Fun With Spammers

questionUsually, I delete spam but some spam deserves to fodder for blogging fun. This is also keeping with #8 in the About Comments. The other day I found this in my spam filters.

Your blog sucks, that’s because you have not yet agree to accept my exchange link proposal, call me.

Well, gee this is the first I’ve heard of an link exchange. How am I supposed to call someone when I don’t have a phone number for them.

Very much utilitarian enter but there are some place where I last wishes as not agree. But comprehensive its completely good.

I don’t really know where to start ripping this one.  It would be nice if there was at least one complete sentence.

Hello,
Need help resetting my password.
Thank you,

Well, gee I don’t know why some random dude is asking me for help with his password. Here goes try this “imstupid” or “idiot”.

Why hello my associates I am a long time reader but I finally decided to register and make a post. I just wanted to tell everyone that I really do like being part of this community. I cant wait to start posting messages.

Obviously this rocket scientist is confused. It is my blog not a community. He sure isn’t posting messages here. He isn’t even smart enough to get past the spam filter.

Great headline. If your cookie has a bite-sized action and your reader completes the action, I think two things happen. Their self-confidence goes up (which feels good) and their trust in you increases.

OK, someone pass the Oreos and see if that improves your self-confidence. Yes, I know what a cookie is.

I have noticed that some spammers are getting a little smarter by leaving what appears to be a normal comment with a link to their site.  While other spammers just leave gibberish.

  1. Maybe they are from the IT people in foreign lands. These are the very limited English speakers who have been “employed” to solve your computer problems.

  2. Dee,
    I just got one from Russia about their shop’s good reviews fixing automotive radiators. Why get it done locally when I can ship it halfway around the world (after having the local shop remove it). Pay who knows what to this shop. Then pay to ship it back who knows when. finally have the local shop put it back and pray it works again. Yeah, that makes sense.

What's on your mind?
