful. I don’t know what I would have done if I had not discovered such a subject like this. I am able to at this point look forward to my future. Thank you very much for this professional and sensible guide. I won’t think twice to recommend your web page to anybody who requires guide about this topic.

    Surely this would be in the running for your SPAM Blue Ribbon? 🙂

    Oh, at your suggestion I just looked in my SPAM queue and found this bit of wisdom:
    Usually do not anticipate to you should every person using the selections you will certainly be producing. This day is designed for you, which is depending on what you like. Usually do not let anyone who may criticize get you straight down or make you improve your brain. Do what definitely makes you pleased since you will keep this in mind day time for an extended time then anyone else will. Followed by a URL for an “images” site. ??

      Okay, Christine. What category does it fit in or do you want to suggest a new category? My posting is up for the Award nominations and I’ve run it by WordPress who says there should be no problem with duplicating the comments. Yours is a doozie.

    I keep adding to my word list of blocked discussions – porn in any and all possible permutations. And they keep coming up with new ones! Admittedly I get less of it than I used to…
