Let’s have a post for some little fun before I get back to work on the actual news.
I spent a chunk of today clearing out spam comments, thank you Akismet~
However, I skim them to make sure nothing legit got snatched up by it. This is something I’ve been doing for awhile now from Eidenyaku and started doing so for here. I got a few gems, and some that upset me so much.
I can’t believe the people who would take advantage of the earthquake in Japan to use it as a platform for spamming. They often had for the body of the comment, “All of our hearts go out to the people of Japan with this time of anguish.” with advertising in their name or URL. This is ridiculous and I will not tolerate it. Even if Akismet is blocking them, I’m banning them as well.
I seem to get a lot of spam for mp3 players and ‘online gambling sites’. Uh. Sure.
But sometimes, there are a few gems out there:
My family and I are at the beach and I have been trying to show them your blog, but I hadn’t bookmarked it before we left home and therefore it took me FOREVER to find it using Google. Now that I have found it, the reason why I wanted to show them, is I believe that you and I are competing against each other with our blogs. I am convinced there are enough people in the world to where we can both survive, but I wanted you to know what I am using to get fresh content while I am on vacation as it is only fair. Check this out! Take care and I look forward to the continued competition when I return home!!
“My spouse and i have been now joyful Louis managed to carry out his preliminary research through your ideas he made from your very own web site. It’s not at all simplistic to simply choose to be freely giving information that others may have been trying to sell. And we also realize we need you to thank for this. The most important illustrations you’ve made, the easy site navigation, the friendships your site make it easier to promote – it’s all fabulous, and it is aiding our son in addition to the family reason why that article is awesome, which is certainly seriously vital. Thanks for everything!”
On the ClaDun post:
“I think i just had a light bulb appear over my head thanks to your blog. lol good job.”
“There is perceptibly a ton of stuff taking place in Egypt to know its association with the bible. I consider the next year will fulfill prophecy. Your thoughts?”
“conventionally I really have a good time reading your blog. What you have procreated has become a daily reading routine for me. I know sometimes you don’t always revise your blog, but I still enjoy reading your latest post (when you have one).”
“Hi, i just thought i’d post and allow you realize your information sites layout is seriously messed up for the K-Melon browser.”
My answer: Get a real browser.
“howdy did you pay for this blog theme you’re working with or did you happen to obtain it free somewhere and in that case could you please tell me exactly where cheers”
Answer: I made it. Next.
“My partner make your mind up to do it help to make nice and clean on could fit right in planning to check back”
“Whats hattnin, yeuh dis blog right heur is ill, big ups PAAAATNAAAA.”
Right. Learn to speak English before spamming me again.
“Looks like the End of Days to me Jen! I’m a little concerned you might not have things right with God, maybe now would be a good time ya think?”
My name isn’t Jen.
“His “affair”is a pain in your heart foreverAffair eventsAlthough the pieces of your heart,Although you love him, he does not value you,Although you pay so much, but did not return,”
It’ll look less like spam if you were 1) on topic; 2) coherent.
“wait, no but seriously, WAS James Franco high at the Oscars?”
“Hi there. I enjoyed ” ClaDun 2 Image | Endless History “. It was nice. View my blog sometime. It’s ducati exhaust blog :).”
If you fix your bot, you might actually fool me for more than half a second into thinking that you honestly care.
Now that I’ve got some of this out of my system… once I’m done with my spam clearing, I’ll get to the real news. I promise.
