That’s the Stuff

15 04 2012

I have a slew of blog posts waiting on the docket (Is this a bad time to mention that I actually do have a docket for blog posts? Hint: it’s more like a folder with photos.) but this month has been a crazed mish-mash of celebration and sickness, and this coming week isn’t going to be any better. That isn’t what I’m referring to by the Spam picture, though (which I ruthlessly stole from wikipedia).

Despite my obvious blog neglect, I still had 36 comments that got stuck in my spam filter. (Is this a bad time to mention how much I hate Blogger’s new “Please prove you aren’t a robot” word verification? Hint: it’s a lot.)

When you get more spam comments than actual comments, it means you need to update your blog more often.  (Hint: that was just a personal note for me.)

I like to glance through these, just to see which post has generated the flurry. (Hint: the “Gluten-Free” tab post wins every time.)

Here’s my favorite from the latest batch:

I just wanted to develop a brief note to be able to express gratitude to you for the magnificent tips you are sharing on this website. My long internet research has finally been paid with incredibly good know-how to exchange with my partners. I ‘d assume that many of us website visitors are undeniably fortunate to dwell in a really good website with many wonderful professionals with valuable things. I feel somewhat fortunate to have seen your website page and look forward to many more awesome times reading here. Thank you once more for a lot of things.

Awkward, much?

What always cracks me up is that the addressee is generally a name like, “win the lottery” or “bodybuilding blog” or “Polo Shirts Sale,” which is then followed by a long url. I firmly support a person’s right to try and make money on the Internet, but seriously? Who ever clicks on those? They are so obviously a scam, not to mention the cyber-equivalent of dropping your candy wrapper on someone’s lawn in the hope that it will inspire them to buy it.

(Hint: Not. Going. To. Happen.)

Thanks for visiting this website page–I hope you felt undeniably fortunate to dwell here and read some incredibly good know-how. Come back for more awesome times, and feel free to develop a brief note to express your gratitude for my magnificent tips. (Hint: I can never get enough of those.)

You can always tell a good restaurant by the fact that they make their Spam fresh instead of using canned.

lol almost sounds like my daughter’s ESL class she teaches at GRCC – except in one of the English papers, the student was going to kill her – so he could pass the class [no joke]

You shouldn’t have mentioned that you stole the spam photo. I was thinking Wow she is really devoted to her bolg to lay spam out for a photo shoot. 🙂

I have my blog set up so that there’s no word verification, but I have to approve all comments. I think if someone takes the time to comment, the shouldn’t have to cross their eyes and turn their head to see the stupid captchas.
